Here's my short story. Please keep up.
Daughters 2010 Aveo 5 Automatic of course.
Daughter calls me that she can't get her car into PARK. Tell her to come home and I'll take a look.
She gets home and truly enough the car won't go into PARK. So I force it. STUPID I know.
Now the car won't shift out of PARK. I remove the shifter interlock cover and press on the little metal tab and still won't shift out of PARK.
Call daughter outside and check brake lights. NO brake lights.
I can hear a very faint clicking sound as I press the button on shifter but have no idea where it is.
Please help since I/she/we don't have funds to have car towed to a nearby shop or pay for diagnosis.
Little research done so far but I can't dig too much since I'm a work currently. Only thing I did find is about a relay to be replaced but the video was for a 2005 and after looking at her fuse panel the relay is not there. Must be elsewhere in the slightly newer model.
Please help. This is her only means of transportation right now and none of us can afford to purchase a replacement much less a repair shop at this time. Her car is sitting on street right now and she's driving my wifes car at this moment. At least no one can steal the Aveo.
