SOURCE: saturn ion 2005 or 2006 - cannot get key out of ignition

If you have a cigarette lighter or power port, usually you can power up the system by using a jumper battery attached a a probe. connect the negative part of the jumper to any good metal surface. make a tube out of cardboard and insert it into the port, then use a phillips head screwdriver attached to the positive cable and touch it to the center terminal of the port while pushing the trunk button in.Even though the cardboard should act as a shield, be careful not to touch anything but the center contact!!!

SOURCE: dead battery

It could be a defective ignition switch as well (it has a disabling circuit) thinking the vehicle is stolen. The dealer has the equipment to see if is throwing a code for that.

SOURCE: My 2007 tundra went dead. The ignition won't start

There are several possibilities ranging from a defective starter, to bad cable connections, to the onboard security system locking out the starter relay, or an aftermarket accessory interfering with the starter circuit, or a locked-up/damaged engine.

I have had vehicles towed into my shop for similar complaints when the only problem was that the customer was using a cheap duplicate key that they had made at the hardware store that did not have the required computer chip in it.

I have also had vehicles towed in where the customer had replaced the battery and did not have good cable connections or forgot to connect one of the wires that was supposed to to get hooked-up to the battery connector.

Then there are the questions: Are you getting any kind of "clicking" noises when turning the key or is it completely dead? If it is clicking, WHAT is clicking? Is it the starter motor itself that you hear or just the starter motor relay? Do you have battery power at the starter "S" terminal when turning the key? If not, is the transmission selector in "PARK"? Does the shift indicator on the dash indicate that the transmission range sensor is in "PARK"? (possible defective transmission range sensor) Are there any fault codes stored in ANY of the modules connected to your onboard computer network?

It is really hard to say without being able to see the truck.

Electrical system on vehicle goes down and than comes back on. Everything on the dash goes out and comes back on or we have to start the car again.

With electrical issues, I usually pick one component that has a problem, then check the wiring diagram for that component. If that circuit is fuse protected, so much the better, then you check fuse circuit for voltage. Some fuse circuits are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on. If the fuse circuit gets ignition feed, meaning it goes hot with the key on, have to check feed to and from ignition switch.
Sometimes intermittent problems can be hard to track. Have to do testing when problem is ongoing.

2006 Chev Cobalt won't lights, no sounds nothing. When tried to get the key out it won't go past the ACC position? Any ideas on the problem?

Is the battery dead? Check your battery condition and connections. Check your starter fuse from there. Check the connection to the starter then progress to the ignition side of the concern

Yea how about if when you turn the key it has power , but whn you turn to ignition everything goes dead ?

Turning the key to on causes current to flow to light power draws like the fuel pump, ignition, etc.
But turning the key to start, causes 10 times that amount of current to go to the starter.
So one possibility is that the battery is weak, the battery terminals are dirty, etc., and you just don't have enough current.
But another possibility is that the starter is drawing far more current than it should, from something like an internal short, a frozen engine, etc.

Thank you for contacting

The key lock/unlock for doors are powered by the batteries in the remote, while the ignition key draws its energy from the vehicle via induction. Since the battery is dead you are having this problem. You need to call assistance from the nearby auto shop or a locksmith. I guess you don't have any other option.

If the battery is dead, that should be your first clue. You need to diagnose your charging system. If the battery is dead, it is also EXPECTED that you won't get any codes. If the charging system voltage goes below 9 volts, all kinds of weird things will happen. Computers don't like it much when you put them on a crash diet. :)

The first thing I would suspect is a bad alternator.
