The problems you are experiencing are caused by the wiring inside the steering wheel. The radio input changing at random is the effect of a contact in the steering wheel control interface. If you have no steering wheel control interface check at the back of the radio for a short in steering wheel control connector's contacts.

The clicking noise when you turn is not coming from the flasher relay, but it is simulated and played by the same system that plays the seat belt chime. If both noises are gone it is probably because of a problem the wiring that goes to the internal car audio system or because a short circuit has impaired both functions.

Problems with steering column wiring are quite common in new Chevy Cobalt. GM has not issued yet any recall for such problems. Here a forum.

There is instead a recall to prevent sudden loss of power steering assist. The recall has been issued to face a critical problem, as loss of power steering while driving may represent an hazard. The recall will entitle you to a free power steering pump and control replacement. I suggest going to the nearest dealer place and asking about the recall. While the steering column is being disassembled to carry the repair you can also ask to have a look at the wiring in there.

Below recall number and details. Mention the recall number when you ask the dealer about repair conditions. The repair under recall is supposed to be free of charge.

Subaru how to unlock seat belt

Not quite sure what you mean by got around passenger seat. But if the seat is blocking the belt from retracting, then you only need to unbolt the seat from the floor enough to manipulate the belt around the seat. Or just completely unbolt it all the way, you just need a 14mm deep socket and a ratchet. But if you mean the belt just won't retract, then you'll need a new retractor assembly. I hope this info helps!

When you sit in the seat and put the seat belt on does everything work ok . If so look to the fact that you are required to wear a seat belt and the fact that you are not might be the problem.

Add middle seat belt to make 3 seat belts on a bench seat?

I'll begin by saying I'm surprised there isn't a 3rd belt on a bench seat, but I think you are entering dangerous territory. There is an immense amount of engineering, testing, and development involved in seat belt systems. They are anchored very securely at points that are reinforced and designed to withstand a human body being thrown against the belt, transferring the energy to the anchors of the belts. So, besides being beyond the scope of being possible to install by your average mechanic, I shudder to think of the legal angle. If u were to be involved in an accident, and someone was injured or worse in that seat wearing the added belt, the lawsuit possibilities are scary. Having said all this, check with your local dealer, maybe the Durango is set up somehow for an extra belt, but I've never heard it before.
