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!

Key won't turn in 2008 Chevy Cobalt. Tried moving


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 :)

2008 cobalt key will not turn in ignition. tried moving shifter and stering wheel and another key


Have you got the correct key??

Spray some CRC into the key hole.

Try "jiggling" the steering wheel at same time as turning key.

2009 cobalt, key is in ignition, will turn to on position, will not start, will turn off but key will not come out of ignition. gear selector will not move.


theres many different terms for it but it sounds to me like your cobalt went into "theft mode" (emergency mode, panic mode, etc.) your best bet would be to call the dealer and ask them how to "reset" your car.

Cannot turn key in ignition in 2008 cobalt. Attempted to find a release mechanism under steering column as I did with 2005 cobalt but the 2 or 3 things I could move did not release the ignition.


try moving the shifter back and forth from park to 1 then back to park, there is an issue with the shifter not releasing the park lock mechanism that goes into the ignition cylinder.
