08 Cobalt Won't Start. Please Help.
First I'd to start off by thanking everyone in advance for any help provided. My girlfriend owns a 2008 Cobalt and this morning, after driving fine for months, just simply would not start. The motor turns over fine but won't start. Before we get into that, a brief history of the car....a few months ago her automatic door locks went haywire and were open/closing non-stop. I did some research and found that most people point to the BCM for this problem. I just pulled the fuse for the auto locks and called it a day. The car has been running fine since. About 4/5 months later (today) she went outside and the car would not start. Ive been tinkering here and there and after a little research I found that this issue could be one of many problems including the BCM.
I disconnected the batteries and pulled the big red plug out, blew out any dust, slapped some Dielectric grease on it and plugged it back in.
After this, I jumped in to start it.....started up right away. I even drove it around the block and let it run for a few minutes. Ran fine.
I turned off the car, got out, and hung around for a bit.
I went to test it again. Car started...idled fine for 15 sec and just died. It is now back to not starting. The engine turns over but the car does not start.
