SOURCE: hold light blinking, check engine light on, engine slows down

check tps sensor (throttle position sensor in backside of the throttle cable) and map sensor (manifold absolute pressure on front little 1 inch sensor with vacuum line) make sure there plugged in. the ecm (engine control module driver side inner fender) and tcm (transmission control module under dash) both need the data to know when to upshift and increase fuel/air. Otherwise the computer runs default values and guesses off of other sensors giving poor performance. also disconnect battery for 15 min. usually resets aveo service lights if you dont have a scanner.

P0128 - the thermostat may be stuck open or has anyone put a colder thermostat in the car,because once it starts to get cold it will throw a SES with a colder then stock thermostat. Replace the Thermostat should fix this problem.

PO700 is a code telling you there are codes in the TCM of some late model cars where the Transmission control module has been removed from the PCM the vehicles main computer , and basically it happens when the TCM has a issue within itself or the transmission that sets a code and it sends a request for the PCM to illuminate the SES or CHECK engine light. To get at the TCM codes requires in most cases the most up to date scanner software purchased after the cars model year and as of yet is still a little iffy. Standard OBD11 scanners will generally not be able to see these codes.

P1781 is set during engine start up when the ECM & TCM do not communicate properly during initial power up. It will only illuminate the service light if the condition occurs in 2 consecutive start cycles, but the DTC will be stored in the failure records after the first cycle.

Replace the Thermostat and go to a transmission shop that can read the DTC codes with a scanner and reset the ECM for clear the codes. Most Transmission shop will do that free of charge, if not turn the Ignition key's to the on position and and pull the ECM fuse out for 30 seconds and then place it back in. Turn the ignition keys to the off position for 10 seconds and then start the car, the engine may stall but let it. Just start the engine again, the ECM is just relearning the engine and go for a test drive. This will clear all the DTC history in the ECM like the day it cam off the assembly line. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer ay more question.

SOURCE: Check Engine light staying on in Chevy Aveo. Yes

Many things can cause this problem...unfortunately the only proven way to remidy this situation is to have your car scanned by a reputable mechanic with a diagonstic machine $40-$80. This will tell what exactly is causing the check engine light to come on, in the long run its much cheaper replacing whats wrong than trying to replace things that arnt wrong.

When was the alternator replaced? was it a remanufactured alternator? This is common on GM trucks, fluctuating voltage is caused by a faulty alternator voltage regulator. Have the alternator tested, strong possiblityits defective!!Hopefully this helps!!

Nicole; check the alternator belt, loose,worn, is it still there and on.
If battery is new and connections are good, and belt is good, probably a bad alternator. Alternator cost $125 to $200, labor $60-$120

2007 Chevy Aveo 23K miles Battery Light and Brake

you have an electrical problem, 562 is:
System Voltage Low(pasted from obd2 index, sorry for caps)
the battery light is not a battery light its a charge idiot lamp.
it means, the alternator can not charge the battery.
the light glowing means literally, the alterntator has shut down!
at that moment the battery begin is death spiral, that is its discharges until the EFI goes nuts, or spark goes weak
get a volt meter, connect it to the CIG light.
or go to any autostore in USA, cant speak for others.
and see the CIG lighter tester, its has LEDs to tell you
good bad or ugly, id never use this but id use a real DMM
connected to to the CIG light (i use this because its easy to get to)

now 12.6 vdc is battery charging.
start car and 13.3 to 15v is alternator is working. if not in this range
the (lower means shut down, higher means out of control (bad)

it is that simple, better cars have a voltmeter in the dash.
you have a blown fuse, to the ALT,
or bad wiring,
it can be just corroded battery cables. or ends.

keep in mind when the engine stalls, may ) lamps in the I.P cluster come one, this only signals you , the engine stalls.

look for coronation on all 4 paths from Alternator to battery.
that includes the Alterator Ground, (case)
keep and open mind, most alternators replaced are good.
this is because of 2 reasons, no meter. or doing the tests wrong.

i might add, that some batteries short a cell , every other speed bump, so just because it tests ok , now dont make it good.
is your battery 7 years old? (see date code on same) July 2006?

The alternator can be hard to diagnose, it can in fact shut down
at faults and this makes diagnosis hard. just knowing this one
fact , allows you to up the levels of testing.
also some cars the PCM controls the ALT .

so you do have a primary DC power distribution error.

Aveo battery and brake light came on

sound like alternator faulty or drive belt could be slipping due to broke drive belt tensioner,check make sure alternator wires not damaged or disconnected. with the engine idling check alternator voltage out put at battery with digital volt meter, should be 13.5 - 14.5 volts.if not alternator faulty.also check alternator fuse before replacing alternator.turn off radio first before disconnecting negative battery cable,to remove alternator have the auto parts store check it out alternator before buying a new one.reason i say turn off radio first if you dont you will lock it out when you disconnect the negative battery cable.

My chevy aveo 2006 model, after having problem with my alternator and replacing it with a new one, the engine lamp suddenly blinked. engine & other power sounds ok. What seem to be the problem

your engine lamp could have blinked for many reasons, as far as your alternator and battery system, make sure the battery is fully charged, when it is, you should get a reading of 12.4 volts, checking it with a volt meter doesn't necessarily mean thats charged fully as far as amps, you should have your battery LOAD tested to make sure it can fully charge and hold that charge, once its charged the alternator should keep it that way , if you test the posts with a meter while the motor is running you should get a reading of anywhere between 13.5 to 14.5 volts, when checking the battery , make sure all connections are clean and tight

2006 Chevrolet Aveo Check engine light comes on when under 3/4 tank fill it back up and the check engine light shuts off. What could be the problem?

I would first suspect that the gas cap is losing its seal, which happens to take about 1/4 tank of driving perhaps. The fuel tank, like most cars today, works on a closed system with a return and the air above the fuel needs to remain slightly pressurized.

The gas cap was a common problem on the 04 Aveo's; in fact the dealers were fixing them for free then. Tightenning the cap wont imediately turn of the light however because the computer needs to see the engine go through several drive cycle conditions before clearing.

Inpect the cap, the seal and the fuel neck. Perhaps cleaning the cap and seal area if necessary. Look for cracks in the fuel neck. If all looks good and this doesnt work try a new cap either aftermarket or from the dealer.

2006 Chevrolet Aveo engine dash light on/off intermittently

If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.
A solid light can mean anything.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain off. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially go on
