Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt
Vehcile stereo codes are different for every radio to deter theft. The codes are usually around 4 numbers. There are a couple ways to find out what your code is. First, check your owners manual, someone at some point may have written it down in there. Also, there may be a card somewhere in you paperwork that has the code. If you don't find the code, the easiest way to find out what it is, go to you local GM dealerships service department, if you give them you VIN number they will be able to give you the code (most of the time free of charge). My last suggestion, pull the radio out, sometimes it will be written on the unit.

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!
