Power Door Locks and Lockout
Protection
Your vehicle may have a central door
locking/unlocking system that is activated from the driver door. When the driver
door is closed, pushing the lock knob
down (shown below) centrally locks all
doors.
To prevent accidental lockouts, this function will not operate when the driver
door is open, and the driver door itself
will not lock when it is open.
You can also lock or unlock your vehicle
with the ignition key, or by using the
optional Remote Keyless Entry
transmitter. To further prevent lockouts,
the Remote Keyless Entry System will
not lock the driver door if it is open.
However, central locking will lock all
doors if the driver door is closed and
other doors are open.
See Section 2 of your Owner Manual.

• Unlock the vehicle doors by pressing
the Unlock button once.
• Lock the doors and arm the Content
Theft-Deterrent System by pressing
the Lock button once to lock all

The Content Theft-Deterrent System will
arm only if you use the remote transmitter or lock the doors with a power lock
switch. It will not arm if you lock the door
with a key. To turn off the alarm, press
the Unlock button on the transmitter or
unlock any door with the key.
The remote transmitter’s range is up to
about 20 feet (6 m). If it doesn’t work or

• Location — other vehicles or objects
may be blocking the signal.
• Battery in the transmitter (use
replacement battery CR1616).
• Match of the transmitter to the vehicle
(see Owner Manual).
See Section 2 of your Owner Manual.

vehicle. Modes include:
(Vent): Directs air to the instrument
panel outlets.
(Bi-Level): Directs half of the airflow
to the instrument panel outlets and the
rest to the floor outlets.
(Floor): Directs most of the air to the
floor outlets and, on equipped vehicles,
to the rear outlets as well. (Recirculation
does not work in this mode.)
(Defog): Directs most of the air to
the windshield and the floor outlets and
a small amount to the side window outlets. (Recirculation does not work in this
mode.)
To help clear the side windows quickly:
• Select the bi-level mode.
• Select the highest fan speed.
• Select A/C (if equipped).

windshield, with some sent to the side
window outlets and floor outlets.
(Recirculation does not work in this
mode.)
(Rear Defogger): Press this button
to turn the rear window defogger on or
off. The heated outside rearview mirrors
on equipped vehicles will also activate.
See Section 3 of your Owner Manual.

Malfunction Indicator
Lamp/Service Engine Soon
If the light is flashing: When it is safe
to do so, stop the vehicle and turn the
engine off. Wait 10 seconds and restart
the engine. If the light continues to flash,
see your dealer for service as soon as
possible.
If the light is on steady: If you recently
put fuel into your vehicle, reinstall the
fuel cap, making sure that it is tight. A
few driving trips with the cap properly
installed should turn the light off.
See Section 3 of your Owner Manual.
Shifting the Automatic
Transaxle into Park or Neutral
Your vehicle may be equipped with an
automatic transaxle.
To shift into Reverse or Park: The
Aveo’s shifter is a gated shifter. The
shifter uses the shifter’s knob as the
release mechanism and there is no
other separate button that has to be
pushed to release the shifter. To shift the
transmission from “Neutral” or “Drive” to
“Reverse” or “Park,” you will have to
push down on the shifter’s knob. The
shifter will not move into Reverse or
Park if the knob is not depressed.
To shift out of Park: The automatic
transaxle is equipped with a shift lock
control system that locks the shift lever
in Park (P) when the ignition is in Lock.
To shift out of Park (P), the ignition key
must be in the On position, and you
must fully apply your regular brakes. If
you cannot shift out of Park (P), ease
pressure on the shift lever and push the
lever all the way up into Park (P) as you
maintain foot pressure on the brakes.
Then move the shift lever into the gear
you want.
See Section 2 of your Owner Manual.

Getting to Know Your Aveo
Automatic Transaxle Hold
Control Mode (if equipped)
Integrated with the optional automatic
transmission, this feature gives the driver complete control over the transmission gear selection.
When Hold Control is selected in the “D”
position, the transmission is held in 3rd
gear, which locks out overdrive (4th
gear) and provides additional torque and
responsiveness at most higher speeds.
This allows for engine braking during
higher speed descents and decelerations. It also reduces/eliminates wheelspin when starting out on snow or ice.
Similarly, if Hold Control is selected in
the “2” position, the transmission will
start in 2nd gear (instead of 1st), helping
reduce wheelspin when starting out on
slippery surfaces.
Note: Since placing Hold Control in the
“D” position locks the transmission in
3rd gear and prevents downshifts to
2nd or 1st gear, acceleration from a
standstill or near standstill on dry pavement will be slower than expected. Hold
Control should be deselected during
these situations.
To set the Hold mode:
• Place the shift lever in the gear range
you want to hold.
• Press the HOLD button located on
the shift lever console. (The HOLD
indicator light on the Secondary
Information Center will illuminate.)
• Press the button again to turn off the
Hold mode and return to normal automatic transaxle operation.
See Section 2 of your Owner Manual.
Reverse Lockout Feature
(Manual Transaxle)
This feature prevents the engagement of
Reverse (R) gear when the vehicle is
moving forward.
To shift into Reverse (R), depress the
clutch pedal; then lift up the ring on the
shift lever and shift into Reverse (R).
Slowly release the clutch pedal while
pressing the accelerator.
Note: Shifting into Reverse (R) gear
while your vehicle is moving forward
could damage the transaxle. Shift into
Reverse (R) only after the vehicle is
stopped.
See Section 2 of your Owner Manual.
13
Cold Weather Automatic
Transaxle Shifting
When operating your vehicle in severe
cold conditions, the transaxle may be
prevented from shifting into 4th gear
until the transaxle fluid has warmed up
to its operational temperature. It may
take several miles of driving to warm up
the fluid and enable the 4th gear upshift.
While the fluid is warming up, your
vehicle will shift normally between 1st,
2nd and 3rd gear.
See Section 2 of your Owner Manual.
Lift the hood and release the hood prop
from its retainer on the underside of the
hood. Place the hood prop into the slot
on the inner fender.
Opening the Hood
To open the hood, pull the hood release
handle (shown above) located on the
lower-left side of the instrument panel.
At the front of the vehicle, feel under
the front-center lip of the hood for the
secondary hood release (see above
right) and push the lever up, using a
squeezing motion.
To close the hood, lift up on it to relieve
pressure on the hood prop.
Remove the hood prop from the slot in
the inner fender and return the prop to
its retainer on the underside of the hood.
Lower the hood to 8–10 inches above
the vehicle and release it to latch it fully.
Check to ensure that it is latched properly and repeat if necessary.
See Section 5 of your Owner Manual.
