This is how you do it.
Ensure that the transaxle case temperature is 70° to 90° F (21° to 32° C). With the engine running, shift transmission through all gears. With engine idling in PARK, remove the check plug from the transmission. If transmission has been overfilled, allow fluid to drain out. If no fluid drains out, add fluid through the TRANS FLUID fill cap under the hood on the driver side in 1 pint (0.5 liter) increments until it slightly flows from the check plug. Reinstall the check plug.

SOURCE: Trans-axle fluid leak
checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

COULD BE FAULTY VECHICLE SPEED SENSOR. BUT HAVE VECHICLE CODE SCAN. YOUR VECHICLE TIME FOR TRANSMISSION FLUID CHANGE IF FLUID IS LOW. YOUR VECHICLE HAS A CHECK PLUG ON TRANSMISSION ADJACENT TO OIL PAN DRAIN PLUG. YOUR VECHICLE HAS TO BE LEVEL AND RAISED ON A CAR LIFT WITH ENGINE RUNNING WITH CHECK PLUG REMOVED. TRANSMISSION FLUID SHOULD DRIP OUT SLOW DRIP FLUID LEVEL GOOD.TRANSMISSION FLUID DRIPS OUT FAST TOO MUCH FLUID IN TRANSMISSION. IF NO FLUID DRIP OUT YOU NEED ADD PINT AT A TIME.IT MUCH SAFER TO LET A GARAGE CHANGE CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID.WARNING THIS IS A DANGEROUS JOB TO DO YOUR SELF.VECHICLE NEED TO BE RAISED UP ON LEVEL HARD SURFACE.CAR SHOULD BE ON JACK STANDS.ENGINE NEED TO RUN UNTIL TRANSMISSION FLUID OPERATING TEMPERATURE REMOVE THE 11M OR 12M CHECK PLUG ON TRANSMISSION PUT DRAIN PAN UNDER TRANSMISSION. IF NO FLUID COME OUT ADD PINT AT A TIME. YOU POUR TRANSMISSION FLUID AT TOP TRANSMISSION AREA WHERE FILLER TUBE USE TO BE LOCATED REMOVE THE RED VENT FILL CAP.SCREW IT OFF USE A LONG LONG FUNNEL TO POUR FLUID IN TRANSMISSION. TO DO THIS JOB YOUR SELF NEED HELPER OR SOME BODY AROUND AT ALL TIMES BECAUSE ENGINE GOING TO BE RUNNING, YOU ARE GOING TO BE DIRECTLY UNDER THE CAR.WEAR LONG SLEEVE COVERALLS TO KEEP FROM GETTING BURN UNDER CAR.DONT PUT HAND OR ARMS NO WHERE NEAR THE CRANKSHAFT PULLEY WHILE ENGINE RUNNING.LIKE I SAY BE CAREFUL THIS JOB IS A DEALERSHIP JOB.

There are only 2 things you can try to fix this yourself: turn off the engine and open the driver side door (to turn the radio off). Wait 5 minutes, start your car.
If that does not solve it, turn off your engine, disconnect the car battery, wait about 5 minutes. Reconnect the battery (negative pole first - black connector) and try your radio again.
If neither one of these two fix your problem, I am afraid only a GM service center or dealership can fix the problem. The Cobalt is notorious for all kinds of electrical issues.
Thanks for using the fixya forums!
