My 2006 Chevy Cobalt is having a few problems that started today. The alternator recently went out and was replaced. Its been about a month with no issues, but I am now receiving several warning messages and dash lights.
The warning messages read:
"Power steering" (when this comes on my power steering turns off temporarily),
"Service airbag" (air bag light turns on also), and
"Check charge system" (battery light comes on with this one).
They will all go on and off several times while driving. None are staying on constantly. The AC cuts out and in too and the dash lights go bright and dim multiple times per second. It seems to think it isn't getting enough power so it tries to shut some systems down or something.
We had the battery and new alternator checked and both showed as good. The person who checked suggested something may be wrong with the electrical or computer system? I don't even know where to start to find what the problem is. Please help.
*Additional note, I had the Power Steering replaced less than 2 years ago due to recall, so it is not a bad recalled part there.*
have the same problem?
