i bought a 07 cobalt ls december 29th 2013, and when i parked it i left the lights on and ofcourse the battery is dead, i just tried boosting it now and nothing happened, all you hear is a click like it wants to kick over, i may also add its about -8 degrees celcious or so. can anyone help me?

for future reference if you leave it in the auto spot they'll turn off by themselves and flip to low beams when it gets dark enough.

sounds like the battery to me but I would think it would start with a jump

you probably need a boost then let it run for a bit. leaving the lights on probably drained the battery

I tried boosting, and all it did was click but we just let it sit for 5 mins and try, maybe try longer? and you can boost from the front battery right?

from the front post on the fuse box? sometimes, my friend's doesn't work for boosting other cars so if I were you I would try to get the cables directly on the battery in the trunk

ok I'll try that, but here's the problem, my trunk won't open because it didn't get used and the trunk button don't work (hopefully just a fuse)

hmm...start checking fuses. if the battery is super dead you might have to check visually or check continuity with a meter

the boosting terminal in the engine bay can come loose as well which will make you think the battery is dead
