Please help me . My 2006 Chevy cobalt will not start. All it does is click. And when I push the break in I lose power to the radio. Is this my battery or is it my ignition , starter, or alternator....

I was about to answer when I read "all it does is click" , then I clicked on your question and it went from an honest question to something written by Monty Python.

I think what she's actually looking for is an honest answer to an honest question about a real problem, not a smart alec answer from an arrogant jackass. Janie, it sounds like a battery that has outlived its usefulness. They only last about 5 years and modern electrical systems do weird things when they're not getting enough power which could explain the radio cutting out when you apply the brakes. Most auto parts stores and any mechanic can load test it to be sure.
