Difficulty moving shifter into reverse on 2005 chevy aveo

My stepdaughter has great difficulty shifting from park to reverse (reverse to drive, drive to park, etc., ok). according to her this happened before & that her brake lights were out at the same time (they are out now also). her mechanic told her he scanned for codes & an internal brake light code popped up. according to her the mechanic told her the replacement of the brake light switch (internal brake light switch?) corrected both problems. if that's the case now, where is this switch located & how difficult is it to replace. is access to it fairly easy & are special tools needed? also do i have to remove anything in the way to get to it & level of difficulty thanks,benny p.s. i think the engine is a 1.3 liter. the transmission is auto. i'm pretty sure only 1 engine & transmission was offered on this model.

SOURCE: Remove service brake system display from dashboard?

Check ABS system for codes. I have an '03 Silverado and have a faulty EBCM( Electronic Brake Control Module, "ABS module"). Can't reset anything. Only replacement of EBCM will fix it. Incidentally, if you have to replace it, you can check on Ebay for a rebuilt unit. You shouldn't have an issue with your "base" braking system though, if this is the case. ABS is electronically controlled and with or without it, your brakes will still function. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2005 malibu where is the brake light switch?

There isn't one.  This car has a "brake and throttle by wire" system and the brake light switch is inside of that.  You have a bad brake position sensor.  Figure $240 or so at a dealer.

SOURCE: 2003 S10 service light is on

Yes advanced auto or autozone can reset this light with a scan tool for nothing. You can also do this yourself if you disconnect the battery cables for 5 minutes then reconnect them start your vehicle and let it idle with everything off including the radio and fan blower. Let it idle for 2 to 3 minutes to reset the computer. Provided there are no fault with your car the light will be off and stay off. If not then there is a problem and you would have to have it checked once again with the light on. I hope this helps. Don.t forget to rate my answer, thanks.

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.
Please time to rate me.

My trail blazer will shift to park reverse and neutral but not to drive


Have someone check your motor mounts and your shift linkage for wear, binding, and or damage from car accident or from foreign object under the car.
Problem should be in one of those areas.

I cant shift from park to drive. I have to use a key to override the shifter. My 2007 chevy Aveo is a automatic


sounds like brake switch for shifter lock isnt working. UNDER BRAKE PEDAL there should be a cable that leads to the shifter in the mess of wires. make sure its fully connected. If not then unplug and reconnect that should fix if not then issue is at shifter end

Chevy aveo 2007 5door, shift handle feels lose, car goes


if its a 5 speed, yes the shifting is loser than normal cars. the reverse is all jacked up.. if its anything like my 06 aveo when you shift into reverse you have to lift the little circle thing on your shifter up ad act like your putting it into first.. If it grinds try doing it slower. I HATE this transmission. Chevy did a horrible job on picking it. I always grind reverse no matter what

What needs to be replaced if 2005 chevy aveo automatic will not shift out of park


Check shift linkage. Lingage could be binding. Is the shifter on the column? If it is it could be the shifting tube. ( Check lingage on column and make sure it is working properly )

My chevy aveo won't go into gear. The gear shift says you are in Drive but the car acts as if it is in park


Most likely the shifter cable broke or became disconnected. Have someone shift the car (engine off, parking brake on) while someone else watches the transmisssion linkage to see if it moves. If it does move there is an internal transmission problem if it doesn't it is just a problem with the cable.

2006 Altima doesn't shift into reverse


The problem that I could see is the transmission/shift solenoid. The solenoid thing is located inside the transmission. The repair should run $200-$250 or there abouts. If you don't fix it quickly though, you will wreck the transmission and you don't want to know how much that costs!

You may also contact the manufacturer for second opinion.

Hope this helps and have a great evening!
