Does the switch have power into it and out when the brake pedal is depressed (use a 12 volt test light)? Check that. Has the brake light fuse been checked and is ok?

This code means that engine cylinder #2 is not carrying its load, it is a misfire. The cause of this can be fuel, ignition or engine mechanical problems like no compression. So there is no one answer, all must be checked and diagnosed.

Yes when it reaches about 450 PSI on the high side it will blow off. Very loud and looks like smoke.

After being in 3 feet of water, you may have a number of problems. If you have water in the engine, you may want to start by removing the spark plugs and turning the engine by putting a socket and half inch ratchet on the crankshaft bolt and turning manually to remove any water in the cylinders. Drain the oil and change the filter so you remove any water in the oil pan and add fresh oil. Turn the key to see if it cranks. If it doesn't crank, check the status of the battery. If all are done and it still doesn't crank, you may have problems with the vehicle's computer and may require further diagnostics to determine the problem. I hope this helps you. Good luck.

If you want to reset your computer the you will have to disconnect the battery for about 15 minutes and then have to drive the vehicle for the computer to relearn and ready the parameters back to normal operating conditions.

If you are talking about the cooling fan for the radiator, no. It should operate on a thermostatic switch and only run when the coolant reaches a certain temperature.

Does not sound like a bearing problem...I suggest you check the spare..most vehicles with the air pressure devices have the in the spare also...Check your wheel lugs make sure they are tight..to check the bearing jack the vehicle up one wheel at a time and Check for play in the bearing..there should be zero play in and out up and down or side to side...if there is need to replace it..good luck..

I have a 2009 Chevy Aveo. The hold light has come on two times since I have owned the vehicle. The first time at about 37,000 (just out of warranty)the vehicle started running very poorly. the check engine light came on as well as the hold light blinking. At first I thought it was a transmission problem, It was NOT. The problem with this gem of a car is that the spark plugs need to be replaced by 35,000 miles. The check engine light was due to the ignition coil pack being bad (cylinder 3) All four need to be replaced at once. After replacing the coil pack and plugs the check engine light went out and the hold light went out. This was an extremely easy repair. I walked my 13 year old daughter through the repair.

The second time the hold light went on was about a week ago. I now have about 52,000 miles. The light came on for no apparent reason. The only unusual thing that happened was that i accidentally spun the tires in the rain just before the light came on. The owners manual will tell you to bring it in asap because there could be serious problems. I couldn't believe i was having another major problem (there was no check engine light on this time) My guess was that the spinning of the tires could have had something to do with causing the hold light to go on and blink. What i did was disconnect the battery over night in an attempt to reset the light. It worked, i have not seen the light come back on in over a week. I drive about 50 miles a day on the highway as well as stop and go traffic. Ill call that a win.

These lights come on for a reason, if the light comes back on i will be planning on taking it in to a transmission specialist. I am not trying to say you should ignore your lights but sometimes a little effort before taking it into your mechanic can save you a bunch of money. I just wanted to share what i did with you all. Also you can have your check engine codes read my many auto part stores usually at no charge.

I would never buy another Aveo or recommend one to anyone. In my opinion they are poorly manufactured vehicles. I guess i should have guessed that any vehicle with a 3 year 36k mile warranty has such a short warranty for a reason! I hope i could help someone with my experience.
