Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
Keeps dying but will start right back up
Hi Mildred, I'm glad to help!
Mildred, no matter what type of vehicle were talking about when it comes to dying issues it can be a lot of things causing the problem. If the problem occurs when you come to a stop it could be the "IDLE AIR CONTROL" OR on some vehicles the "EGR VALVE". If the problem occurs while driving done the road it could be wiring problems or connector issues, fuel pump issues, Cam or Crank Sensor issues. Engine Controller issues. You can try tapping on the idle air solenoid and see if the engine raves up and you can also perform a wiring wiggle test on all the wiring with the engine running and see if it dies. You can also tap on the fuel tank and see if it dies. These are a few things you can try to find what the problem is. As you see Mildred, when you get into dying issues it can be very difficult to find the problem. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Mildred.

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

the battery is located in the trunk under the carpet where the spare tire is located, loosen the 10 mm nuts on the terminals and pull them off, gently pull the vent hose from the battery, loosen the bolt for the battery hold down, usually a 13mm or 15mm, remove battery and reverse the process to install

Start with the basics. Check the fuses (all of them) with a test light and be sure you have power to each and that they are good. Then be sure that the power lock relay is good by swapping it with another relay in the fuse block. If the fuses are good and the relay is swapped and the locks still aren't functioning, you may have an issue with the BCM. The BCM can be programmed to change the behavior, but if the car has had water damage, or other stress to the BCM (voltage, heat, etc.), it can sometimes damage the BCM and you will need to replace it and reprogram it at a GM dealership.

Fault with the IAC valve.there maybe a trouble code associated with it also./ Go to your nearby autozone or auto parts retailer and ask them to put a scanner to the car....make note of the codes if any are found. the IAC valve i usually locate don the throttle body and can be removed for inspection and sometimes cleaning using a good throttle body cleaner spray and a pipe cleaner brush.
