Thank you for the schematics. I checked all components, nothing seemed to be a problem. However, I ran across another forum answer. Believe me, I scoured every possible site (wore out my search engine lol). The grounding cable that attaches to the plate holding the battery was corroded at the point of connection to the plate. We removed the battery, cleaned it up, and zowie! We had dome lights, chimes and a bottle of champagne!
Thinking back, it made sense. My friend mentioned that her windshield washer fluid wasn't coming out even though she just filled it. We saw that the battery had shifted, battery acid leaked on the hose and ate it thru. We patched it up, tightened down the battery, cleaned the terminals. Within a couple of days, the lights went out in Cavalier.
Just wanted to post this one, since it was so hard to track down my answer. Thanks!
