This is a common problem with Cobalts. I worked in service at a Chevy dealer for the past 2 years...The long and short of it is your shifter assembly needs replaced . Try jerking on the shifter and slam it into park real hard sometimes that will get the key out.

Car wont start and key stuck in ignition


Sounds like you are losing the power from the battery. Loose connection somewhere between the battery and the fuse box. The car is going into security mode (which prevents the car from starting). This happens when people change the car battery. Leaving the ignition key on for 10 minutes and the security light quits flashing. Car starts. I would be looking at the battery connections and other main power leads going the the relay center. Good luck.

Lock then unlock the doors with the power lock button, with all doors closed (key not in ignition). If this doesnt work, try again using the key to lock and unlock from the driver door, with all doors closed.

Key locked in ignition... can't get it out. HELP!


while in park, press harder up past park and it will disengage. Otherwise there is a pin on the ignition you can press and remove the entire ignition. You call also lightly tap gently around igniton piece to loose the pins inside that hold the key.
