Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo

3 Answers

Engine light Hi, my name is Sandy! I just bought a used 2005 Chevy Aveo on Sunday and the engine stays on but now it is blinking, how can I fix it? And the gas cap is real loose and it doesn't tighten, could this be the problem, maybe I need a new one?

    Thanks, yea I have a scheduled appointmeant, guess I am going to a dealer to get the gas cap. No, don't hear any noises.

    I took my 2005 (used) Chevy Aveo in to have the engine light checked. Before taking it in, I checked the gas cap as the manual suggested but this did not solve the problem. The technician said the sensor was defective and the exhaust system was working fine. Since then the engine light has gone on and off intermittently. Interestingly, this started with the clock not keeping time, then the engine light came on. Is it possible these two problems are related?

Ok, this is a big problem, that you will have almost everyone you know trying to figure out. It is the PCM (the brains) of the car. My aveo had the same issue. I hope that your car is under 80000 miles, if so you are still covered under warranty. Dont wait to fix this problem.

I have a 2005 Chevy Aveo and I have taken it in twice for the check engine light being on, both times the gas cap was not on tight enough. That could be it, but if the gas cap does not tighten, then you should take it in.

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.

Ignition modules fail quite often causing all sorts of hard to find faults. Parts stores can test these so start there. Have you read the codes set? That may give a clue.

Did the mechanic scan the computer for trouble codes? There must be codes there to give us a place to start looking for the problem.

Engine light is on steady not blinking in 2005 chevy aveo


There is a 'hard' code stored in the computer which can seriously adversely affect engine performance. Have a parts store scan the code for free, or buy and OBD-II Scanner ($98 or so plus tax at Walmart) of your own which can tell you in plain English what system is giving your car engine trouble.

2005 chevy aveo brake light comes on when i shift... why?


your brake fluid is low. I have a 2005 aveo that i took to dealer under warranty and told them the clutch didn't feel right and the brake light kept coming on. they told me they have not seen either issue i complained about charged me 700 dollars in labor and rental fees and sent me on my way. I then proceeded to take it to the used car dealership i bought it from and they bled the clutch and said they got alot of air out when chevy told me they didnt get any. Anyway about 3 weeks later the light was on steady and the clutch began acting funny again. I bled the clutch myself this time and didnt check the fluid level or i would have caught the next dangerous part. On the 2005 chevy aveo hatch back i have with a 1.6 5 speed shares one reservoir for brake and clutch fluid. I was driving along one day down a 12% grade about 2 mile long stretch and my brakes failed. I filled the brake fluid reservoir at first chance i got considering my arm was sore from operating the hand brake for 6 miles or so. the light went out. It will probably come back on as did mine. the leak in my system was a check valve under the brake master cylinder. be careful until you get to fixing it.

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.

Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

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.
