      2007 Chevy Aveo Brake and back up (reverse) lights are not working

      Hi All

      I've just purchased a 2007 Aveo (sedan, 5 speed). After i drove 500 miles, i realized that my brake lights and back up lights are not working. What do you think the problem would be?

      I would check fuses and the brake switch above the pedal.

      First bring it back to the dealer if you got it from a dealer. If you didn't then check relays and fuses. I also understand that there is some sort of brake switch solenoid that goes bad. Check that

      I know when i first got my 2005 Aveo LS my back up lights wouldn't work, i did a bit of research and you can get a reverse switch which should go right on the front of your transmission if you have a manual transmission. its not hard to find and is no more that $20 i believe. its an easy job to do yourself, you just unplug the wire from the switch, unscrew the switch, replace it with a new one and plug it back in!

      as everyone else has said, Start Simple, and check the fuses in the Dash, as well as the Operation of the BOO. (Brake On/Off Switch) if those seem fine, make an appointment with an Honest Chevy Dealer and have them check the wiring.
