Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

My 2005 Colbalt's battery is dead. The keys are stuck in the ignition and the truck will not open when pushing the truck release button. I can't get the keys out to unlock the truck to jump start the battery. How can I get the keys out? or how can I get the truck open? I really don't have the money to get another key made... Please help!!

2005 quattro , battery is dead and hood wont release.Is it an elecrtonic release?


Heidi, No electric release. The latch is probably stuck. While you pull the interior hood release have an assistant push down and pull up repeatably/vigorously until hood releases from stuck position. Lube latch and cable before closing hood. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Sorry you have a bad ignition switch
You Should Replace it ... The last clue is the dead battery
The interlock with the the transmission need the ignition switch to work correctly

You could try a little silicone/graphite powder but you DON't want to be stranded so get er fixed

They come to wherever you are usually and do the repair onsite
