What occurred is that the theft module has reset
typically this only occurs with after market systems but I've seen it a few times with the factory system too

assuming you have the factory alarm key fobs
try locking and then unlocking all doors

open and close the passenger door
open the drivers door
close passenger door
close drivers door
try to start the vehicle

if vehicle still will not start then you will need a professional scan tool to reprogram the keys and computer

My cobalt will start up all day long, but when it sits all night and i try to start it in the morning, it wont start...i have to get a jumpstart from my neighbor..there is nothing left on..the battery in...

Welcome to Fixya

Test the battery using a voltmeter. You should be getting at least 13v up. If you dont have that reading then the problem might caused by a battery that is not holding charge and need replacement or something is draining the battery. If you can borrow a battery, test it to your car and leave it overnight. If the battery drains, then there is short somewhere.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I just changed my oil and Now the car won't start.

Your battery needs to be around 12.6 volts to start. Try jumpstarting your vehicle, or purchase a cheap battery charger for around 20$, and let it charge for a couple hours.

My 06 sedona wont start just a clicking noise, radio and lights work. Just got a new battery for it and nothing changed. Is there a fuse/relay problem or probably the starter?

Try jumpstarting it. My 06 has done that a few times and jumpstarting has worked every time. Usually, one of the kids left a dome light on or something.
