Anti Theft Mode

Asked by Dec 27, 2017 at 07:44 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Chevy Cobalt. I tried to start my car
like normal but it was dead and now I can’t get my
key out. My gear shift button is also stuck for some
reason. My car was jumped so i could drive it and
turn it on and off although the key still wouldn’t
come out. A few hours later my cars dead and the
anti theft mode came on. Is there anyway I could do
a system update or do I have to get it towed to a
dealership?

Many, if not all late model GM's lock the key in the ignition when the system goes dead. Have someone take you to Walmart and buy a new battery , once installed you should be ok
