Are your brake lights working? Shift lock solenoid needs to receive a signal from your brake pedal switch so if you have lights out or blown fuse it could lock in park.

When you turn ignition on it releases a cable that is attached to the shifter also the shifter has a solenoid attached to it that is released when you step on the brake. Both times that I had the problem of button stuck and cant shift out of park the solenoid was sticking and wouldnt release .

SOURCE: BRAKE LIGHTS AND SHIFT INTERLOCK NOT WORKING

Hello Joe...The Aveo has had it shares of problems, and this is one of them....NHTSA issued several bulletins on the 04 Aveo...this following is the one pertaining to the shift interlock.....

Make : CHEVROLET Model : AVEO Year : 2004
Manufacturer : GENERAL MOTORS CORP.
Service Bulletin Num : 070730007 Date of Bulletin: APR 01, 2007
NHTSA Item Number: 10022265
Component: POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Summary:
AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE/TRANSMISSION SHIFT LEVER MAY NOT SHIFT OUT OF PARK (REPLACE BRAKE TRANSAXLE SHIFT INTERLOCK (BTSI) SOLENOID). *KB

Take that bulletin number to your dealer and see if they can help.

Untill you can get it repaired heres a little tip for getting it out of park....There is a a little hole in front of their gearshift lever that can correct the problem, temporarily. It should say "brake interlock release" or something like that. With car running, put a key-size object into it and push down while moving the lever. It does not damage the transmission, it just releases the lock. (make sure your foot is on the brake)

Now for the brake light issue...do you have power at the switch you replaced? If so go to the relay and check there...if no power there it's probably a bad ground.

Also...you may or may not know, but the timing belts on these Aveos are prone to failure at aprox 50k ...these failures have caused severe engine damage.
Good luck...i hope the information i've provided you find useful.
Please time to rate me.

SOURCE: 2006 Chevy Aveo, can't shift car out of park

You need to replace your BTSI (brake transaxle shift interlock) solenoid. I have replaced MANY and it is the problem 99% of the time. The only other thing it could be is your BTSI fuse so check it first. All you have to do is remove the shifter assembly and install a new BTSI solenoid (couple of screws and two connector terminals) and you will be driving in no time. Hope this helps!!

I have a 2006 Chevy Aveo, the key won't shut all the way off and is stuck in park, I replaced the break switch and it still doesn't work. I did notice that the ABS light doesn't come on when I start the...


There is a solenoid under the cover where the shifter is. You need to replace it. You can get the part from a dealer and will take 30 mins to fix. In the meantime wiggle the shifter around while turning the key and it should work like that until you get the part.

2006 chevy cobalt LT. the key is stuck


Have you tried shifting the gears completely through and then putting the car in park. It sounds like the car isn't able to be put completely in park to release the key. Try putting the car in N and removing the key. Even thought the car may not completely be in park to release the key, The gear most likely is in park but not enough to make the switch/sensor to release.

Cannot remove key from ignition


I have a similar problem in my 2006 Aveo. When turning off the vehicle, the key will not come out completely unless I "nudge" the gear shifter slightly to the right; this allows the key to turn freely and come out. Similarly, when shifting out of park, I must nudge the shifter slightly to the right until I hear a click. Then I have to quickly push it further to the right in order to shift out of park. Apparently this sort of thing is a common problem in the 2005-06 model Aveo. While I haven't gotten mine fixed, I have researched some things you might try... first, I would look into the BTSI (brake transmission shift interlock) solenoid. Apparently it has been a common cause of this problem. Second, you might try removing the fuse for your radio... I read that one person that was able to do this as a temp. fix. Hope this helps.
