You need to read the code out of the computer. There are so many reasons why the car might not start. You need to get a code reader from your local auto parts store or ebay, amazon, etc. Once you read the code, only then can you make a plan what to replace to get the car running again.

How to fix 2005 chevy aveo sedan?

The cam sensor helps the computer determine when to fire the plugs and the injectors which will set the misfire code. Have a trusted mechanic check the cam sensor.

Chevy aveo repair

Clear the codes. See if it was just a one-time thing, or if it will do it again.
Next step, you will have to get another Cam Sensor, and then replace it.
It is located on the passenger side of the engine, close to the head. you will need to remobe the engine cover, then remove the hose going from Intake manifold to airbox as well as the airbox to free up some space. Then, take off the timing belt cover. this part is diffficult due to the many botls and limited space, but it can be done in about 20 minutes. your sensor is located just inbetween and below the two CAM gears.

Is not getting fuel to injectors has new cpu and crank sensor and a new cam sensor. motor is new .i was told when it died going down the hiway it needed a new engine, but this is what has been going on...

check the fuel pump and related electrical system and fuses. The aveo doesn't have a fuel filter but only a screen at the bottom of the pump. I had to replace the fuel pump in my 2004 aveo at 80k due to a clogged screen. Hope this helps

In my Chevy Optra 2004 the "Check Engine Light" came on. I took it to the dealership and they ran a diagonstic scan. Charged me $70.00 and told me that the Camshaft Positioning Sensor has to be replaced....

If having the light does not affect drivability then keep useing.When the position sensor packs it in completly it may not start but until then,happy motoring.[put a peice of black tape on the dash to make it less annoying.]

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.

Engine will die

There is a Communication problem between the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and the Engine control module. That is the bad news and is why it's shutting down the engine. 
The good news is i believe there is a TSB recall on the 2004 - 2007 chevy aveo for the P0700 problem so it should be covered under warranty. 
Believe the TSB# 05-06-01-030D
Good luck and hope this helps and hope it's not a bad ECM. Check the wire harness to the ECM and TCM, look for broken wire or the harness it self gone apart.
