    I have the same problem.



    By accident I was able to get the key out....but only have the car gets cold. As a matter of fact the battery is dead. Maybe that's why I was able to get the key out. (lol)



    I sure could use a answer.



    GM products are turning into a 60 minutes issues.

I have a similar problem in my 2006 Aveo. When turning off the vehicle, the key will not come out completely unless I "nudge" the gear shifter slightly to the right; this allows the key to turn freely and come out. Similarly, when shifting out of park, I must nudge the shifter slightly to the right until I hear a click. Then I have to quickly push it further to the right in order to shift out of park. Apparently this sort of thing is a common problem in the 2005-06 model Aveo. While I haven't gotten mine fixed, I have researched some things you might try... first, I would look into the BTSI (brake transmission shift interlock) solenoid. Apparently it has been a common cause of this problem. Second, you might try removing the fuse for your radio... I read that one person that was able to do this as a temp. fix. Hope this helps.

When you turn off car key wont cume out


You have a problem with the shifter. Common on the Aveo's. There's a switch on the shifter that wears out. When put in 'Park' it releases the ignition to remove the key. When that switch screws up it's not releasing the ignition. Replace the shifter. I'm a Chevy mechanic.

2006 chevy aveo check engine light (code # p0315)


I took it in to a different mechanic and am told that the car will not "learn" the cps. It will clear the CEL but as soon as the key is put in the ignition it comes back on He suggested putting in the original crank sensor but that one is cracked so do I need to get an ac/delco or gm sensor instead of what I got from autozone or how do I get it to recognize the sensor we put in?

We did check the fuses and that is not the problem.

Need to jumpstart my 2006 hhr, key is stuck in ignition, how do I open hatch to get to battery


The ignition key will not come out of the ignition cylinder with a bad battery. There are jump post to the battery so you do not have to remove the battery cover to jump the car. Once you open the engine hood, look at the battery cover and look for the positive jump post, it will be marked and the ground will be anywhere you can ground the jumper cable in the engine bay. Once you have the engine running or you connected the jumper cables with the other car running, you can remove the key's from the ignition. Good luck and take care not to damage the pass lock system in your ignition lock.
