Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
We have tried leaving the ignition on for 10 mins but nothing. had the car jumped off and gas up and nothing. just had a recall on my ignition switch and they finally fixed in august of this year. what can i do instead of having to wait all the way to monday for the dealership to look at my car
Don't know what type of vehicle this is but could be a transponder chip. Usually no cranck conditions are bad battery, wiring to starter, starter, starter relay and ignition switch

A more likely problem is the Passlock II sensor in the ignition key cylinder. I have a 2002 Malibu that had the same problem; it was fixed when I replaced this sensor.

no cutoff switch!! try this turn key to on, do not start car. let sit for about 30 minutes, after 30 minutes, turn key off. wait 15 seconds and try to start car. this should reset anti theft system.

The problem is not your computer. The problem is a defective PassLock cylinder. It is not reading your key correctly. The lock cylinder for your ignition reads a chip in your key and sends a digital signal to the computer to let the computer know that a valid key is being used to turn the ignition on. (This keeps some jerkwad from stealing your car by breaking the lock cylinder and starting the engine with a screwdriver.) When the security light starts flashing and the engine will not start, it is because the ignition switch was turned on and everything powered up but the passlock system did not read a valid key code. Replacing the passlock cylinder should fix your problem. This is pretty common.
