Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

2006 cobalt LS won't start

When trying to start my car I put in the key, turn to start it and when it normally would fire right up and i'd be on my way, it makes a "ticking sound". to describe it kind of like how an automatic bb gun would sound. in the acc position the lights come on like normal, the radio comes on like normal, everything is normal until i actually try to start it. I've been told by a couple people that it is more than likely my starter cylinoid. Has anyone else experienced this problem, and how easy/expensive is it to fix??

Man i wanna ask you if the car is under warranty, and if it isnt then yea that really sucks. I recommend that you go and check your car battery and also make sure that your spark lugs are functioning properly. if it isnt these two things it could be the cars computer system not working the way it supposed to which could cause the car to not start due to faulty wiring. so yea i knoe these things probbaly are things that you dont think they are but just check thee things and if it isnt this then go to the dealership and figure out what it is. dont take it anywhere else besides the dealership you bought the car from. Other places tend to screw around with your car, but do what saves you the most money.

Did you try jumping it your battery could have enough volts to power your accessories but not enough to power your starter.so i would try that before you go out and buy anything.

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.

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

2007 chevy cobalt ls won't start battery good starter good turn key nothing no click nothing all lites work on dash and radio works jumped starter with screwdriver turns. Over but won't start...


Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

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.
