Hi

Your car has a steering lock that clicks into place when you take the car key out of the ignition. This prevents thieves from being able to steer your car if they hotwire it. Sometimes the wheel is turned to just the right place to keep your key from being able to disengage that steering wheel lock. All you have to do is turn the wheel a little bit in either direction while you turn the key.

Also Make sure the transmission is in park (for cars with automatic transmissions).Set the parking brake to prevent the car from rolling farther against the curb.Pull hard on the steering wheel while turning it in both directions. If this doesn't free the wheel then release the parking brake and put the transmission in neutral. Let up on the foot pedal just enough to rock the car slightly.Turn the steering wheel again. The key should turn now.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

How can I get key out which is stuck in ignition of 2008 cobalt. It also won't start


This can happen if the battery is low / dead. To solve, connect a set of jumper cables between the battery in the Cobalt and a running car's battery. Shut off the running car. In the Cobalt, make sure all accessories (lights, radio, fan, etc.) are off. Step on the brake, then move the gear shifter fully into the PARK position. Next, either attempt to start the engine, or turn the key to the OFF position and remove it from the ignition.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Car won't start keys were left in ignition


Try jumping/boosting the vehicle, all of the above will still work with a weak/low battery but the starting system takes a lot of amperage to turn over the engine. If you only left the keys in the car and no lights on or anything running why would it not start if it was starting correctly before??? Whats happened since the car was last started?

Key won't turn in 2008 Chevy Cobalt. Tried moving


now what it sounds like is the key has a sensor built in it the keys cost around 60.00$ but this is most likely what is wrong. the sensor is a security feature with the car if the light glows while trying to turn the car then this your problem :)
