Hi. to all that have the aveo stalling problem. I had it too untill today !! My 2009 Aveo would stall almost daily while driving in town, specially after it had warmed up and run also very insecure even on the highways. Molle chevrolet in Blue Springs MO found the problem. They combed through the whole car and found it to be a ground wire behind the dashboard. Tech term = Repaired dash ground 102. The car runs now without any problem. They fixed a few other connectors. it is definately a ground wire problem. The car runs so different now it is amazing.
I hope this is helping everybody with the same problem. Make sure each reports this problem to GM, so they can make a decission to make a serious recall since it is not safe to drive the car , plus the diagnostic is not reading a darn thing, neither is any warning light coming on in the vehicle.

#244 of 307 2010 Chevy Aveo Starting Stalling problems
Apr 27, 2011 (3:35 pm)
Purchased our 2010 Chevy Aveo 94 days ago. It stalled the first week, continued to stall the second week. Keeps stalling. I have been in total denial since purchasing this car thinking it was just the new car needing to be driven host of reasons. Thinking-Wishing-Praying it was "is" just a glitch...temporary thing and today the sad fact is it is NOT! Now we have charged the battery twice it will not hold a charge. Now I am reading all of the problems with this Aveo here on Edmunds and other posts. I know with all the info on the Internet I should have done my homework before buying this car. Looks like I am in for an Electrical Problem. Right now I am to see the tow truck driver first thing in the morning to tow it to Medved Chevrolete...absolute imposition total drag and frankly is it right to have to have a car repaired that only has 254 miles on it! ? !

My 2009 has about 8000 miles on it with no problems. This could be as simple as a loose battery cable. But since you say the battery "will not hold a charge", it might also be that you have left a door or a light on that is draining the battery.
I can understand your frustration, but don't condemn the car prematurely.
OTOH, DO "hold the dealer's feet to the fire" and have them diagnose and correct the problem.

There is one other possibility you might check. If you use a key chain or key case that dangles from the ignition switch, that can cause the switch to go to the off position - hence, the "stall." It is best to use the key only in the ignition switch.

I can understand your frustration with this being a new vehicle and all, but I am glad to see that you are planning to work with the dealership to resolve the concern. Please feel free to keep us updated regarding the fix. Thank you.
Tricia, GM Customer Service.

You are totally wrong. I traded it in on a Hundai Accent. I refuse to deal with cars that have problems which can't be easily identified. I need reliable transportation. I will never buy an Aveo again.

James the mechanic at the Dealership frowned when we picked up the car. They replaced the battery. James mentioned that if there is a ground wire problem they can not find it and if it happens again have it towed in again and they will look again. He said sometimes Electrical problems are illusive and take a few tries to fix. ....Not Good for me good for you for having an Aveo that you can trust.... as for my Aveo ... I don't trust it.

BWolfe thanks for the suggestion. This Aveo was purchased for a Flower delivery business. The actual flimsy white tag with the Vehicles vin# is actually the only key available for this vehicle, I locked up the spare- we have yet to even put it on a key chain and this vehicle which has been driven 3 times, again it only has or had 254 miles on it when we experienced stalling problems and this now battery that lost its charge.

First time it was taken from the Dealership at 8pm and at a stop light it stalled. Second time a trip to the Flower shop from its stored location and it stalled third time a trip to Home depot and it stalled I drove it that last time and it was in the middle of the day, the trip was quick, I did not even turn on the radio, needed no exterior lights and when I returned it was parked. I dropped off a set of keys for someone and did not load a thing into this car. So how someone could leave a "Light" on defense totally blows. A car should not lose its charge. Somethings amiss. The stalls by the way twice were
when the car was at a stop light while idling. Once just after starting the car it started idled stopped. The fourth time we attempted to drive this vehicle dead battery that the tow driver (we called triple a forgetting about the warranty) Triple A said this battery wont hold its charge. So was of right now hate to say it but there seems to be an Ground wire problem with this Aveo.
