SOURCE: 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.

You need to replace your BTSI (brake transaxle shift interlock) solenoid. I have replaced MANY and it is the problem 99% of the time. The only other thing it could be is your BTSI fuse so check it first. All you have to do is remove the shifter assembly and install a new BTSI solenoid (couple of screws and two connector terminals) and you will be driving in no time. Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: I have a 2008 chevy

It could be a few things....I just had this same problem with my 2008 chevy aveo this week. Also, my check engine light came on the very next day after the gear shifter started locking. I called Bob Bell and they told me that the gear shifter locking is probably due to a sensor going bad that tells your car it is in park. However, after taking my car to my brother-in-law (who has very LITTLe knowledge about repairing cars), we discovered that my brake lights were not working either. He told me that is why my check engine light is on - because it is extremely dangerous to drive without brake lights. We checked the fuses to make sure there was no fuse blown and they were all just fine. So bottom line, the problem was that there is a brake switch under your dash board where your brake is. My switch keeps sticking and will probably eventually need to be replaced. When the switch works properly, my brake lights work fine, my gear shifter unlocks and my check engine light goes out. Not sure how much it is to fix this switch if that is the problem but I hope it helps!

2004 aveo auto trans. will not shift into 4th gear after an eng. change


Sometime s its kind of hard to tell for sure with and automatic if it has shifted into high gear .You say new engine installed check the linkages and all shift related parts if it shifted before and nothing was changed it should shift now
Also take a look at the interlock switch on the side of the transmission it is derectly linked to to the shift lever on the coloum

My 2007 chev aveo wont start and cant move gear shift


most cars the brake light switch has to work properly for it to come out of gear and start properly. check this switch! Also First check to see if you have brake lights (if not the switch may have failed) secondly when with the ignition key on when you press the brake pedal do you hear a click from the area of the gear shift lever each time you press the brake pedal? If not the control module, wiring or solenoid may have a problem. First check all your fuses! Hope this helps, Good-Day!

I'm replacing the shift solenoid in my 2004 Buick Rendezvous but I can't find any diagrams showing the location or how to change it out. Can you please help?


WHen you refer to the shift solenoid, are you meaning the solenoid that locks and unlocks the shift lever? If so, before you change this, check if your brake lights are working! A common fault for this solenoid to not work is either a blown fuse or failed brake light switch- the solenoid is activated by you pushing the brake pedal which sends its signal from the switch!

I hope this helps? Good luck!

2004 Chev Aveo not shifting into 4th gear


Out of the blue my aveo flashes Hold and won't go into fourth. Disconnected the battery to clear the code and it shifts fine until the car goes through a cycle. I'm sure it's a some low qual Korean sensor/solenoid. Overall, this is has been a great econobox reminiscent of my 1989 Honda Civic. I've replaced most of the sensors with NON -Korean replacements and really haven't had many issues. So when I find the offending solenoid/sensor I will post it here.

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.

Can't get my car out of park, have to use the shift override button


The shift lock solenoid works in conjuntion with the brake pedal switch. Try pushing down on the brake pedal a little harder than normal and see if you can shift it out of park.
If that does not work, the solenoid or electrical circuit to the solenoid has failed.
It could be as simple as a loose electrical connection at the solenoid at the shifter.
Let me know and we can go from there.

Cannot remove key from ignition


I have a similar problem in my 2006 Aveo. When turning off the vehicle, the key will not come out completely unless I "nudge" the gear shifter slightly to the right; this allows the key to turn freely and come out. Similarly, when shifting out of park, I must nudge the shifter slightly to the right until I hear a click. Then I have to quickly push it further to the right in order to shift out of park. Apparently this sort of thing is a common problem in the 2005-06 model Aveo. While I haven't gotten mine fixed, I have researched some things you might try... first, I would look into the BTSI (brake transmission shift interlock) solenoid. Apparently it has been a common cause of this problem. Second, you might try removing the fuse for your radio... I read that one person that was able to do this as a temp. fix. Hope this helps.
