Power Window Motors May Fail From Overheating

A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.

Turn Signal Switch May Fail and Cause Signals Not To Work

The turn signal switch in the steering column may fail causing the turn signals not to work on one or both sides.

Check Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue

Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.

2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Recalls

Brake Lights and Turn Signals May Not Work

The brake lights and rear turn signals may stop working due to insufficient contact between the socket and bulb. Inoperative tail lamps may not communicate the driver's intentions, increasing the risk of a crash. If both tail lamps become inoperative, the cruise control will not engage. Dealers will inspect the rear lamp bulb socket assemblies and apply grease or replace them if needed. The recall began January 18, 2005. The GM recall number 04083.
