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: 2006 chevy cobalt - door won't open

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.

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.

For about the last week or two, my car door locks just continually unlock, as if someone is pushing the unlock button on the key fob. It does this even when the keys are not it in, and while it's


Sounds like you have button to one of your door locks that is stuck, you remove door lock switches and disconnect 1 at a time to see which one it is. Over time a stuck switch will drain the battery it's sending voltage to all locks constantly, there's a switch tied to ignition switch on some models that locks door when you start the engine and unlocks doors when you shut the engine off, Chev. Suburbans have that

I have a 2006 Chevy Cobalt that I bought used. Didn't have the remote for the door locks. I can unlock all of the doors from the driver's side, however I can't lock them. Any suggestions?


check the lock side of the switch, its not connecting, remove the switch and test it, if the doors will unlock its letting you know the plungers are working, and that to lock its not getting any power to reverse the action, ( check the individual doors, if they work both ways,, then its the drivers door switch that's faulty

2006 Chevy cobalt The passenger door will not open no matter what I do. I was trying to unlock it and a guy was trying to open at the same time ..now it will not open at all???


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the linkage inside the door fell off and is not operateing the lock release. Bring the car to a repair shop that fixes Glass, Locks they should be able to open the door with a special tool then remove the inside panel to check all the linkages.
