Having problems with your 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt ?

2006 chevy cobalt LS with the 2.2L.. Never had issue starting in the past. I came home on lunch, went to go back to work and when I turned the key I heard a loud "CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK" for so long as I was holding down the key/clutch pedal. Once I released it (which was only a few seconds) I attempted to start the car again and it acted as though it had no battery power except for display lights on the dash and radio.

Sounds like you have a battery issue but could be the alternator wasnt charging it also last u drove and ran the battery down the best way to go is remove the battery from your trunk and take it into either a parts store or battery store and have them test it may take a while as they may have to charge it first to get a valid test so plan on dropping it off early in the day and returning a couple hours later if the battery tests ok after a full charge then reinstall it and should start with a full charge and then return to either your parts or battery store and they should be able to do a on car alternator test
Check connections and wiring at and around battery -alternator and check belt for tightness the click is relay/solenoid trying to engage starter if not enough juice wont start car== sounds more like dead battery problem which can be bad corroded connections/bad battery/or alternator going bad have battery-alternator - tested most auto stores offer this service for free if both good than have starter checked solenoid may be shorted or burnt

My son was listening to the car radio with the engine off for a couple of hours and as a result the car would not start. When you turned the key all you heard was a click, click, click. We tried to jump start it to no avail. Now there is no sound when you try to start the car. Also, when you open the door and put the key in the ignition the hazard lights flash and the interior dash lights also flash on and off for about 30 seconds. I installed a new battery and the same things happen. Did I burn

Please read the whole question. It may be long. So I have an 03 Toyota matrix. When I started the car today everything was fine. I went to the gym with a friend and when we got done and was in the car he released my hand brake (he does that for his car) and so my car kind of jolted. This was before I even put the keys in. When I tried to start the car it was kind of silent for a second or two then the car started. Later on after I got home and tried to go somewhere again the same thing happened.


Assuming you were parked on some sort of hill, the jolt was the car moving and applying pressure to the park gear in the transaxle which is normal.There is a neutral safety switch on the transaxle to prevent you from cranking the car in drive or ... Cars & Trucks

96 Cavalier won't start. Car wants to start and now the anti theft system light is on solid. Ran perfectly until my dad started screwing with my electrical system today with the key in the on position. I suspect the anti theft has gone off and it's shut off the fuel pump. Is there a fix for this without going to a shop? I have tried leaving the key on for 20 minutes, then shutting it off for 30 seconds, then attempting to start the vehicle... the light stays solid and doesn't blink or shut off.

My volvo V70 1998 won't start. The indicator lights go on so the battery seems fine but the engine does nothing when I turn the key-- no clicking or attempts to start. I've have this happen before, but it would always start on the 2nd or 3rd attempt. Also, PNP replaced. Also, right before this episode, the car started 2 times when I got it into neutral using the gear shift override button. At the same time, the headlights didn't work-- but the high beams did!
