Question about 2008 Chevy Aveo - 5-door hatchback, with spoiler - Evolution 4 Car Cover

1 Answer

Check engine light will NOT come on

The check engine light will not come on when the key is turned, but the engine isn't started. It will not pass emissions without that light coming on. The light is located in the dash instrument cluster (shows the clock, battery, airbag, door ajar lights). How can this be fixed? What is the part number if anyone knows? How much should it cost to fix?

It could just be a bulb or it could have been unplugged by the last owner or dealership to sell it

    I've had it for about five years - and it has always passed emissions before. there is no bulb to replace perse' it is a circuit board with welded pieces. Thanks though.

Car failed inspection,bulb was gone for check engine light. put new bulb in,has voltage but the Check Engine light on dash wont come on.


Probably won't pass. The light MUST come on when key is turned to on, or else something is wrong-maybe the engine computer or maybe the wire from pcm to the diagnostic connector or to the dash.
Now I see you say the bulb has voltage? May need to look into possible fault with the pcm.

I have a 98 monte carlo 3.1 auto trans. when i turn the key to start, the security light flashes and it does nothing


Have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . I suspect the problem is with the tdm module or the ignition switch ???? Assuming will only get you into trouble . If the PCM - engine computer does not see the right coded meassage from the TDM it won't turn on the fuel injectors or it will cut them off in two seconds . .

Ignition Key With Wrong Resistor Pellet Code is Used To Start Engine
The theft deterrent module performs one of the two following actions when you attempt to start the vehicle with a wrong ignition key:
• There are 15 PASS-Key® II resistance ranges. The PASS-Key® II resistance may be one of the 14 valid but incorrect PASS-Key® II resistance ranges. The theft deterrent module will perform the following actions when you attempt to start the vehicle (if the condition is present during an engine start attempt or for 1 second any time after the engine has started):
• Turns on the SECURITY indicator
• Sends a password to the PCM through the fuel enable signal circuit
• The password disables fuel delivery to the engine.
• Disables the theft deterrent relay, which disables the starter circuit
• Disables sampling of the PASS-Key® II resistance for 3 minutes
• The 3 minute time period is called the shut-down period.
• Disconnecting the battery will not clear the timer sequence. The timer sequence will resume when battery power is restored.
• Inserting the proper key during the vehicle shut-down period will not start the engine. The engine will not start until the shut-down period has elapsed.
• After the shut-down period, the engine will start if the correct ignition key resistor pellet is used.
• The PASS-Key® II resistance may be correct and allow the engine to start. Later during the same ignition cycle, the PASS-Key® II resistance may be one of the 14 valid but incorrect resistance ranges. The theft deterrent module will perform the following actions:
• Enters the fail-enable mode
• Turns ON the SECURITY indicator
• Sends a password to the PCM through the fuel enable signal circuit when more attempts to start the engine occur
• The password allows the fuel enable circuit to deliver fuel to the engine.
• Enables the theft deterrent relay, which also enables the starter circuit.

Ignition Key With Correct Resistor Pellet Code is Used To Start Engine
The theft deterrent module performs the following actions when the correct ignition key is used in order to start the vehicle:
• Enables the theft deterrent relay. The theft deterrent relay enables the starter unit.
• Sends a password to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) through the fuel enable signal circuit. As a result, the PCM allows fuel delivery to the engine.

Whe i turn key the ignition lights come on but when i turn it again to start it the engin dose not turn over you get no sound from under the bonnet


It sounds like your battery is dead. The lights don't take much power to come on, but as soon as you turn the key to start the engine the starter doesn't have enough power to turn over. Take your battery to a Autozone or similar and have the battery load tested and tested for bad cells. You can also check the voltage level of the battery although this isn't a clear indicator of a bad battery unless it is below 12 volts. If it shows around 12 volts, have the battery tested. If the battery checks out, have your starter tested.

Car ran fine put gas in it came home shut it off went to leave and it wont start


Does the engine turn over? If it does, then check to see if the check engine light comes on when you turn the key to the on position. If it doesn't, then the PCM is not receiving power. Check the orange power wire usually located by the battery to make sure it isn't damaged. Repair if necessary. If the check engine light comes on when the key is turned to on then crank the engine while observing the light. Does it go out while cranking? If it doesn't, then a problem with the crank sensor signal is indicated. If it does go out then the problem might be fuel related. Disconnect the air cleaner hose to the throttle body. Have someone crank the engine over while opening the throttle slightly. Spray starting fluid into the engine to see if it tries to start. If it does then a fuel related problem is indicated.
CAUTION : Wear safety glasses during this procedure. Be careful around moving engine parts.

Need my Liberty to pass smog I recently had codes po445 and po442, will this be a problem for passing smog if check engine light isn't on? Not sure if problem was resolved with new gas cap.


if your check engine light isn't on, they will still hook up a diagnostic code tester to your vehicle to see if the computer has picked up any problems, if the computer has picked up a problem, and you fixed the problem, then you can have the code removed from the system, with a diagnostic code tester.

In my 2000 chevy camaro my security light is on and my car wont start what process do i need to do to get it running?


Your vehicle is equipped with the PASS-Key II (Personalized Automotive Security System) theft-deterrent system.
PASS-Key II is a passive theft-deterrent system. It works when you insert or remove the key from the ignition.
PASS-Key II uses a resistor pellet in the ignition key that matches a decoder in your vehicle. When the PASS-Key II system senses that someone is using the wrong key, it shuts down the vehicle's starter and fuel systems. For about three minutes, the starter won't
work and fuel won't go to the engine. If someone tries to start your vehicle again or uses another key during this time, the vehicle will not start. This discourages someone from randomly trying different keys with different resistor pellets in an attempt to make a match.

The ignition key must be clean and dry before it's inserted in the ignition or the engine may not start. If the engine does not start and the SECURITY light stays on when you try to start the vehicle, the key may be dirty or wet. Turn the ignition off.

Clean and dry the key. Wait about three minutes and try again. The SECURITY light may remain on during this time. If the starter still won't work, and the key appears to be clean and dry, wait about three minutes and try another ignition key. At this time, you may also want to check the fuses (see "Fuses and Circuit Breakers" in the Index). If the starter won't work with the other key, your vehicle needs service. If your vehicle does start, the first ignition key may be faulty. See your dealer or a locksmith who can service the PASS-Key II.

If you accidentally use a key that has a damaged or missing resistor pellet, the starter won't work. The SECURITY light will flash. But you don't have to wait three minutes before trying another ignition key.

See your dealer or a locksmith who can service the PASS-Key II to have a new key made.

If you're ever driving and the SECURITY light comes on and stays on, you will be able to restart your engine if you turn it off. Your PASS-Key II system, however, is not working properly and must be serviced by your dealer. Your vehicle is not protected by the PASS-Key II system. If you lose or damage a PASS-Key II ignition key, see your dealer or a locksmith who can service PASS-Key II to have a new key made. In an emergency, call the Chevrolet Roadside Assistance Center at 1-800-CHEV-USA or 1-800-243-8872 (In Canada call 1-800-268-6800).
