Question about 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt
Pull the negative battery cable off then the positive. There should be a release button on the underside of the steering wheel to release the key.
Is it a newly made key ?

try and turn your steering wheel a little bit left or right and and the same time try and turn the key when it turns toward the dash then try and turn the key back. try and repeat this several times if neccessary. this should work. please rate this solution. thanks

If it has a automatic transmission make sure it's in park (try pushing the shifter while twisting the key). Try wiggling the steering wheel while twisting the key. If the car is parked for long periods of time the ignition cylinder could be sticking (try spraying WD-40 in around the key). I had a classic car and the key fell out while the engine was running. And when I turned it off I couldn't turn it again even with the key, I had to replace the lock cylinder.

This sounds like a warn ignition lock. The tumblers probably are warn down and have too much slop so the unit is jamming. Try wiggling the key around as you turn. Good luck.

first thing to try would be to remove car from park to a gear and then put firmly back into park...... then retry,
if doin that a few times dont work, you will prob need to replace the ignition cylinder....... make sure it appears gear selector levers parts are all in their place,, visually that is
