Hello tneary1121

Yes, it could be a bad starter, but, first check the battery cables and make sure that there is no corrosion and they're tight. Also, check the connections at the starter, there should be two connections. One goes to the battery and the other goes to the ignition switch.

Use a test light to verify power at the starter. There should always be power to the cable from the battery to the starter and the "smaller" wire should have power when the key is turned to the start position. Have an assistant turn the key to start while watching the test light.

As always be careful if you lift the truck, use jack stands and make sure the truck is in park or if you have a manual transmission in neutral.

Regards,
netvan

Run a wire direct from battery to the small terminal on the starter motor solonoid ,if it still doesnt work or click then its either the earth cable from engine to the chassis or the starter motor .

08 Chevy Cobalt wont start. Battery is good.?


Generally speaking, if the starter was dead it would not jump start.
Sounds like the key switch or the neutral safety switch.
You would need to know if the starter has power when the key is in the start position.

Do you have a rpm guage? If so see is it moves when cranking, if not the crankshaft sensor is bad and is located on top of the transmission bell housing. Also it can be scanned to confirm a faulty sensor
