There is no reminder for the timimg belt .I have an 04 hit about 59000 and the belt went bad, car was running no noticiable problem until I went to restart it and it wouldn't start. $1500 later new belt ,2 valves,plus labor.
#10 of 12 2007 Aveo sedan, "engine light" and "brake light" problem
Sep 06, 2008 (7:39 pm)
I bought an 07 Aveo sedan LT new. From the start, I have noticed that the "check engine" light and the "parking brake" light come on with the rest of the "dummy" lights, however, these 2 stay on after the others go off. They stay on for maybe 3-4 minutes or so, then flicker out. Right away I took the car back to my dealer and explained the issue at least twice to the service department. When I went back later on that afternoon to get the car, they told me they "couldn't duplicate" the problem therefore they couldn't attempt to fix it. The service guy said they checked for the codes to see if anything popped up but nothing came of that either.
This problem happens every morning when I first start the car. If I get to work and turn off the car, then maybe an hour later drive the car again, it won't happen. Basically it seems to occur when the car has been sitting for quite awhile, for example, by the end of the workday.
I have never had any problems with the car at all, just the weird thing with the lights. The check engine light never comes on at any other time during driving.
Any ideas on this? The dealership has been nice about it but seem to be clueless about helping resolve it.

it could be spark plugs making it misfire and causing the light to come on. have it hooked up to get the code and look it up online your self before taking it to any machanic or dealer
