G'day all, first off i would like to say my wife purchased in march 06 a Holden Barina, i think it's your version of a 2007 ls Aveo sedan, she loves it and i have now found out it badged a Holden Barina, Daewoo Gentra & now a Chevy Aveo, our aussie version of this great little car does not come with a lot of the accessories that you get in America and i was hoping that someone on this forum would be kind enough to track down a parts supplier for 1.The driving lights and surrounds in the front bar, 2. the rear spoiler for the sedan, any rtesponse would be greatly appreciated as these add ons would make her little sexy car even sexier. Cheers all,

I can't say off hand though there have been other website listed in the Aveo forums. Did you look at all the Aveo topics listed. Also you can do a google.com search for Aveo parts/accessories and see what comes up.

Thanks for that poncho167, didn't have any luck with the google search, if you know the contact details of a chevy dealer in the states i can contact them direct, just need to find a dealer that will ship internationly, Your 2007/8 Aveo seems to be to new to be able to find any parts for from auto stores online so i think a New car dealer that sells them should be able to get parts for them. If anyone else reading this forum can assist with a contact please do.

My Aveo Sedan started doing the same battery and parking brake lights turning on while driving. Took it in the first time and of course the lights didn't come on. I was taking it in for servicing(Oil-change, tire-rotation, etc.) when the lights came on again as I pulled it into the dealership. They took a look and found that the alternator shorted out. It'll be in the shop overnight while they order the alternator.

Dec 20, 2007 (5:07 pm)
I have a 2007 Aveo Hatchback that I have adored from the day I purchased it. Unfortunately, some minor things have happened since ownership that are causing me to suspect that I may have an electrical issue. Here is an outline of various events.
1. When we bought the vehicle the dome light flickered and had to be replaced;
2. Alarm went a bit wacky and at one point reset itself, locking all four doors while the vehicle was on and warming up in my driveway;
3. Chevy recently replaced my air conditioning unit because of a "dirty feet" smell and a few days later I went to get into my car and while it was completely turned off the air conditioner/heater turned on by itself. The same thing continued to happen intermittently without cause or warning.
As of the day of this writing my car is in the shop for evaluation. I was just informed that a bulletin just came out about the "dirty feet" smell and they are awaiting the part. As for the air conditioner/heater fan turning on while the vehicle is off, well lets just say that unless Chevy can dupilicate that the problem will not be fixed.
Please let me know if any of you have had any strange things go on in your vehicle.

If you get an electrical disturbance (eg. Check Engine Light) in your Aveo,
Go to 1st choice: Any Chevrolet service center;
2nd choice: Any GM dealership (Buick Pontiac,Cadillac.)
3rd choice: Any other car dealer. Why? Because the diagnostic equipment for reading codes is standardized throughout the industry. And all dealers should have the basic diagnostic equipment to gather and troubleshoot the computer codes.
When you arrive at a dealership with a "Check Engine Light" on
DO NOT TURN THE ENGINE OFF!! Codes are stored in a volatile memory which needs electricity to retain those trouble codes. Turning your engine off may stop the flow of electricity to that memory causing the codes to disappear and then you...and the service technicians are SOL. (squat outta luck)
You can buy your own basic trouble code readers from stores like Advance, Autozone, Pep Boys and WalMart. With a quality code reader you can capture, read and save the codes. Take the codes to your Chevy service people which gives them a place to start with the repair.
.....and Peace on the highways

this should not happen. i am a backyard mechanic. I just lost my ford escort....SOB SOB. It was doing this towards its end of life. It is indicative of a timing belt issue. If i stop at lights the lights would dim. If at higher speeds then it would not die or lessen in light in tensity. 85 amps should not do this. keep bringing it in until THEY fix. tell them to show you any of the other cars in the lot doing this all the time then you will back off. If not goto court. Check out neil Chyet , handle on the law website.

there is an alarm or something going off in my 04 aveo.
it is a chirping sounds like it is coming from the central dash area.
it will go off once, then again in 45 seconds
then after 4 minutes it does it two times again in 45 seconds.
It stays on this pattern.
I don't know if it is a warning alarm of some seat belt, door ajar, fluid low or what

That sounds like the seatbelt warning to me. Is the warning light on?

I have an 04 also and I've never heard any sort of alarm or chirping sound. To my knowledge, there is no audible seatbelt warning on this model year.
