Chevrolet Cobalt QuestionsHow to take out and install new universal seatbelt in driver side? (1 answer)
Our dog chewed up the driver side seatbelt when he was a puppy and we bought a universal seatbelt to put in, but there's a lot to getting the thing out. Wondering if anyone knows how to get it out of a 2007 Cobalt.
I removed two cyllinoids on my car and replaced them trying to test something out and then unhooked the cables to my battery for 15 mins, then reattached them. Now when i stop, the car stalls and shuts off. Any ideas on what could be happening?

Chevrolet Cobalt RecallsDriver's Side Curtain Air Bag Inoperative
A wiring harness that is not routed properly in the driver's side door may short, resulting in the side curtain air bag on the driver's side to fail and not deploy in an accident. Dealers will inspect the wiring harness and make repairs as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
In order to help prevent rollaway type accidents, all late model vehicles are designed so that the transmission must be in park (or reverse for a manual transmission) before the ignition switch can be turned to the "off" position and the key removed. These vehicles are being recalled because the key can be removed when the ignition is not in the "off" position, increasing the risk of a rollaway type accident. Dealers will inspect the vehicle and replace the ignition lock cylinder as necessary. 2 new keys will also be supplied and programmed as required.
The vehicles being recalled are equipped with an electric power steering (EPS) assist system. The EPS can fail unexpectedly while driving. If this were to occur, steering ability would be maintained but much greater effort would be necessary to steer the vehicle, especially at slow speeds. One of four remedies will be applied depending on the model and year. Parts are not yet available so expect a second notification when they are.
