Electrical issues 2007 Chevy Cobalt

Asked by Jun 24, 2019 at 03:08 PM about the 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Okay this may be a long question but
I need an answer! About 2 months
ago my engine light came on. A week
later it went away but then came
back a few weeks later. About two
weeks ago, I was driving my car
around town, I stopped at home to
drop something off. I left my car on
since I was only going inside for a
minute tops. When I came back out
and out my car in reverse, my doors
started locking and unlocking really
fast, my rpm’s and mph kept going
up and down, my car was like jilting
forward when that was happening,
and my lights started to flicker. After
that, it would act up a little but
nothing crazy until a few days ago. All
of a sudden every time I get in my car
to drive, the traction control light and
the power steering lights come up on
the dashboard, my doors lock and
unlock, and the same happens with
my rpm’s and mph’s but now I get
stuck in first gear and can’t go over
20mph. It used to just do it for a few
seconds and then go back to normal.
Now it does it constantly and won’t
switch back to normal. It has even
just stopped moving. Like my car is
running and I’m pressing on the gas
but it won’t move. But I just turn my
car off and back on and it works but
is still having the same exact
problems. I’ve been told to either
replace my ecu fuse or replace the
entire ecm. I’ve also been told it
could be bad grounding. My car isn’t
able to make it to any shop in the
condition it is in so my question is
simple, what do you guys think is
wrong with it?!
