#83 of 106 2005 Chevy Aveo problems
Jun 24, 2012 (7:14 pm)
I bought a 2005 Chevy Aveo sedan new from the dealership. I now have 130,000 miles on it. Through the years this car has all but tried to shut down everything. The clock stopped working (actually it works in the winter, if the temperature outside is over 60 degrees or so the clock goes on and off randomly throughout the day, then resets itself to 1:00 about every 5 or 6 hours, which basically renders it useless), the a/c does not kick on anymore even after checking the switch and the relay, the rear window defogger has quit (again not the fuse), the daytime running lamps do not come on anymore (not the fuse), I burn out at least 2 sets of headlights per year, the radio shorted out, and I had to have the entire head replaced ($2800) at 105,000 miles due to a bent valve and a crack in the head. Not the best car GM has ever offered, glad to see it go away.

Addressing the thermostat issue, I have a 2006 aveo hatchback and the thermostat had a catastrophic failure. The PLASTIC (yes, i said plastic) thermostat housing sheared completely off dumping all the coolant. Fortunately it did this in my driveway. I went to Autozone and bought one a new one for about $45. It was made of cast aluminum and when I tightened the flanges they snapped at about 10 ft lbs torque. I returned it and used the cash going to 0'reilly's were I purchased a steel thermostat for about $35. Works perfectly. But really, plastic???

I think my dome light bulb burned out on my 2004 Aveo. Has anyone had any experience with changing that light on this car? How do you get the cover off without breaking it? Is it hard to change?
It was working one minute and broken the next.

Nevermind. I figured it out and it was very, very easy and the light was not burned out. All is working again. If anyone wants to know about this, please let me know.

I'm having the same issue. I replaced the light, but still nothing. I'd appreciate any help.

Hmmm. My next step would be to check the fuse. I don't know which one, though. I looked for it when my light stopped working. Other than that, I don't know except it could be the wiring to the light on in the light.

The owner's manual includes a list of fuses. I haven't checked to see if the dome light is clearly marked, but it's worth checking your manual.

I have the same problem - lightbulb and fuse are both good and yet the light wont turn on. Did you ever figure it out? I would appreciate your time in responding. Happy holidays.
