Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt
I am wondering the process to change out a ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM on a 2007 Chevy Cobalt? Mom's car and don't want to spend $800 to fix it. Please help
Electric power assist is a recall on the cobalt. Take it to a Chevy dealership and they will replace it free of cost

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

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!

The most likely cause is that the window motor has gone out. Is the car still under warranty? One way to check the motor is to turn the ignition on, don't start the engine, then try to operate the window while watching the dome lamp. If the lamp dims when you activate the switch, it is most likely the window motor. If not then next likely cuplprit would be the switch.

now what it sounds like is the key has a sensor built in it the keys cost around 60.00$ but this is most likely what is wrong. the sensor is a security feature with the car if the light glows while trying to turn the car then this your problem :)
