My daughters' brand new 2004 Aveo kept having dead batteries(we were on vacation). Finally someone noticed the brake lights were on and it was determined to be a problem in the gear shift, good luck! The engine thermostat is plastic and melted off causing fluids to get into the pistons. We argued and argued and finally Chevrolet picked up the bill for the engine being rebuilt. Then, the windshield cracked with no point of impact, cracked all the way around front window. The fuse keeps blowing on the power windows and now oil light is on and won't go off. Had new oil filter and oil change done. Hate this car!

Why is my 2009 chevrolet aveo brake lights not working


are you having any difficulty putting it into gear, if is auto trans? Had a problem with no brake lights,2004 Aveo, there is a plunger switch that engages when you depress the brake pedal. if you get on floorboard under the steering wheel area, depress the brake pedal you will see the switch the brake pedal should be engaging. It is simple to remove, take to your auto parts store, they should have one in stock. Good Luck

2007 chevy malibu, when brake peddle is engaged the brake lights go out but you remove you foot from the brake peddle the break lights come on and stay on untill you touch the brake peddle again, I am...


That sounds like a faulty brake light switch located down on the brake pedal lever under the dash, or a damaged wire at the wire connector to the brake light switch. Here are some images of what the brake light switch looks like to help assist you.

My 2004 checy aveo sometimes does not shift out of


These have a brake light switch that controls both the shift lock solenoid and the brake lamps, so chances are that if it is not a fuse then it is the brake light switch.

BRAKE LIGHTS AND SHIFT INTERLOCK NOT WORKING


Hello Joe...The Aveo has had it shares of problems, and this is one of them....NHTSA issued several bulletins on the 04 Aveo...this following is the one pertaining to the shift interlock.....

Make : CHEVROLET Model : AVEO Year : 2004
Manufacturer : GENERAL MOTORS CORP.
Service Bulletin Num : 070730007 Date of Bulletin: APR 01, 2007
NHTSA Item Number: 10022265
Component: POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Summary:
AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE/TRANSMISSION SHIFT LEVER MAY NOT SHIFT OUT OF PARK (REPLACE BRAKE TRANSAXLE SHIFT INTERLOCK (BTSI) SOLENOID). *KB

Take that bulletin number to your dealer and see if they can help.

Untill you can get it repaired heres a little tip for getting it out of park....There is a a little hole in front of their gearshift lever that can correct the problem, temporarily. It should say "brake interlock release" or something like that. With car running, put a key-size object into it and push down while moving the lever. It does not damage the transmission, it just releases the lock. (make sure your foot is on the brake)

Now for the brake light issue...do you have power at the switch you replaced? If so go to the relay and check there...if no power there it's probably a bad ground.

Also...you may or may not know, but the timing belts on these Aveos are prone to failure at aprox 50k ...these failures have caused severe engine damage.
Good luck...i hope the information i've provided you find useful.
Please time to rate me.

Rear brake lights wont work on our 2005 chevy aveo ????


It sounds like you should check for power at brake pedal switch. Hook up a test light to the switch and press the brake pedal. If the light does not go on and you have power in the wires to the switch then the switch should be replaced.
I hope this helps you out

2004 Chevrolet Aveo Brake lights not working


A couple of days ago my brake lights on my 2004 Chevy Aveo wouldn't work, so I attempted to remove the lamp covers to check the bulbs. Also, before this my shifter would get stuck in park and could only be released by pressing the unlock gadget next to the shifter. Back to the brakes...Well, you open the trunk and remove the two screws just like the manual said, but it was very hard to pull off. There's 2 prongs holding the other half of the light on. The lamp will come loose by prying it (very hard). You think the cover will break, but it'll come loose. The bulbs were all OK.

After much frustration and internet info, the STOP LAMP SWITCH, GM#96436331 ($9.30 at Chevy dealer), which is located under the dash and has contact with the brake pedal, was defective. Once replaced, both my brake lights AND SHIFTING problems were cured. So if the brake lights suddenly don't work or you have problems getting the vehicle out of park, check the switch by pushing the prong (end that has contact with brake) of the switch in and out. If it doesn't retract smoothly...that's the PROBLEM. Good Luck.
