Asked by Aug 23, 2016 at 05:15 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt LT1

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2008 Chevy will not start.
1. Before she decided to let go and let
God, she started smoking not too thick not
to lite. The smell of burning wires. Stinky.  
But she still drove.
2. When she went out. (Worst day of my
life) she didn't start, but turned really slow.
Gave her a jump. Still nothing but, the
lights flickered so were the locks.
3. After leaving her be for a day or two.
When I try to start her, she clicks. ( click
click clickidy click). Tragic I know right :-/.
But still, the lights flicker, so does the
locks. Someone please tell me what I
could be. I'm dying over here.
