Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo
Yesterday I had my Chevy Aveo in again to find out why the lights flash. It starts when the weather gets cool 40 degrees. They reprogrammed the computer yesterday and he said it was working. This morning I warmed up the car and drove 2 blocks before it started again. When I started the car to come home they started flashing again. It didn't happen all summer. Evidently the dealership needs some help with this problem. I sure do.
I also had the same problem, But the problem lies in the switch the actual hold switch on my aveo there is a side entry way you can pop off the one on the left will give you access to the switch. what could of happen is theres is condensation in inside the switch. then when it gets cold it freezes causing the switch to malfunction. This could happen either by spilling something on the switch or using a cleaning solvent like armorall, YOU MUST BE CAREFULL WITH ANYTHING LIQUID NEAR THE HOLD SWITCH. Also the car going from warm when you drive then cold when you park it at night. My car was in warranty and remind you I came up with is the dealership had no idea what was wrong. they reseted the computer it worked for a week then was happening again. I have knoweldge in switches/wiring so i decided to check pot the switch and open it up and sure enough there was condensation took it to dealer told them to try a new switch works perfect and going on 5 months with out problems. Replacing the switch can solve pretty much every problem that is stated here i think. Also take a look at the wiring and connections for older aveos

You can take it to autozone they will check it for free and tell you what the problem is and which sensor it is ...that way a shop cant tell you you need other parts you dont need. hopes this helps.........

The engine light in my aveo kept flashing and then it would go off. Now it is on all the time. That just started yesterday afternoon. When I took it to AutoZone, their reader wouldn't connect to my car...just kept saying it was trying to communicate with the vehicle. I just sunk a lot of money into the car because my thermostat couple melted, burning a hole in the coolant hose & due to that, the water pump cracked. I got that all replaced, as well as the timing belt. Just got it back THREE days ago & this has now started. I'm extremely frustrated so if anyone has a solution to the engine light problem, or if it is a switch problem also, let me know.
