If the anti-theft system was activated by a problem key, would you still be able to turn the lights on ( both head lights & inside lights?)


Yes. Security systems generally only prevent the engine e from starting/running. They do not affect any other systems. Theft system light should be on or flashing if theft system is problem

I have a 2006 cobalt all fuses are good new battery no codes show up when the ignition is turned over lights blink motor doesent turn over there is a light on the dash that has a car with a lock through it


This sounds like the anti-theft system - Are you using the original factory key? Have you tried locking the car with your remote and then unlocking it with the remote (if you have one)?
