See Section 2 of your Owner Manual. 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. 9 Remote Keyless Entry and Content Theft-Deterrent Systems (if equipped) On equipped vehicles, use the Remote Keyless Entry transmitter (integral to the ignition key) to: • 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 doors. 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 range is reduced, check the: • Distance — you may be too far away. • 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. Accessory Power Outlet and Cigarette Lighter Your vehicle has an accessory power outlet to power accessories such as a cell phone. It is located next to the parking brake. To use it, remove the protective cap and plug in the accessory. Replace the cap when not in use. (See your Owner Manual for important safety details.) The cigarette lighter is located to the right of the front ashtray. With the ignition key in the ACC or ON position (the lighter will not operate in the OFF position), push the lighter knob in all the way and release it. When the element is fully heated, the knob will pop back out automatically. See Section 3 of your Owner Manual. 10 Getting to Know Your Aveo Climate Controls A C D B E Use the following controls to operate your climate control system: Air Temperature: Turn the temperature knob (see “A” above) clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the temperature. Air Conditioning (if equipped): With the fan turned on, press the air conditioning button (see “B” above) to turn the A/C on or off. Fan Knob: Turn the fan control (see “C” above) clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease fan speed. Recirculation: Press this button (see “D” above) to prevent outside air from entering the vehicle. If your vehicle has an air intake lever (base models), move the lever to choose the recirculation mode. Extended use of the recirculation mode can cause the windows to fog. If this happens, select the defrost mode. Mode Knob: Use this knob (see “E” above) to direct the flow of air into your 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). • Select the temperature. (Defrost): Directs most air to the 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. 11 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. 12 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. 14 Getting to Know Your Aveo Notes 15 Notes 16 Getting to Know Your Aveo Roadside Assistance 1-800-CHEV-USA (1-800-243-8872) TTY Users: 1-888-889-2438 As the proud owner of a new Chevrolet vehicle, you are automatically enrolled in the Chevrolet Roadside Assistance program.
