Idk What is Goin on Help Please.

06 cobalt ss/sc stock, 102xxx mi.

the last month it did it maybe three time. id walk out to the car get in go to start it but the car would not crank after switching it on and off about 5 times the car started to crank and started like normal after is started the theft light was on gauges would drop below zero or to zero and the power steering would come across the DIC id lose power steeing and then after abt a min everything will go to normal except the theft light being on..... well today i walked out this morning and it wouldnt crank but after 5 time it cranked and started the gauges dropped and the theft light was on and the power steering was gone, the difference today is that the gauges stayed down, power steering stayed off, theft light was on and the temp,coolant,avg econ, avg speed, all those read --- no numbers. as i was driving to the armory the guages would spaz and the DIC sensors would read then go right back out, so i made it to the armory and turned it off and went it to grab my rifle came out went to start it and it would crank again after about 5 times it cranked and started normaly the theft light was on again but the gauges and power steering and the DIC was working..... after the range today i go to start my car and it cranks over the first time and start fine with no theft light nor messed up readings or gauges..... idk whats goin on with this car but its got to be electrical idk if its the computer or what but its driving me insane and i dont have the money to take it to the dealer.

Change the TCM/ECM fuse top left corner of BCM fuse block. Fuse is only $1, if it cures your problem great, if not no big loss. Pull and re-insert all fuses if you have the time.

If the fuse looks like this change it for sure.
