I had a 2010 Chevy Cobalt for 4 years and on January 10,2016. My car started up fine and then as I drove it the head lights dimmed. I continued to drive it because it seemed fine. Then every light in the car started to flash and then the car stalled and died. Then the car caught fire and I lost my car and everything. I had gotten the recall on the ignition switch fixed but I had no idea that there where other recalls on my car that had needed to be fixed. Because the check engine light was always on. Then my gas gauge always read full when it was not always full or it would say it was empty and still had stuff in it.

When I press them, nothing happens. I have to manually lock and unlock all the doors. My key fob is broken so I can't tell if that works or not. However, when I put the car in Drive or Park the locks automatically react.

Also, is it possible for me to get a replacement key fob without going to the dealer for the model car?

Thanks for any help you could give!

My car started losing power intermittently so I had the fuel pump changed. The problem still persists and now my car doesn't start up right away. It usually takes 2 turns of the ignition to start up.

I noticed that the rpm starts to wiggle after 3rd gear then stabilize, also the car gains and losses speed with the wiggle of rpm. Anyone knows what's the problem here? What should I do?

My husband has checked the battery with a multimeter and yesterday was fine and today the numbers have dropped. Today my battery light would come on and then go off. Is this an alternator issue?

I just bought an '06 Chevy Cobalt. And it has been doing really good when the engine is still cold. But after driving for awhile and the car gets hot it starts dying on me. When I stop and idle. And even when I go to slow down. When it dies I put it in park and turn it off. It fires right back up and dies again before I can even get it in drive. I need help! The guy I bought it from is a mechanic and he has been looking for the problem for almost a week and it still isn't fixed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...
