Chevy Cobalt 2009 Radio, watch and stereo system stopped working. I also don't hear the tick tick sound of turn signals although I can see the light for them in dashboard.

Asked by Dec 11, 2016 at 04:10 PM about the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have Chevy Cobalt LT 2009. And all of sudden, radio, watch and stereo
system stoped working. There is no sound for turn signals. And all the gauges
in the dashboard keep turning off and on. Could someone please suggest
something? Fuses for radio and Audio system are fine.

Have your battery load tested. A weak battery can make the electrical system do weird things. While you're at it scan it for trouble codes, something may turn up there as well.

Munron, thanks for the answer. However, somehow, it started working again automatically. What could be the reason?

A weak battery. Mine did that for quite a while. As soon as I put a new battery in it the problem went away. Modern auto electrical systems are so sensitive. If everything isn't in top condition you can have problems. Batteries only last about 5 years. If yours is that old or older you need a new one anyway. Eliminate that as the source of your problem before searching elsewhere. Good luck.

Thanks for the answer. However, I went to an auto shop, they checked the battery and said that the battery was okay. I bought this car from someone and I am not sure, how old this battery is.

You've done the right thing by eliminating that as a trouble source. Did you have it scanned for trouble codes? That would be the next step.
