Just Bought Used 06 Chevy Cobalt Ls Coupe Few Issues

Ok I just got it a few days ago and Im in love with it and love the way it drives
just a few things wrong with it some I knew about others just happened

1 - the locks go crazy even when im not in it like they unlock and lock and the switches dont work

2 - my left turn signal goes really fast on the dash, and my driver side turn signal and break light went out yesterday ( seems related happened exactly the same time )

these are really my only issues other then this i love the vehicle

For the fast blinking that means a light bulb is out for the signal on that side.

Door switches don't like getting rain. You can get replacement Dorman switches on eBay or rockauto. Easy enough to change.

mnosz; I responded to your message...hope it helps w/the door switches. Yours are acting just like ours so swapping them should resolve.
