Hello. this is caused by a bad fuel level sender in the fuel tank. you will need to drop the fuel tank and replace the sending unit

    This is a common problem with Chevy Cavalier and has nothing to do with the fuel tank sending unit. The problem is the instrument cluster itself, which must be repaired or replaced.

2003 chevy cavalier gauges quit working


Most likely the plug that goes into the cluster. Remove it and just plug it back in. I've done too many to count that would fix this problem. If all the gauges dieid.

Why would I get a gas fumes smell when car is sitting idle or just been shut off. Cannot find any leaks in gas tank or lines


gas is a very high evaporative liquid..fumes extremely strong..if overfull it will smell..and if emissions equipment has issues it will smell also.. when the engine gets hot, any gas present will vent off until the engine cools..thats the fuels evaporative nature..still keep an eye out for issues..

I have a 2003 cavalier;and the horn doesn;t work . ineed help taken the steering wheel off to check wireing


Before i took the steering wheel off i would locate the horn itself and unplug it and run a straight wire from each battery post and touch one wire to each contacter on the horn to make sure the horns not bad itself. But to take the steering wheel off you have to unbolt the airbag from the back remove it and then you should be able to check the horn contacter without pulling the steering wheel.

The instrument cluster on my 2003 Chevy Cavalier has been gradualy going out over the past year. first the temp gauge stopped working, then the speedo would read higher than actual speed and now it is dead...


I can't understand how the bad cluster would prevent you from fueling. The instrument cluster can be repaired. Look up specmo.com . I had mine repaired there. Quick turnaround. Previous to using Specmo, I tried Two parts from salvage yard and both turned out to be bad. Dealer wanted about $500 to do the repair. I did removal and install, Specmo repaired my cluster for around $125.

My gas and temp gauge doesnt work. When i turn on the car they spin all the way around. i never know how much gas i have.


This is common on the 03-05 Cavalier instrument clusters, it's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and can be fixed. Check out this site for more on how to get it repaired - Cavalier gas gauge broken

Gauges not working properly


Hello, Last year General Motors lost a lawsuit about the instrument panels in 2002 to 2005 trucks. The following website contains all the information about this lawsuit settlement.
http://www.speedometersettlement.com/
This impacts the entire gauge cluster in your vehicle.
I have the same year and model as yours and my speedo is never accurate and the tach always read 6000.
The issue is the metal bearings that the gauge meter movements use. The bearings are getting dry which impedes the meter movement.
