Well, I own a 2008 Cobalt sport. I have had the Valve timing solenoid thing go out already, replaced it, now the code is being thrown again, for the same one. To add to that, I have this intermittent issue with my coolant temperature sensor, it randomly does not read, when it is not reading, my AC does not work (does not blow cold air), when it does read, AC works fine..but wait, there's more! One day my ESC light randomly came on, as well as the light for the ABS system, guess both of those dont work. To add to the issues I have, my gas tank started leaking just yesterday (evidently a recall item I will have fixed soon) and two weeks ago, water started getting into the car on the drivers side, my carpet smells like mildew and it has been raining non stop here in SC. My 81 datsun didnt even have this many issues, and it was completely rusted out! Anyone else have the same problems? I have looked, people have similiar issues, but not at the same time...etc. Thanks.

Well, then you are going to have to tackle these one at a time. Looks like a bunch of bad contacts. Clean your grounds, remove and reinsert all fuses. Then see how many of these problems are left.

Sorry to hear about your car. I too have a 2008 sport coupe. Bought new in March '08. Only known electical problem was engine shutting off while driving. Very scary. Dealer couldn't replicate problem so replaced BCM and hoped for the best. Five month's later, happened again. Dealer added redundant ground wires and that seemed to do the trick. That was November 2011 and no electrical problems since. Just turned 22k miles a few weeks ago. So very low miles on this car.

Do you have a sunroof? Maybe sunroof drains are clogged causing water on floor. Just a guess. Happened on my Saturn a lot.

Good luck. I hope you don't encounter more problems with your car.
