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!

you may need to check your exciter wire. If you ndo not have power going through that wire, the ignition switch itself may be bad.

SOURCE: My car wont start and
On the Cobalt's the starter should be on the rear of the motor attached to the transmission housing.But before you change the starter you might want to have the battery checked to make sure that you have enough starting power from your battery.This can be tested at any auto parts stores for free.
