Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt
I had the same problem with my car. It was something to do with the serial power network in my car. The Instrument cluster along with my stereo on my 2005 cobalt died.
I ended up replacing the instrument cluster and radio. The instrument cluster didn't have to have the VIN programmed into it, but the stereo did.
If it says "LOC", call you're local GM service center and have them unlock it. It cost me $54 dollars to get it done.

There is a code in the owners manual packet that came with the car, it has instructions and the code, if you don't have this material call the dealer withe the VIN of your car and he may be able to provide the code.

You will have to go to dealer to have unlocked. The vehicle has built in theft lock system in radio. Most of them have code stored in radio that needs to be pulled before removing battery.
