2008 cobalt not starting after recall replaced

Asked by Feb 27, 2015 at 05:56 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our 2008 Cobalt has the ignition switch and cylinder recall and the dealer replaced the
part. The invoice shows the part number for the ignition lock cylinder only, not the
switch. Shouldn't there be a part number for the switch also? The car is still not
starting. They put in a new anti theft module and this was not the problem. The car is
at the dealer now and they have no idea what it is. No codes are coming up. Could this
be some issue to do with the recall?

Don't pay them a dime. This happened after the recall fixes, they can and should make it right with you. Its all related what they replaced and the problems you're having. Don't let them bully or b/s you into paying for their problem/mistake.

The ignition switch was not part of the recall. The ignition lock cylinder is all that gets replaced. Having said that, it seems odd that the car is now having other problems, but whatever it is it is not recall related. The're not just going to let it sit there, and they're not going to give it back to you when it won't start. Sit tight and let them fix it.
