Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
Mykey won't come out of ignition , somtimes the key will turn to the lock position the key will come out other times it will not .I have to turn the car on and off 2 to 3 times before the key will come out
The problem is not your key. We had the same issue with our cobalt. it is in the ******* column where you put the car from Park to reverse to drive. There is a small pin that runs through the bottom and it has become dislodged. You have to take the covering off and you should be able to see where it is and replace it. Be careful as our car would not stay in park you need to put the emergency brake on whenever you park the car until it is fixed. It only takes about 30 minutes to fix it from start to finish. I think the actual name of the pin is a shift cylinder but don't quote me.

The key is not cut right. Trust me i had the same thing happen to my key. you have to go and get it rekeyed.

I would try another key if one was available to you (yours may or may not be slightly bent)or I would replace the lock cylinder itself which could possibly be damaged and not allowing key to remove. Hope this helps let me know if you need any further info on this.
