Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Chevrolet Lacetti and the engine light (MIL light) is on. I had this problem 2 years ago and brought it back to the garage where I bought it. Car was stalling & it was like there was a drag on the car. It took them 6 weeks to find out what was wrong. It was the Catalytic Converter & ERG valve. Both were replaced at a cost of €900. Luckily for me the car was still under warranty. The light has come back on again but no drag on the car like before. The car is driving fine. I am just wondering if the cat converter or erg valve is blocked and this is the reason. Any help or thought appreciated

My airbag warning light is permanantly on


Cluster warning lights

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System, MIL Malfunction Indicator Lamp, CEL Check Engine Light.

Check engine light on


I worked in an auto garage many years ago and learned at that time the check engine light meant nothing other than to drum up business. I learned to shut it off in my truck. I have heard recently it doesn't seem to mean much. An example, a friend brought her vehicle in and they checked the check engine light on the computer. The computer said the vehicle was misfiring. Duh I think everyone knew that. So it shows the computer was of no help. I wouldn't trust it.

Check engine ligth comes on and stays on. The car is running a little rough now too. Both problems started this morning.We had our mechanic do a tune-up on the car about a year ago.


When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

My 2005 Impala started to hesitate a little bit 2 wks ago. It got a worse a couple of days ago and then it cut off when I pulled in my garage. I cranked it right back up and assumed all was well. But later...


There is a $30.00 coolant sensor which sends messages to the computer. If this sensor is not working it can cause a whole lot of different problems.The sensor may think the internal engine
temperature is to hot and cause the engine to stall or die. I'm going through the same thing and I am having mine changed this Wed. I talked to 2 mechanics and they said this causes all kinds of problems. I'm having my oil changed and the sensor takes about 10 min to change. So, for $30.00 plus installation I hope my problem is over.

2 years ago had check engine light & VSC come on. Brought in & had a sensor replaced along w/ tires ($1K on sensor & labor alone). They said both lights should go off. VSC has remained on...


Strange that they didn't reset the CEL/VSC lights for you. My understanding is that it should clear over time, so it sounds like you may still have an issue that's triggering the light. The most common cause that I have heard is the vacuum hose to the air filter box being left off (or knocked off). You might want to ask a local auto parts stores to read the codes and reset the DTC. Many will do this for free (at least many of the large national chains will). If they reset the code, and the problem has not been resolved, the VSC light will come back on. Hopefully it's just the vacuum hose that attaches to the air filter box.

Lacetti Chevrolet. Malfunction Indicator light is on.


It may be the same problem as my 56 plate Lacetti. The yellow malfunction light came on two weeks ago and two days ago, both times shortly after filling up with petrol to the brim, and I suspect it is the petrol sensor as I only clicked the petrol cap once after fitting it back - the handbook says click it several times. The yellow light also came on yesterday after taking the car a short journey so it is likely that the sensor is still picking up a small escape of petrol, but the car has been fine today with no light appearing now that the fuel level has dropped a bit. Like you, I have not noticed any drop in power with the light on.
