The word HOLD is up near the clock on a 2004 Chevy Aveo. "HOLD" lights up. I'm not sure about the 2005 Aveo.

The HOLD LIGHT CAME ON AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. WHAT COULD THAT MEAN? It is a 2005 chev. aveo with 28,000 miles

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.

Well im guessing it an automatic sooo it think you need a new transmission bc i had a old nissan stanza and my tranny did the same thing and i pulled it out took it apart and saw that the internals were shot. Now being that the car is really new i would suggest bringing it back to were you bought it from or call to see if theres a warrenty that covers powertrain on your car. It may also be a sensor located on the transmission but im not to familiar with its design. But if its that new definitley try to get it to the dealer

2005 aveo starts off in 4th gear.

Sometimes particular clutch packs can fail and the computer won't set a code. The only time a code can be set is if a sensor actually "sees" a problem. Possibly in this case, the clutch pack can fail but the proper line pressures are still right because the front pump is supplying proper pressure and the servos are applying the clutches. Probably the cheapest way to determine your problem would be to drop the transmission pan and carefully catch the fluid in a container. Then, check the fluid and the inside of the transmission pan for clutch debris. This sounds like an amateur way to do it but if it were in my shop, that would be my first step in diagnosing the problem. Good luck!
