There is a hold button on the shifter or the console. When activated the transmission is locked into the selected gear and the hold light will come on.

An example is putting the transmission in 4th gear, pushing the hold button, and taking off in the snow. Wheel slip would be limited.

You will need the check engine light code read with a scanner and diagnosed.

2005 chev. Aveo will not shift into overdrive. What could it be?


Due to the age of the vehicle, It is due for a Transmission filter and fluid change. It should have been done at 80,000 miles. Perform an OBDII scan of the stored fault history and look for a speed sensor or torque converter lock-up solenoid fault. The lock-up solenoid can be accessed while the trans pan is off for the filter service

My 2009 chev aveo has a hold button. the hold light on the dash is flashing. the book says take it in to fix. what can it be?


I have a 2009 Chevy Aveo. The hold light has come on two times since I have owned the vehicle. The first time at about 37,000 (just out of warranty)the vehicle started running very poorly. the check engine light came on as well as the hold light blinking. At first I thought it was a transmission problem, It was NOT. The problem with this gem of a car is that the spark plugs need to be replaced by 35,000 miles. The check engine light was due to the ignition coil pack being bad (cylinder 3) All four need to be replaced at once. After replacing the coil pack and plugs the check engine light went out and the hold light went out. This was an extremely easy repair. I walked my 13 year old daughter through the repair.


The second time the hold light went on was about a week ago. I now have about 52,000 miles. The light came on for no apparent reason. The only unusual thing that happened was that i accidentally spun the tires in the rain just before the light came on. The owners manual will tell you to bring it in asap because there could be serious problems. I couldn't believe i was having another major problem (there was no check engine light on this time) My guess was that the spinning of the tires could have had something to do with causing the hold light to go on and blink. What i did was disconnect the battery over night in an attempt to reset the light. It worked, i have not seen the light come back on in over a week. I drive about 50 miles a day on the highway as well as stop and go traffic. Ill call that a win.


These lights come on for a reason, if the light comes back on i will be planning on taking it in to a transmission specialist. I am not trying to say you should ignore your lights but sometimes a little effort before taking it into your mechanic can save you a bunch of money. I just wanted to share what i did with you all. Also you can have your check engine codes read my many auto part stores usually at no charge.


I would never buy another Aveo or recommend one to anyone. In my opinion they are poorly manufactured vehicles. I guess i should have guessed that any vehicle with a 3 year 36k mile warranty has such a short warranty for a reason! I hope i could help someone with my experience.

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.

Something that might sound really easy, but please check your gas cap, make sure its on real tight or the rubber seal is still good,if not, get a replacement before you try and get any mechanics to touch your car. It might save your big bucks! All the best and drive safe. Hollywood Harv

2005 chevy aveo with 49,000+ miles just saw a lit-up engine (outline) come on... just to the left of the digital clock. Does this mean it's due for service, or is it something seriously wrong? Thanks --


This could be as simple as a hose leak or leaving your gas cap off. Go to your local auto mechanic, (i use jiffy lube, the're cheap) and have them hook it up to the macjine and it will read the code to tell you what the problem is.

Engine light


I doubt the gas cap is related to the light, though hopefully you can get a replacement for it because it can be dangerous. As for the check engine light I'm not sure what it could be. Is the car running making noises, does it stall?? If there are no obvious symptoms, you might need to take it to a mechanic so they can read the error message from the cars computer and determine where th eproblem is.
