So, what is your question?

I suspect you have a broken clutch drum or stripped splined shaft inside of the transmission. Even if the electronics failed you would still have 2nd, neutral, reverse, and park so the problem is most likely mechanical. Odds are pretty good that the transmission will need to be removed and repaired or replaced.

If you changed the switch you will have to go to the dealer and get the key coded. Ignition keys are coded to the specific computer and the key has to come from the dealer who knows the codes. This is what I had to do on my Camero. If this does not help call your Chevy dealer and ask them if they can code the right key.

Need to visit the Chevy dealer with those numbers. They will call Chevrolet with your six digit code and tell you what number to enter into the radio to unlock it. Usually a four digit number.

You may need more clarification which hose this in fact is...could be a main radiator to engine hose, flexible black rubber maybe 40-50mm diameter? Or this could be merely the connection from radiator to plastic coolant overflow/reservoir/filler tank? if so, this is generally a much thinner hose.Maybe a pic only highlighting exactly what you are aiming at, may settle this.

Have you checked the CV Axles? Since the noise goes away turning left to right. Another slim possibility may be the brake calipers but you said humming. And I would (assume- which means not always so) stuck calipers would only make the noise in one direction.

The ETS light comes on usually in responce to a cooling system problem in Cavaliers. The first thing to do is check your fuses. The Check Engine light always comes on when the ETS light comes on. You need to be concerned with this ETS system first. Usually it is your 30 amp fuse that needs to be replaced. On most cav's the fuse box us under your hood, on the right hand side. There are two fuses that are for the coolent system. Check these fuses first. If the fuse is blown, change it and the dash light should go out. If the fuse blows in a week or so again, then try to read the codes like the guys above say. When the fuse it out, the code reader is just going to say that you need to check your fuse. This is what happened in my car, and my mechanic said it was pretty common in these cars. Good luck.

Depends on the motor, but you should find it on the motor air intake piping near the MAF sensor and throttle body. Just disconnect the electrical plug on it and go from there.

the problem is in the mechanics of the wiper at the firewall (inside undr the vents) the connector to the wiper arm has come loose from the controlling arm (laymen's terms) you'll need to access the workings and re-connect the arm..the access panel is normally held on with a few screws.....make sure the repair will stay connected and is not worn out.. good luck to is about an hour fix...

I dont have a video but is real simple. A fuel injector is located at the head like a spart plug. You will need to remove some of the air filter housing and /or some of the speed pedal links depending of the model or kind of engine your cavalier have. The idea is to get access to a support that keep the injectors in place, to remove this long support you have to unscrew 2 torq bolt. After removing this plate to extract the injector just disconect the electronic connector and pull out the injector. Notice the angle of the injector before removing. I recomend to buy the kit of seal of the 4 injectors.
good luck

Check the electric fuel pump and /or verify the presure at the injectors.
good luck

lift your car and set it on large blocks so the tires will not touch the ground. be extra careful that the vehicle does not fall off blocks or touch the ground during testing. have someone accelerate your engine slowly while you listen for the rubbing sound location.
