Ignition Problems of Chevrolet Aveo
Chevrolet Aveo owners have reported 7 problems related to ignition (under the electrical system category).
#1 - Ignition problem of the 2007 Chevrolet Aveo
The car involved is a 2007 Chevrolet Aveo. The car is having electrical problems. Started with the headlight going out on the drivers side, then the shifter started getting stuck in park. Later the dash board lights went out, along with all the gauges. Now my tail and brake lights are no longer working and when I turn off the car, the key gets stuck in the ignition and cant be removed. All this happened over a 3 day period. I took it to chevy and after 2 hours, they stated they could not identify the problem. They wanted to charge me eight additional hours of diagnostic fee at a rate of $109/hr to try and find what the problem is. I took it to another mechanic who diagnosed a problem with the fuse box. After looking online I see that this problem is common amongst hundreds of customers with Aveos from 2005 up to 2009. I contacted gm and they took the stance that their technicians will have to be the ones to find the problem and they will not cover the diagnostic fee; even though I already paid the chevy dealership for 2 hours of diagnostics. At this point, I am lost because gm will not intervene and I truly trust the chevy dealership. This problem occurred on Friday, December 10, 2010.

#2 - Ignition problem of the 2005 Chevrolet Aveo
The vehicle involved is a 2005 Chevrolet Aveo. On Sunday evening I attempted to put my 2005 chevy Aveo into drive after putting my key in the ignition and starting the vehicle but the shifter was stuck in park. The Aveo has a feature called the "shift lock release" which is a hole on the shifter console you can put a screwdriver or other tool into to release the shifter into drive in these situations. I was able to put the car in drive and make it home safely after using the shift lock release but when I got home I realized my key was stuck in the ignition. My car sat unlocked overnight because I could not get the key out. On Monday I called my local gm dealership in salem, OH and they stated they would not be able to take a look at my car until Tuesday. I spent the entire day researching online and found many customers who have experienced this same issue with the Aveo. Later on in the evening I realized my brake lights weren't working but there was not a blown fuse or switch. I tested both of the brake lights and they were still good. On Tuesday I took my car to the dealership and it cost me $80 for the mechanic to tell me the shifter is bad, which I already knew. They also stated it would be $300 to repair the shifter. I strongly believe the failure of the brake lights, the shifter and the ignition are tied together and should be replaced by gm at no cost to me. My vehicle is sitting unattended with the key in it, which runs the risk of it being stolen. Not to mention when I am driving I have no brake lights to alert the other drivers I am slowing down or stopping which could cause an accident. Each time I attempt to put the car in drive I have to insert something into the shift lock release to shift the car and this has been going on since Sunday. It was Sun., Nov. 15, 2009 when this ignition issue happened.

The car involved is a 2004 Chevrolet Aveo. Cd player gets too hot. It has melted a cd. I run it for 15 minutes and you can't even touch the face of it or the cd itself.
