It is very possible the ignition switch is at fault. This is a known issue with the 2005-2007 Chevy Cobalt. These models are part of the General Motors Ignition Switch Recall. Contact your local Chevy dealer service department and provide them with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN number) or check your VIN number on safercar.gov. If the vehicle falls within the recall, your Chevy dealer will replace the ignition switch free of charge under the parameters of the recall.
