2006 Chevy Cobalt power dying with new battery in it, is it the starter?


If the car died while you where driving it, it sounds like it is the alternator. Did it start right up or did you have to boost it? If you had to boost it to start it again,I would say it is the alt., but if it started right away w/o a boost, it is something else.

2006 chevy cobalt LT. the key is stuck


Have you tried shifting the gears completely through and then putting the car in park. It sounds like the car isn't able to be put completely in park to release the key. Try putting the car in N and removing the key. Even thought the car may not completely be in park to release the key, The gear most likely is in park but not enough to make the switch/sensor to release.

Car shuts down after 20 minutes of driving


a likely problem is a fuel pump going down...as it gets warm, it heats up the wiring inside and they expand causing a loss of connection inside the pump...As it cools, it comes back together and works again...when it dies out turn the key off and listen closely for the pump to hum when you turn the key on...If it doesn't wait for it to cool and then when you try again listen and if you hear it and it starts, that's your problem...fuel pumps will go bad quickly if you don't keep your tank at least a quarter to half full as the gas is what keeps it cool so it don't get too hot and melt the shellac on the wiring which will eventually short out...

2006 chevy cobalt. the key will not come out of


If the wheel is turned in either direction, pull the whell in that direction and try getting the key out. If that doesn't do it, try shifting the automatic transmission from Park back to drive, and then to park again to disengage the interlock.

My 2006 Chevy Cobalt steering wheel has locked and i dont know how to unlock it. I can't even turn the key when i put it in the ignition


sounds like your steering column lock is binding you need to slightly turn the steering one way or the other while turning the key at the same time. this happens if the steering wheel is turned after removing the key. or when parked against a curb.

2006 chevy cobalt woulnt start lock light is on


Are you using the original key that came with the car? The chip in that key may have gone bad. Try using the spare key that should have come with the purchase of the car. You may also be having battery issues. If all else fails....call the people who really know how to rape you...DUM Dum dummmmm....the dealer
