Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

2 Answers

Key is stuck

I HAVE A 2006 COBALT LS AND I CAN'T GET MY KEY OUT. THE CAR WON'T START EITHER. I CAN'T EVEN TURN MY LIGHTS ON SO I THINK THAT SOMETHING MIGHT BE WRONG WITH THE BATTERY. I HAVE TRIED TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL TO THE RIGHT AND LEFT TO GET MY KEY OUT BUT NOTHING HELPED. I GOT THE MANUAL OUT AND I TRIED TO RELEASE THE KEY BY PRESSING DOWN THE PLUNGER WHILE TURNING THE KEY TO LOCK POSITION (MANUAL PAGE 2-20) AND STILL NOTHING WOULD HELP. PLEASE HELP ME IF ANYBODY KNOWS WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY CAR. I DROVE THE CAR YESTERDAY AND I DIDN'T HAVE A PROBLEM THEN I PUT THE KEY IN LAST NIGHT AND THE CAR WOULDN'T START THEN I COULDN'T GET MY KEY OUT. WOULD MY KEY GET LOCKED IN THE IGNITION IF MY BATTERY IS DEAD.

2006 Chevy Cobalt LS won't start


Could be a weak connection between the battery and starter, or the clutch safety switch. You would need to know how far power is getting in the starter circuit to figure it out.

For about the last week or two, my car door locks just continually unlock, as if someone is pushing the unlock button on the key fob. It does this even when the keys are not it in, and while it's


Sounds like you have button to one of your door locks that is stuck, you remove door lock switches and disconnect 1 at a time to see which one it is. Over time a stuck switch will drain the battery it's sending voltage to all locks constantly, there's a switch tied to ignition switch on some models that locks door when you start the engine and unlocks doors when you shut the engine off, Chev. Suburbans have that

How can I get key out which is stuck in ignition of 2008 cobalt. It also won't start


This can happen if the battery is low / dead. To solve, connect a set of jumper cables between the battery in the Cobalt and a running car's battery. Shut off the running car. In the Cobalt, make sure all accessories (lights, radio, fan, etc.) are off. Step on the brake, then move the gear shifter fully into the PARK position. Next, either attempt to start the engine, or turn the key to the OFF position and remove it from the ignition.

I hope this helps & good luck!

2006 Cobalt LS Coupe Intermittent Starting Problem


sounds about right, probably is ignition switch, reason you don't get codes is because if power is'nt connecting to engine while problems occurs then ecm won't pick it up. you should have 2 ignition switches, (the lock cylinder and key switch, the other is the electrical, usually located under the dash, and commonly atttatched to the column close to the firewall, check connections first, it may just be a loose plug in connection

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.

2006 chevy cobalt woulnt start lock light is on


Are you using the original key that came with the car? The chip in that key may have gone bad. Try using the spare key that should have come with the purchase of the car. You may also be having battery issues. If all else fails....call the people who really know how to rape you...DUM Dum dummmmm....the dealer
