  1. Roxanne, first double check ALL your fuses and make sure ALL your fuses are good. You can do this by using an Automotive Fuse Tester and making sure all of your fuses are not blown. If all of your fuses are good, your 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier may have a factory amp that needs to be turned on by your after market radio. The car radio amplifier trigger wire has to be wired up to turn on your factory amplifier to output sound from your speakers. Double check that your 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier amp turn on wire is connected. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier stereo installation.

  2. I installed a new stereo in my 2000 Cavalier and can’t get rear speakers to work. Is there a factory amp for the rear speakers? The factory harness has 3 wires not connected. A gray wire and a black wire next to it on the old connector. There is also a purple wire that is next to the 12V supply wire. Could the purple wire be an output from the old stereo to an amp? If so, what would I connect it to on the new stereo to get it to function properly? The new stereo is a JVC KD-S26. The only wire not connected on it is labeled for a remote amp. Connecting it to the purple wire does nothing. My son insists the rear speakers worked before disconnecting the old stereo. I ran a seperate wire from new stereo out the door and into the trunk and verified one of the rear speakers was working. If the new stereo outputs are working and the speakers worked with the existing wiring from the old stereo, the only thing I can think of that could cause the problem would be an amp. I can’t find anything about a rear speaker amp on a 2000 Cavalier. Please help!!! My son is driving me crazy over this.

  3. I have a 2000 Cavalier with an factory am/fm cassette player, i want to purchase an factory am/fm/CD player……..will the wires on both radio be the same just to plug in and play.
