Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier that recently had the alternator replaced. This, therefore, activated the Theftlock device in the stereo. Being that I bought the car second-hand I do not have the code to unlock it. Is there any way to reset the device and have a working stereo?

I think you might have to go right to a gm dealer to have this one fixed, i wish i could help more but my cav already had the factory stereo removed by the time i got it, try checking all over the stereo for a reset button, you never know

I got a 1996 chevy cavalier bought new battery and alternator but when u take the jump box off it dies its acting like its not charging battery lights on and dies immediately.


Make dure you installed the alternator cortectly. If do, you were probably sold a bad alternator. Take the alternator to the parts store you bought it at. The will.test it and refund your money, or replace it.

Turn the key to on, but don't attempt to start. Wait 10 minutes with key in this position, and light should go out. Turn key to off position. Try to start.

1996 chevy cavalier alternator replacemant


There usually not hard to replace. Take off belt, disconnect connector and there should be a nut hold a wire on, take that off then it should only be 2 or 3 bolts holding it in place.

Everything turns on when key is turned, but engine doesnt turn, starter doesnt click, nothing...just recently replaced starter and alternator and nuetral switch (its a manual)..could it be the solenoid?


If you have verified that the battery has 12volts, and there is power 12V at the trigger wire on the solenoid with the key turned to start, likely the solenoid is bad...I'd question this though because the solenoid comes with the starter and therefore should be new. (defective?) If there's no power there, re-check what you replaced and also ignition switch.
