    Chevy Aveo check engine lite

    Need help with 2007 chevy aveo with 35500 miles. Dealer couldn't fine a code stored in computer. The lite comes on after first start up in AM only. If you shut the car off and restart after driving the lite stays off. Dealer had car for three days. Need help warranty up in 500 miles.

    Take a photo of the light on and shove it under the service writer's nose next time you're there. Don't let the dealer bamboozle you into ignoring this.

    Talked to Gm customer help line. They stated the lite has to be on. and a code stored. I leave for work at 5:50 Am. Gm said stop by the dealer when the lite is on. There is no dealer open at 6:00 Am. I need to be at work at 6:30 When leaving work the lite isn't on.
    They willn't pay for a rental car.. So I have a car under warranty that can't be fixed. They had the car for 1 day already. I said could it be the gas cap. No thats not the problem.

    Ask the dealer to install the vehicle data recorder. It can be set to store data when a DTC is set.

    hi
    we had our saturn astra to the caddy dealer 3 times before they got a stored code.
    onstar gave us 3 codes but none were stored,hence no fix.
    was back on 2 days ago,made appointment and dammed light went off about 5 miles from dealer.
    this time code p000b stored and they replaced sensor.

    If the light comes on it will set a code.Are you sure it is the check engine light?Does it run rough when the light comes on?Is the light on steady or does it flash?

    The car ran rough once. The lite only flashes. Every other day the lite comes on.

    If the light is flashing the ECM is sensing a misfire condition.It should set a DTC in history though.

    Yup. The dealer is lying to you. They are probably resetting the code and then saying they cant find it. Once the SES light is tripped a code is stored. Now, if it was a SVS then it might not store it but for a SES it is saved.
    Just that time again to ignore certain people. I'm certain they will continue to try and instigate and antagonize while throwing up their arms saying they did nothing but are here on a civil basis. Not worth the time seeing how some just seem to know all.
