Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

Car won't start

I have a 2006 Cobalt, it was running great and when i got home i parked it in the garage went in came back an hour later and it wont start. It has about 60,000 miles and I am thinking it is something to do with the fuel filter or pump. Is it common for the fuel pump to go out that early? And where is the filter located?

    My 2006 was working fine, the I did not use the car for 2 weeks and now it will not start. The lights come on the dash but the engine will not turn over. Do you think the gas is frozen?

    Has happened to me twice now...when it got really cold overnight it wouldn't start in the morning. After the temperature rose during the day it started right up. The battery was fine and all the lights came on and radio so i don't think it was the battery. Frozen starter???

    I have roughly the same problem. The car tends to die when it is really cold outside. Got everything tested and apparently the battery is holding a charge, and the load test passed. All the electrical systems checked out.
    However once it gets really cold, you go to turn it on and all that happens is a few clicks. Any suggestions?

Can you turn on the lights? If not, then the battery is dead. Time to get a jump.

My 95 Lincoln Town Car has decided that it does not want to start. I have replaced fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, throttle position sensor, cam position sensor, and crankshaft sensor, and last

It would probably help to get the car on a scan tool with live data readouts to see what is happening when the car is not starting. Also a spark tester and fuel pressure gauge could help diagnose whats happening or not happening when the car wont start.

The light being on has probably put the car in "limp in" mode. Its a kind of fail safe system to allow car to be driven to a shop for repairs. You need to have the code or codes read by scanning the engine computer, repair the problem, erase the codes, and then you should be able to drive it again normally.

My 2006 cobalt wont start

There can be a couple things, nutral saftey switch, AC DELCO, NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH Direct Replacement Part For OE Number 24219476 `$68.67 , ignition switch not adjusted correctly, try jumping the starter at the starter to see if the starter is working, of course I have just fixed a car that the guy didn't have the shifter in park, try these things and get back to me

2006 CTS: Wouldn't start (not dead battery) Burning rubber smell.

My first guess would be the fuel pump is going bad. Sometimes jarring it a bit will make it work again and the tow may have done it. If it does this again have someone bang on the bottom of the gas tank while cranking, if that cures it then you'll know for sure.

Car wont start after checking fuse

Double check to make sure you pressed all of the fuses all the way in. Did the same thing on my 06 Cobalt and it took me about an hour to figure that one out. : )

Also, make sure they are all in the right spots. (especially your ignition fuse)

Randomly won't start, happened after jumping dead battery

Probably the battery. Take it the chain auto parts place and they will test it for you.
