Q: Car wouldn't start, waited 10 mintes then started on 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My daughter started her car this morning, drove about 1 mile and stopped, turned off the car. Came back out to start the car and it would not start. Had her check all the usual (in park, steering not locked,etc) and still nothing. After about 5-10 minutes she tried it again and it started. Mechanic is saying it could be something with the Theft block? anyone know anything about this? He's estimating 200$ for the part plus labor...

You don't have to guess about this,there is a way to inspect for Anti-Theft system problems. There are codes etc., take the Chevy to a shop that knows how to do this. It may be something else, like a crank sensor etc. No need to pay for some one guessing.

Try the gas cap first, better to waste 13 dollars, than hundreds, I too had same problem..you can order a gas cap from parts stores...
