I have a 2007 chevy cobalt and my key got stuck in the ignition when my battery went dead.

Asked by Mar 05, 2014 at 04:06 PM about the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt LT1

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I saw a previous post on here that said to pull off the quarter-sized
panel beneath the steering and press white button.  I pulled the
panel off, but there is no button...only wiring.  I hope to pull the key
out once the car is jumped.  However, i would like to know what to
do should this happen again.  This appears to be a known issue.

You have to feel around for it, it is there. Put your thumb in the slot and feel a little to the left. The hardest part is finding the thing.

The main problem for this issue lies in the shifter assembly, there is a metal bar that falls out of place and has to be put back in the right place. Very easy fix.
