Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

2006 cobalt won't run

My 2006 cobalt was running fine, except that since I don't have the key fob the alarm would go off every time I opened the doors with the key, as soon as i turned on the ignition the alarm would go off and the car would run fine. The other day I was driving my car and it turned off while I was driving it. I have not been able to turn it on since. I believe the problem has something to do with the anti-theft system.

    I have a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt and every time i open the trunk (with the key), or the doors with or without a key the alarm goes on and will not turn off until i turn the car itself on.



    Also my car locks are problems, when the car is off and parked they all lock and unlock about 3 or 5 times before finally settling on either to stay locked or to stay unlocked...how can i fix this?

Try unhooking the negative cable on the battery and let it sit for an hour this should reset the computer

How do I get my alarm system to chirp instead of beep when it goes off or when I lock my doors with the remote entry key fob?


Check to see if your vehicle honks when you press the "lock" button on your key fob. Press the "lock" button multiple times in a row. Many devices won't beep unless you double-tap the button after locking. If the horn doesn't honk, but the lights flash, your chirp feature is probably disabled.

Use your keyless fob and ignition key to enable the audible chirp. The process varies considerably on different makes and models. You must usually consult your owner's manual, a dealership or the alarm manufacturer for the correct process.

Alarm key fob set off alarm


If you lock the car with the key, you must open it with the key, or alarm will sound. If you lock on fob you must open on fob. If you use ke y, place in ignition quickly to silent alarm. Good luck

Both key fobs with new batteries dont respond. I set the alarm off when i manualy open the door and alarm wont allow me to start car for more than two seconds. What do i do??


The question is .... Did you get the keys wet? I know you won't want to hear this but if you replaced the batteries and they are still not responding then either the batteries are dead from new or you will need to replace the key(s) through your chrysler dealer ( very expensive). I also had a similar problem with my 08 Avenger where I replaced the battery on my key and it would unlock the doors/turn off alarm but when I started the car it would only run for a minute then shut off. Luckily I had the second key that was operational so I could make it down to have my key replaced that was bad. Hope this helps.

If the passkey is messed up, there will be a light on the dash that says security, or have a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If there is no light when the key is turned forward, then its NOT a passkey problem.

If you lock your doors with the remote, you have to use the remote to unlock them or it set off the alarm. I don't know why the manufacturers designed it that way(kind of stupid)but it's programmed into the on board computer. You can't disable the alarm without creating a worse problem somewhere else.

Does it have a little laser light bulb looking thing in the front of the remote that you can clean? And are you absolutely sure you put a good battery in it?
You also may have gotten something down inside under the button. Can you take it apart and clean the little circuit board in there where the button presses down on? Just a few things to try in your spare time. Raz

Keyless entry stopped working on 05 cobalt now i have to unlock door with the key and when i do that the alarm goes off. Help


Lock all the doors from the inside (with all the doors closed), unlock your driver's door by manually lifting the lock, then press it back down after you are out - this will prevent the alarm from sounding when you use the key to unlock the door.
