2006 Chevy Cobalt

Asked by Jan 07, 2015 at 04:03 AM about the 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving home from work last night and
I had my high beams on and they would go
bright then dim and bright again. When I got
to my road the car just suddenly powered
down! My headlights, dashboard lights,
radio and heat still worked and the car was
still on! (I already got the ignition switch
that was recalled fixed.) The car didn't stall,
I just had no power in my gas pedal. I
turned the car off, turned it back on and it
still would not GO! About an hour later I
went and started it and Voila! It went! I hve
no idea what is going on and I don't want
this to happen again. I need help. I also
don't have money to get ducked around by
some mechanic. I need to know what a
wrong so I can just get it fixed. I NEED my
car!

I could also put it into Drive and reverse and park with no problem other than my brake locking slightly. I had no engine revving or anything. It was like there was no power to my motor.

You could be experiencing an PCM problem that is effecting the charging system that could be going over voltage then dropping to under voltage, if this is indeed the the case it is very hard on the cars electronics, unfortunely you are at the mechanics mercy on this as it can be very hard to locate your problem unless the computer did manage to store a trouble code, take it to a shop you trust, tell them what you have experienced, you don't have to go to the dealer, most good shops have the necessary equipment to work on your vehicle.
