car   Air Bag Light On problem 2
Failure Date: 06/13/2014

My car has been having numerous airbag issues and electrical problems. The first issue with my airbags happened last year around this time. I took car to chevy service center and they told me they had to replace whole frontal airbag senor and other systems. In may of this year airbag light came on again. Took car to chevy service center and there were numerous fault codes particularly the passenger side airbag sensor. They told me that they believe there is a malfunction in the system but they were suggesting I replace the passenger airbag sensor. I asked gm to do a full system check on my airbag system but they refused. I could not afford the repairs so I did not have the issue fix. Also, I was not convinced that it would have solved the problem because they were not 100% sure since there were numerous fault codes. The next issue is hard to describe but when I am driving my car jerks and shakes and almost shuts down and starts back up at the same time. This happens whether I am standing by a light or fully in drive mode. I took car to shop but they could not diagnose issue because check engine light is not on and it does not happen all the time. Only when I drive my car for more than an 30 minutes to an hour.

Failure Date: 06/01/2014

Air bag light came on and stayed on. , dashboard clock and cd radio also went out. The cevrolet servicing dealer suggested that the service codes reflected a short in wiring and the dashboard has to be removed to check the wire harness for the short. They wanted to charge me $315 , manager continued to state also the sensor modual for the airbag may be defective. Why do they charge for diagnosis when their diagnosis measures cannot find the problem and want to charge another $315 for furthur diagnosis?I with th ive cheched with other Aveo owners and some have the same exact problem. I do believe there is a fault with this car. I do not know if the airbags will deploy if their is an accident with this car.

car   Air Bag Light On problem 6
Failure Date: 09/11/2013

Airbag light came on and has not gone off. I have had nothing but problems out of this vehicle. Mar 2010, I took the vehicle in to the dealer for making loud scrubbing noises when turning. I was told it was nothing. Oct 2010 it was electrical problems. I had 19,300 miles on the vehicle when the brake lights went out and check engine light was on. Oct 2012, it was electrical problems and the vehicle would not start at all. I had 30,300 miles on the vehicle and it cost 600. 00 in repairs. June 2013 ,the a/c went out. I had 34,000 miles on the vehicle and it cost 573. 00 to replace the compressor (first and only time I went to another mechanics shop). Sep 2013, the airbag light came on. Gm wants 100. 00 just to run a diagnostic to tell me why it's on. My goodness, as many times as I have brought the vehicle to gm haven't I paid enough in diagnostics? this is ridiculous! I am never buying anything with Chevrolet written on it again. I believe gm knows what is wrong with this vehicle. If I wasn't on a fixed income I would get rid of it.

car   Air Bag Light On problem 7
Failure Date: 08/14/2013

My 2008 chevy Aveo with approximately 27,000 miles recently showed the airbag light continually lit. I took it into the local chevy dealership and they said the dtc code was b2502 at a cost of $110 for diagnosing it. He cleared the code and the light is not lit anymore. He said he had seen this before and said the light might come back on and wanted me to order a clock/pps indicator for $87. 89 and with labor, shop costs,and tax would total $266. 15. Do all car manufactures use the same dtc codes? I told him I would take it as it is and see if the light comes on in the future. Does this make sense for this code?.

car   Air Bag Light On problem 9
Failure Date: 04/14/2013

I have a 2008 Aveo that I purchased from a Chevrolet dealership in russellville, ky. Since the 2nd day I owned it, it has been nothing but problems. Air bag sensors not working, have had this repaired three times. Yesterday the air bag light came on again. My biggest trouble has been with the throttle position sensor. Get a p2135 code that tells you to replace the entire throttle body. I did this ($300 part) did no good. The car has been in the shop for over 7 months in the 15 months I've owned the car. Computer has been "flashed" numerous times. Didn't work. Gm customer care asked me to take the car to and authorized Chevrolet repair shop. I did. After 2 trips there and a total of 6 weeks in the shop, they tell me they think the problem is with the ecm engine control module. This part has an 8 year, 80,000 mile warranty. I bought the car with 76,000 mile on it. The problem has been documented by the chevy dealership I purchased the car from for many thousands of miles prior to me purchasing the car. Gm refused to honor the warranty because the car now has 82,000 miles. This is the thing that gets me. When I bought this car, they knew I was buying it for a daughter in college. They knew the car had these problems and sold it to me anyways. I had to purchase another car for my daughter. I am currently driving the Aveo to and from work. The lights that are currently "on" are the check engine light, the air bag light, and I can not allow a passenger in the car because, when they sit in the passenger seat the air bag light that indicates that the passenger side air bag is now engaged does not go off.


 
car   Air Bag Light On problem 10
Failure Date: 08/01/2012

The driver airbag censor malfunctioned, and the airbag is no longer engaged, which is indicated by the driver air bag light remaining on while the engine is turned on. The dash light, passenger tail lamp and the passenger fog light all stopped working simultaneously. Passenger tail lamp doesn't work even after replacing the bulbs, which suggests there is an electrical issue.

car   Air Bag Light On problem 12
Failure Date: 08/04/2010

I own a 2008 chevy Aveo. Upon driving to work my airbag light came on for no reason and will not go off. I called my dealership and they advised me my airbag needs to be "serviced". Since my vehicle mileage is 38k and just out of the bumper to bumper warranty they refuse to guarantee me there will not be a fee for diagnosing and fixing the problem. I than called gm and they advised me to have the car diagnosed at a dealership and if there is a defect I would have to pay for the diagnosis and repair and they would reimburse me. This is insane! this is a safety feature just like a seatbelt and the maker should be responsible for safety features that are obviously defective!.

Failure Date: 11/29/2009

My sister recently cut her hand when she grabbed the inside door handle on my 2008 Chevrolet Aveo. When we looked closer at the handle, it appears to be separating at the top joined seams. It has a very sharp edge to it similar to the lid of a pull top can. I don't transport many people so I was not aware of it's condition. I'm glad that the incident did not involve a child because they could have sustained a serious cut. I have not had any wrecks or damage to my car to result in the door handle separating. I fell this is a serious enough situation to warrant reporting. I've also had problems with the airbag light consistently malfunctioning. It's been supposedly fixed twice. . But it still malfunctions.

Failure Date: 05/16/2008

The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Aveo. The contact stated that fumes leaked into the vehicle and he noticed moisture on all the windows. He activated the defroster, but the moisture remained. The dealer wiped black soot off of the interior windows and stated that the failure may have something to do with the environment, instead of being a manufacturer's defect. The manufacturer agreed with the dealer's environmental theory. The vehicle was also taken to the dealer twice because the air pressure sensor light was illuminating. The tires were filled with nitrogen, but the sensor light continued to illuminate. The contact was advised to keep restarting the engine so that the module would reset itself. When his wife was seated in the passenger seat, the air bag light also continued to illuminate. The current mileage was 1,937 and failure mileage was approximately 550.

The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Aveo. The contact stated that the air bag light illuminates occasionally when a passenger is seated in the passenger seat.

The vehicle has been taken to the repair shop three times regarding the air bag light. She stated that no shop has been able to give her a diagnosis or explanation for the air bag light failure.

The brake would function and the vehicle would stop. Updated.
