    Some of us need actual help not a teaser video of another video after watching this no solution video! Just a minute while I click, " Do not recommend channel"

    This video helped immensely helped me diagose intermittant no crank no start. Probe light showed run crank relay power had a short or bad connection diagnosed by wiggling a new one which cut motor off. Replaced old runcrank relay with a new one and car would start. replaced fuse box, then grounded tcm which another video recommends, after u101 code and power steering warning came on odometer, now car runs fine. 2005 chevy cobalt 2.2l sedan. The other video is 2005 chevy cobalt no crank, no run by another group of guys. See comments on other video for details.

    i would CUT the wipers off …
    as THAT is the obvious problem …

    The first mechanic really jacked up this poor car

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Morris says:

    The owner should sue the fuck out of that shop. No basic understanding of basic electrical systems

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Whigham says:

    My Chevy Cobalt don’t click like that it just tries turning on and it takes a while to crank up. One time it didn’t start it just beeped and made a hummmm noise. What do you think is wrong with my car. It’s a Chevy Cobalt LS

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Danny Cole says:

    Yo Eric. I ran into an issue today. Car came from another shop. I've got 28 years under my belt. You know on any Chrysler IOD fuse. No draw after about 3hours or so. Battery dead In the AM. Well, after market radio/ navigation wouldn't shut down. Searching for satellite all night after the bomb ect went to sleep. So frustrating. The customer always needed the car today. Well shit, let me call the gods to find a problem you won't give me time to duplicate.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kasual Skeptik says:

    Of course !!! It's the tire pressure is low, causing the frame to sag and flex, which in turn causes a short in the gastank pump.. HAHAHAHA…

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dwnunda66 says:

    Since it’s the wiper cowl, it could be low on wiper fluid and that’s how it lets you know.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Burn Notice says:

    I ran across a 2007 Cobalt. Exact same problem. 100.00 For Sale.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tigersdeth says:

    I used to have the same problem in my 07 pontiac G5, but didn't have the fuse blocks problem. Sometimes it's the radio and have to enter the code if it's own radio

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Farris says:

    No!!!! A teaser!!! Oh wait….this video is four years old

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bryan_goethe says:

    Wow, never would have guessed

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rose Barnes says:

    I would start by checking voltage and resistance to ground of the cowling when at rest vs when being pushed. (Determine if bad ground issue or hot shorted issue)

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Kubash says:

    it looks like the spot welds broke and maybe when you moved it the 2 pieces touched and it completed the ground. I'm curious!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JeezusIsreal says:

    I've bad luck on chev. my chev 99 van blew fuse to computer. several.
    3 mechanics gave up. It was a ground wire on engine. I found it.
    Then my 2002 chev van in reverse only caused engine light and no power. Poor idle. Got worse each time reverse. So bad it smoked exhaust. No one could find it. Sold it.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adrian Dion says:

    My daughter bought a 2007 cobalt, no crank, no start. She took it to dealership and they replaces the tipum and it has been good since…but these cars are junk. Do not buy them

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mister Black says:

    I've heard fuse boxes can have a bad ground on chevys

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zico falcao says:

    Ground wire from tcm to body needs a better ground.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zico falcao says:
