problems and solutions.

Okay, so i was just thinking about all the issues us cobalt owners have had with our cars, and decided to come up with this little thread for the new guys, or people with repeating issues. Post your problems you had with your cobalt, and what solved the issue.

Cobalt issues:

Speedometer working intermittently, power steering working intermittently, check engine light - replaced vehicle speed sensor, problem is corrected.

Service air bag light on, passenger side air bag sensor reading inactive - loose wire near passenger side seat belt retractor, reattached, problem is corrected.

High speed vibration starting at 60 mph - tightened lug nuts, checked balance of wheels, problem is corrected.

vibration/pulsation when brake is applied - rotors warped, turned on rotor lathe, temporarily corrected issue.

E-brake not working properly/too loose - tighten e-brake adjustment nut, problem is corrected
