 The mechanical brake switch sticks in the open position. the driver depresses the brake pedal but the switch does not close and the brake lights do not come on. at least eight other complaints about this issue appear to be listed on the ntsb web site, however, many drivers appear to be unaware that the brake lights do not work and instead, they complain about a second symptom of the stuck switch: that they are unable to shift the car out of park. the owner's manual does describe a way for the driver to overcome the shift interlock problem but fails to mention that the brake lights may fail when this problem occurs. it appears that a number of people who encounter this problem continue to drive the car and rely on the shift interlock override without realizing that their brake lights are not working. i do not know if this same switch is used to disengage the cruise control, but it is common in other vehicles for the brake light switch to also disengage the cruise control. if that is the case with this model, then the stuck switch might also prevent the cruise control from disengaging when a driver taps the brakes.

 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.

 I bought this 2007 chevy aveo brand new with only 9 miles on it. after i put about 33,000 miles the a/c went out... on a brand new car! then the console with the shifters lights went out, blinkers would stop blinking and just stay green. i went to start my car at 10pm and it wouldn't start it acted like it was going to be then kept clicking. so i jumped it and drove around to charge the battery. i had the battery tested and they said eveything was fine. go back and the next morning it doesn't start again, all i got was a clicking sound when trying to start the car. i took it to a mechanic and he said that it could be the starter or the alternator and that i should pay to get them both tested and replaced if needed. there has got to be some type of a recall if i google it and everyone has the same electrical and engine problems. there is no way that a 3 year old car should be needing major a/c repairs, electrical, and engine repairs so soon. please please please look into this!!
