SOURCE: 2006 chevy cobalt woulnt start lock light is on

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

SOURCE: my 2005 chevy cobalt factory radio is locked

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!

SOURCE: My 2006 Chevy Cobalt steering wheel has locked and

sounds like your steering column lock is binding you need to slightly turn the steering one way or the other while turning the key at the same time. this happens if the steering wheel is turned after removing the key. or when parked against a curb.

SOURCE: 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 :)

SOURCE: Chevy Cobalt: key stuck in ignition

Does anyone know what the recalled part is for the Chevy Cobalt that causes the key to get stuck in the ignition? I would greatly appreciate any help on this as I do not have $600 to get it fixed.

I have a 2005 Chevy cobalt. I went to turn my car on and my key will not turn and the steering wheel is also locked. Anyone know how to fix this?


I don't know if this is a for sure fix but this also happens on the wife's cobalt. I press on the brake and slide the key in. I try to easily turn the key and wiggle the steering wheel back and forth all while pressing the brake. It eventually lets the key turn and the wheel will turn normally. What it is doing actually is a safety/theft feature to lock your steering wheel so it will not move if someone tries driving it away being hard wired. Anywho try the above it usually works for me.

OK remove the panel under the steering wheel becareful not to damage the trunk release wire or button you have to diconnect the wire from the button, after that is done you well see the power steering motor make sure all connector are in the large black and red are power and ground the other wire is the wire that is controled by the computer thats the one you have to make sure is in if it has a good connection then the motor is bad and has to be replaced.

Hi, what you need to do is put the key in the ignition then grab hold of the steering wheel then whilst trying to turn the key you need to turn the steering wheel to the left or right it may be a bit stiff but once its moved it should free the lock, so try turning the wheel to the left and right as hard as you can whilst turning the key doing this should free the steering lock and get it started.

also try putting the key in the ignition the other way round and then give it a try.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
