Yes my baby has been just sitting there for about a year now and I haven't been able to get rid of her because I know it's nothing serious it's just something electrical that's probably a simple fix but I'm a girl and I don't know much about cars and so I don't know where to even start to fix it but I took very good care of her. She's an 07 cobalt and when I got her she came with paperwork showing regular oil changes and regular maintenance done ever since 07 when she was brand new! She worked perfectly fine the day before she just randomly went haywire. We got a new car because I didn't know where to begin with mine but now I'm going through a pretty bad breakup and he has left me and his son with no vehicle so now so I really need to get her running if you would help me that would be amazing

First tell us what it is doing and what it’s not doing. Let us know if you have any technical skills and do you have any tools. Let us know how far away you are from a major automotive parts store…for tools/ diagnostics. The folks here are more than willing to get your cobalt purring…if there is still purr in your cobalt…
PS give a bit more detail on your cobalt,
Is your 07 cobalt auto or standard,
Does the engine turn over
how much fuel does the fuel gage register.
have you ever checked the battery or charged it…how old is the gas,

Answering These simple questions goes a long way for starts. Looking forward to your replies

Been going on for me for little over a month. 2 occasions leaving my baby useless. Now we sit happily 86% of the way upon SOLVING the issue, not just putting another $1000 worth of bandaids in it. I’ve put a total of, eh. $12? Into this issue. And I’ll be damned if these results are better than a lot of cobalt owners who went to give up. With the combination of quick fixes of people on here, and 30 year certified GM mechanic (grandfather) we’ve damn near traced it. ANYONE!!!!!! In this same spot electronically, little or problematic. Reply on here, and we’ll get you as far as I’ve come in a day and a half with him and wire schematic. Me and my grandfather are out to save my LT, and help anyone else in the pursuit of saving their cobalts.

I'm having all kinds of issues. Mainly w the starter, I think. Now the only way to crank her and stay running is connecting battery cables and jumping off w another vehicle. When I disconnect the cables, the battery drains in a few seconds. My starter is bad, I kno. My powersteering went out the other day and I found that the fuse was blown so I replaced it. It's a small yellow 60A fuse. But now can't crank. I cnt push start anymore . The steering wheel turns normal again but it still has powersteering on the dash. While letting it for for at 15, 20 min, she finally crunk. The temperature started to rise but I dnt think the ever came on. So I un hooked the cables and she was completely dead again.

Another issue when she won't crank, she'll turnover but wnt crank. If I try to crank again and doin it really fast, pump the gas twice, or jus wait a few minutes, she cranks. And if I try to crank several times, she usually backfires every time and then she'll crank. My battery is fairly new . I jus bought it from autozone a few mnths ago .

2007 2.2 LT, starter went south, replaced along with wire to alternator, it melted when starter went out. Everything was good, factory radio was having display issues with lcd, replaced head unit with scosche interface and WM‘s best $20 head unit. Everything was good, one day the car wouldn’t turn over, jumped it, it started right up, charged batt, took alternator to be tested, it was 100%, reinstalled everything, it started but, tach was jumping, speedo doing the same, and radio didn’t come on.

* Let me back up, first all the power windows stopped working.

Checked starter / alt wire job, as well as radio, all appeared good, no burnt smell either. No blown fuses, disconnected batt, couple months went by, reconnected batt, turned key and all the alarm sounds functioned as they should, it started like nothing ever happened, I drove around the neighborhood, it ran fine, turned it off, restarted, it was back to the same issues, gauges jumping, won’t turn over. Anyone experienced this fun?
