I am having a problem now with my 2006 Chevy Cobalt. I bought it in November and it worked okay for a few months. I had to get my car jumped started once because I forgot to turn the lights on auto and so my battery died. I got a jump from a friend, drove it a bit and it has been fine since then. A few days ago I was driving my car to work when I noticed my speedometer not working, I know nothing about cars so I decided to ask around. Some people said check fuses, so I went ahead and tested a few, nothing strange. I went to drive home when I also noticed it wasn't shifting properly, it's an automatic. It seemed to get stuck in a gear and not shift, all the while the speedometer is still broke. I looked it up, googled a bit and saw the TCM might be the issue. I had autozone plug in their little machine and it called out the TCM so with confidence I purchased a new one. It got in today so, with excitement, I replaced it, and it still had problems, except now all of my monitors stopped working, no RPM, no fuel, no Speedometer. I am very frustrated and I don't want to take it in to a shop to have someone con me out of money for a bit. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I really need my vehicle to commute and I'm desperate enough to consider trading it in or selling if the issue persists. Again keep in mind that I know absolutely nothing about cars so I may need a bit of detailed advice.
If I need to provide more info I'll gladly to so.
have the same problem?
