I have a 2007 Chevy Cobalt with bare bone basics. The car rides fine, coolant level is were it should be, air filter is good, and gas cap is on properly. Could gasoline with a different blend and a higher octane amount cause this?
How do I gain access to the bulb ?

When I turn the key on the dash lights do not come on allowing me to start the engine. This doesn't happen initially on a cold start but any starting thereafter .

cruise control quit working and no volume on fm only?
worked great yesterday. This morning would not start. Nothing left on. Turn key and nothing at all first couple of attempts. Let sit about 5-7 minutes and tried again and it acted like it may want to crank once, but then nothing. Also after this no lights not even dome light would come on. Checked for lose battery cable. after checking cables it did the same as before. It would almost crank once, but then nothing. Also the dome light worked after I checked cables, but when I tried starting it again then no dome light. Please advise.
