2005 Chevrolet Aveo Problems

Ignition Key Stuck Due to Failed Shifter

The automatic transmission shifter may fail causing the ignition key to become stuck in the ignition lock cylinder.

Speedometer Not Working and/or Code P0722 Stored in PCM

The speedometer may stop functioning with code P0722 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). This may be caused by a worn speedometer gear due to coolant contamination of the transmission fluid. If contamination is found the radiator is most likely at fault. The transmission should also be thoroughly inspected and repaired or replaced as required.

Noise From Rear Wheel Bearings

One or both rear wheel bearings may develop an abnormal noise and require replacement.
