Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo

3 Answers

Car won't start (battery issues)

How am I supposed to get the alternator wiring connector off the alternator on a 2005 chevy aveo? I can't see it and don't want to break the stupid thing. The car clicks when trying to start it and won't fire up, but will if jumped. Runs no problem after jumped, but after shut off for a few minutes it won't start again. Is it the battery or the alternator?

    this is true. I'm great at tearing things apart and putting them together, just **** at diagnosing. Thanks

    Any tips on how to remove the alternator? I know to remove the airbox etc, i just can't see the connector clip to figure out how to remove it, and how am i supposed to be able to get to the belt tensioner?

You should have a voltmeter, measure the voltage across the battery terminal when the engine running the reading should be around 14Volts.If 14 volts is there your Alternator is good.

Probably the battery. Car wouldn't run if the alternator didn't work, it'd run until the battery drained and then stop.

Try this jump start the car one dark night the lights should be brighter with the engine running than switched of on dim or high beam. if not it is your alt. if the lights do go brighter then it is your battery. it could be faulty. but to be on the save side leave on side on the terminals of over night when charged.

How to change the alternator on a 2005 chevrolet aveo


Pretty simple really, unhook your battery to start with, then undo the electrical connectors, take off the serpentine belt, and unbolt the alternator. Install the new one in reverse.

Your alternator is not charging the Battery, I would replace the battery with a new gel battery and have the alternator checked, bets on your battery just died.

2007 Chevy Aveo Sedan alternator issue? Could it be something like a fuse? Battery is new.


If the alternator is good and the battery is not being charged, yes there is a fuse or fuseable link between the alternator and battery.
If the problem comes and goes, like you can drive the car for several days then it acts up, I would look for a wiring problem.

battery may be shot, take it to a local parts store for free testing. if it's not that then it may be a charging issue or a short somewhere.
