Chevrolet Cobalt 2007 Manual Pdf

If this is done, it can help you learn about the features and controls for the vehicle. Pictures and words work together in the owner manual to explain things. A notice tells about something that can damage the vehicle. Many times, this damage would not be covered by your vehicle’s warranty, and it could be costly. The sudden movement could startle and confuse you, or make you push a pedal when you do not want to. To raise the seat, move the lever upward repeatedly until the seat is at the desired height. To lower the seat, move the lever downward repeatedly until the seat is at the desired height. The switches are located on the instrument panel above the climate control system. Press the side of the switch with the double indicator lights to turn on the heated seat at the highest setting. The sudden movement could startle and confuse you, or make you push a pedal when you do not want to. This position reduces the chance of a neck injury in a crash. Pull the head restraint up to raise it. In a sudden stop or crash, the person sitting there could be injured. After you have used it, be sure to push rearward on an easy entry seat to be sure it is locked. To lower the rear seatback, follow these steps: 1. Open the trunk and pull one or both of the small handles located in the center of the trunk. Push and pull on the seatback to be sure it is locked into place. CAUTION: If the seatback is not locked, it could move forward in a sudden stop or crash. That could cause injury to the person sitting there. It also tells you some things you should not do with safety belts. CAUTION: Do not let anyone ride where he or she cannot wear a safety belt properly. Here is why: They work. You never know if you will be in a crash. If you do have a crash, you do not know if it will be a bad one. The rider does not stop. With safety belts, you slow down as the vehicle does. You get more time to stop. You stop over more distance, and your strongest bones take the forces.

That is why safety belts make such good sense. Questions and Answers About Safety Belts Will I be trapped in the vehicle after an. You may be an excellent driver, but if you are in an accident — even one that is not your fault — you and your passengers can be hurt. Being a good driver does not protect you from things beyond your control, such as bad drivers. Here is how to wear it properly. 1. Close and lock the door. 2. Adjust the seat so you can sit up straight. To see how, see “Seats” in the Index. 3. It may be necessary to pull stitching on the safety belt through the latch plate to fully tighten the lap belt on smaller occupants. The lap part of the belt should be worn low and snug on the hips, just touching the thighs. The shoulder belt is too loose. It will not give nearly as much protection this way. CAUTION: You can be seriously hurt if your shoulder belt is too loose. In a crash, you would move forward too much, which could increase injury. The lap belt is too loose. CAUTION: You can be seriously hurt if your lap belt is too loose. In a crash, you could slide under the lap belt and apply force at your abdomen. The belt is buckled in the wrong place. CAUTION: You can be seriously injured if your belt is buckled in the wrong place like this. In a crash, the belt would go up over your abdomen. The shoulder belt is worn under the arm. It should be worn over the shoulder at all times. CAUTION: You can be seriously injured if you wear the shoulder belt under your arm. In a crash, your body would move too far forward, which would increase the chance of head and neck injury. The belt is twisted across the body. CAUTION: You can be seriously injured by a twisted belt. In a crash, you would not have the full width of the belt to spread impact forces.The belt should go back out of the way. Before you close the door, be sure the belt is out of the way. If you slam the door on it, you can damage both the belt and your vehicle.

Like all occupants, they are more likely to be seriously injured if they do not wear safety belts. A pregnant woman should wear a lap-shoulder belt, and the lap portion should be worn as low as possible, below the rounding, throughout the pregnancy. Accident statistics show that unbelted people in the rear seat are hurt more often in crashes than those who are wearing safety belts. Rear passengers who are not safety belted can be thrown out of the vehicle in a crash. Pull up on the latch plate to make sure it is secure. When the shoulder belt is pulled out all the way, it will lock. If it does, let it go back all the way and start again. In a crash, this applies force to the strong pelvic bones. And you would be less likely to slide under the lap belt. If you slid under it, the belt would apply force at your abdomen. Rear Safety Belt Comfort Guides Rear shoulder belt comfort guides may provide added safety belt comfort for older children who have outgrown booster seats and for some adults. When installed on a shoulder belt, the comfort guide positions the belt away from the neck and head. The elastic cord must be under the belt.The person wearing the belt could be seriously injured. The shoulder belt should go over the shoulder and across the chest. These parts of the body are best able to take belt restraining forces. Although you cannot see them, they are part of the safety belt assembly. They help tighten the safety belts during the early stages of a moderate to severe frontal and near frontal crash if the threshold conditions for pretensioner activation are met. What is the proper way to wear safety belts. An older child should wear a lap-shoulder belt and get the additional restraint a shoulder belt can provide. Here two children are wearing the same belt. The belt can not properly spread the impact forces. In a crash, the two children can be crushed together and seriously injured. A belt must be used by only one person at a time.

Here a child is sitting in a seat that has a lap-shoulder belt, but the shoulder part is behind the child. If the child wears the belt in this way, in a crash the child might slide under the belt. This includes infants and all other children. Neither the distance traveled nor the age and size of the traveler changes the need, for everyone, to use safety restraints. In fact, the law in every state in the United States and in every Canadian province says children up to some age must be restrained while in a vehicle. A baby does not weigh much — until a crash. During a crash a baby will become so heavy it is not possible to hold it.Airbags plus lap-shoulder belts offer protection for adults and older children, but not for young children and infants. Neither the vehicle’s safety belt system nor its airbag system is designed for them. Add-on child restraints, which are purchased by the vehicle’s owner, are available in four basic types. Selection of a particular restraint should take into consideration not only the child’s weight, height, and age but also whether or not the restraint will be compatible with the motor vehicle in which it will be used. A young child’s hip bones are still so small that the vehicle’s regular safety belt may not remain low on the hip bones, as it should. The harness system holds the infant in place and, in a crash, acts to keep the infant positioned in the restraint. A forward-facing child seat (C-E) provides restraint for the child’s body with the harness and also sometimes with surfaces such as T-shaped or shelf-like shields. A booster seat can also help a child to see out the window. Make sure the child restraint is properly installed in the vehicle using the vehicle’s safety belt or LATCH system, following the instructions that came with that restraint, and also the instructions in. One system, the three-point harness, has straps that come down over each of the infant’s shoulders and buckle together at the crotch.

A label on your sun visor says, “Never put a rear-facing child seat in the front.” This is because the risk to the rear-facing child is so great, if the airbag deploys. CAUTION: A child in a rear-facing child restraint can be seriously injured or killed if the right. This system is designed to make installation of a child restraint easier. The LATCH system uses anchors in the vehicle and attachments on the child restraint that are made for use with the LATCH system Make sure that a LATCH-compatible child restraint. A top tether anchor is built into the vehicle. The top tether attachment (B) on the child restraint connects to the top tether anchor in the vehicle in order to reduce the forward movement and rotation of the child restraint during driving or in a crash. Rear Seat Each rear seating position has two exposed metal lower anchors in the crease between the seatback and the seat cushion. To assist you in locating the top tether anchors, the top tether anchor. In a crash, the child could be seriously injured or killed. Secure any unused safety belts behind the child restraint so children cannot reach them. Pull the shoulder belt all the way out of the retractor to set the lock, if your vehicle has one, after the child restraint has. Refer to the child restraint instructions and the following steps: 2.1. Find the top tether anchor. 2.2. Securing a Child Restraint in a Rear Seat Position If your child restraint has the LATCH system,. A rear seat is a safer place to secure a forward-facing child restraint. See Where to Put the Restraint on page 51. In addition, if your vehicle has a passenger airbag status indicator, your vehicle has the passenger sensing system. It is better to secure the child restraint in a rear seat. If you need to secure a forward-facing child restraint in the right front seat position, move the seat as far back as it will go before securing. The child restraint instructions will show you how. 4. Buckle the belt.

Make sure the release button is positioned so you would be able to unbuckle the safety belt quickly if you ever had to. Your vehicle may also have roof-mounted side impact airbags. Roof-mounted side impact airbags are available for the driver and the passenger seated directly behind the driver and for the right front passenger and the passenger seated directly behind that passenger. And, for some unrestrained occupants, frontal airbags may provide less protection in frontal crashes than more forceful airbags have provided in. Airbags plus lap-shoulder belts offer the best protection for adults, but not for young children and infants. Neither the vehicle’s safety belt system nor its airbag system is designed for them. The driver’s frontal airbag is in the middle of the steering wheel. The right front passenger’s frontal airbag is in the instrument panel on the passenger’s side. If your vehicle has a roof-mounted side impact airbag for the right front passenger and the person directly behind that passenger, it is located in the ceiling above the side windows. Do not put anything between an occupant and an airbag, and do not attach or put anything on the steering wheel hub or on or near any. In an impact of sufficient severity, the airbag sensing system detects that the vehicle is in a crash.Some components of the airbag module —. The driver’s airbags are not part of the passenger sensing system. The passenger sensing system works with sensors that are part of the right front passenger’s seat and safety belt. It is better to secure the child restraint in a rear seat.When the passenger sensing system has allowed the airbag to be enabled, the on indicator will light and stay lit to remind you that the airbag is active. There are parts of the airbag system in several places around your vehicle. Your dealer and the service manual have information about servicing your vehicle and the airbag system. Look for any other loose or damaged safety belt system parts.

If you see anything that might keep a safety belt system from doing its job, have it repaired. A damaged restraint system may not properly protect the person using it, resulting in serious injury or even death in a crash. To help make sure your restraint systems are working properly after a crash, have them inspected and any necessary replacements made as. They could operate the power windows or other controls or even make the vehicle move. The children or others could be badly injured or even killed. Do not leave the keys in a vehicle with children. This is normal for any RKE system.See “Remote Vehicle Start” later in this section for more detailed information. These exterior lamps will stay on for 20 seconds, or until a door is opened. The battery is weak if the transmitter will not work at the normal range in any location. If you have to get close to your vehicle before the transmitter works, it is probably time to change the battery. Use one three-volt, CR2032, or equivalent, type battery. 3. Snap the front and back together tightly so moisture will not get inside the transmitter. 4. To start the vehicle using the remote start feature, do the following: 1. Aim the transmitter at the vehicle. 2. When a door is locked, the handle will not open it. You increase the chance of being thrown out of the vehicle in a crash if the doors are not locked. The locks are located on the driver’s and front passenger’s door armrest. Driver’s Switch shown, Front Passenger’s Switch similar Press the side of the switch with the lock symbol to lock the doors. This is the right side for the driver’s switch and the left side for the front passenger’s switch. The automatic door locking feature cannot be disabled. CAUTION: It can be dangerous to drive with the trunk lid open because carbon monoxide (CO) gas can come into your vehicle. You cannot see or smell CO. See Instrument Panel Overview on page 138 or Driver’s Storage Compartment on page 133.

They can be overcome by the extreme heat and suffer permanent injuries or even death from heat stroke. Never leave a child, a helpless adult, or a pet alone in a vehicle, especially with the windows closed in warm or hot weather. Power Windows If your vehicle has power windows, the switches on the driver’s door armrest control each of the windows. Sedan Shown, Coupe Similar In addition, each passenger’s door has a window switch that controls that door’s window. The visors can also be detached from the center mount and swung to the side to cover the windows. Visor Vanity Mirror Your vehicle may have a driver’s side vanity mirror. If the system is armed and the trunk is opened using the trunk release button on the transmitter, the system will temporarily disarm itself and re-arm when the trunk has been closed. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: 1. At this time, you may also want to check the fuse, see Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 379. If the engine still does not start with the other key, your vehicle needs service. Use the correct key and turn the key only with your hand. Make sure the key is all the way in. If it is, turn the steering wheel left and right while you turn the key hard. You may not be able to start your vehicle if the battery is allowed to drain for an extended period of time. (START): This position starts the engine. Remove the key. Have your vehicle serviced at your GM dealer as soon as possible. Your engine will not start in any other position -- this is a safety feature. To restart when you are already moving, use NEUTRAL (N) only. Notice: Shifting into PARK (P) with the vehicle moving could damage the transaxle. Wait at least 15 seconds between each try, to allow the cranking motor to cool down. There are several different positions for the automatic transaxle. PARK (P): This position locks your front wheels. It is the best position to use when you start your engine because your vehicle cannot move easily.

If you cannot shift out of PARK (P), ease pressure on the shift lever and push the shift lever all the way into PARK (P) as you maintain brake application. The repairs would not be covered by your warranty. Be sure the engine is not running at high speeds when shifting your vehicle. DRIVE (D): This position is for normal driving with the automatic transaxle. Here is how to operate your manual transaxle: FIRST (1): Press the clutch pedal and shift into FIRST (1). Then, slowly let up on the clutch pedal as you press the accelerator pedal.For vehicles with the 2.0L Supercharged engine, press down the clutch pedal. Then, lift up the ring on the shift lever below the shift knob and shift into REVERSE (R). For vehicles equipped with an armrest, lift the console armrest in order to access the parking brake lever.

If you have left the engine running, the vehicle can move suddenly. Do not park over papers, leaves, dry grass, or other things that can burn. It contains the gas carbon monoxide (CO), which you cannot see or smell. It can cause unconsciousness and death.But if you ever have to, here are some things to know. CAUTION: Idling the engine with the climate control system off could allow dangerous exhaust into your vehicle. The lever is used to change the mirror from the day to the night position. To reduce glare from headlamps behind you while driving at night, pull the lever toward you. Move the selector switch located below the four-way control pad to the left or right to choose either the driver’s side or passenger’s side mirror. To adjust a mirror, use the arrows located on the four-way control pad to move the mirror in the desired direction.

If your airbags deploy, the system is designed to make an automatic call to OnStar Emergency advisors who can request emergency services be sent to your location. Hands-Free Calling may also be linked to a Verizon Wireless service plan, depending on eligibility. You will see it inside the back wall of the trunk. Put small loads behind the net. It can help keep them from falling over during sharp turns or quick starts and stops.They also let police know you have a problem.To tilt the wheel, pull down the lever. Then move the wheel to a comfortable position, pull up the lever to lock the wheel in place.These positions allow you to signal a turn or a lane change. To signal a turn, move the lever all the way up or down. Windshield Wipers Use this lever, located on the right side of the steering wheel, to operate the windshield wipers. If you want additional wiping cycles, hold the lever down longer. Damaged wiper blades may prevent you from seeing well enough to drive safely. To avoid damage, be sure to clear ice and snow from the wiper blades before using them. This can really help on long trips. CAUTION: Cruise control can be dangerous where you cannot drive safely at a steady speed. The exterior lamp switch has the following four positions: (Headlamps): Turn the switch to this position to turn on the headlamps, parking lamps, and taillamps. (Parking Lamps): Turn the switch to this position to turn on the parking lamps and taillamps only. For this feature to work, automatic lighting must be enabled. See Headlamps on page 148 for additional information. When the ignition is turned off, the wiper-activated headlamps will immediately turn off. The ignition must be on to turn your fog lamps on. Push the button to turn the fog lamps on. An indicator light on the cluster will come on when the fog lamps are on. This is true for all vehicles.

This is because the generator (alternator) may not be spinning fast enough at idle to produce all the power that is needed for very high electrical loads. If you experience a problem, see your dealer for additional information on the accessory power outlet. Notice: Adding any electrical equipment to your vehicle may damage it or keep other components from working as they should. Vehicles with Air Conditioning shown, without Air Conditioning similar Operation To change the current mode, select one of the following: (Vent): This mode directs air to the instrument panel outlets. An indicator light above the button will come on in this mode. The air conditioning compressor also comes on. This can be minimized if the climate control system is used properly. There are two modes to clear fog or frost from the windshield and side windows. If turned on again, the defogger will only run for about seven minutes before turning off. If the vehicle is moving faster than 50 mph (80 kph), the rear defogger will stay on. The pictures will help you locate them. Warning lights and gages can signal that something is wrong before it becomes serious enough to cause an expensive repair or replacement. You will know how fast you are going, about how much fuel is left in the tank, and many other things you will need to drive safely and economically. Your vehicle’s odometer works together with the driver information center. You can set a Trip A and Trip B odometer. See “Trip Information” under DIC Operation and Displays on page 178. This would only occur if the passenger airbag is enabled. Have your vehicle serviced right away. CAUTION: If the airbag readiness light stays on after you start your vehicle, it means the airbag system may not be working properly. See your dealer for service. CAUTION: If the off indicator and the airbag readiness light ever come on together, it means that something may be wrong with the airbag system.

When this light comes on, you should shift to the next higher gear if weather, road, and traffic conditions allow you to. This light is located in your instrument panel cluster to the left of the tachometer. The light will stay on if your parking brake does not release fully. If it stays on after your parking brake is fully released, it means you have a brake problem. If this happens you should pull over and turn off the engine as soon as possible. See Engine Overheating on page 303 for more information. Notice: Driving with the engine coolant temperature warning light on could cause your vehicle to overheat. This could lead to costly repairs that may not be covered by your warranty. If so, be sure to fuel your vehicle with quality fuel. See Gasoline Octane on page 277. Poor fuel quality will cause your engine not to run as efficiently as designed.This indicates that your engine is not receiving enough oil. The engine could be low on oil, or could have some other oil problem. Fog Lamp Light If equipped, the fog lamps light will come on when the fog lamps are in use. The light will go out when the fog lamps are turned off. This gage is automatically centered at zero every time the ignition is turned to RUN. Actual vacuum or boost is displayed from this zero point. Changes in ambient pressure, such as driving in mountains and changing weather, will slightly change the zero reading.

Store them in their original cases or other protective cases and away from direct sunlight and dust. The CD player scans the bottom surface of the disc. If the surface of a CD is damaged, such as cracked, broken, or scratched, the CD will not play properly or not at all. Please start with a very important safety device in your vehicle: Buckle up. See Safety Belts: They Are for Everyone on page 18. CAUTION: Defensive driving really means “Be ready for anything.”. It is the number one contributor to the highway death toll, claiming thousands of victims every year.All drivers are impaired at BAC levels above 0.05 percent. They are the brakes, the steering, and the accelerator. All three systems have to do their work at the places where the tires meet the road. Some people drive in spurts — heavy acceleration followed by heavy braking — rather than keeping pace with traffic. This is a mistake. The brakes may not have time to cool between hard stops. The brakes will wear out much faster if you do a lot of heavy braking. Suddenly, an animal jumps out in front of you. You slam on the brakes and continue braking. Here is what happens with ABS: A computer senses that wheels are slowing down. If one of the wheels is about to stop rolling, the computer will separately work the brakes at each wheel. If you get too close to the vehicle in front of you, you will not have time to apply your brakes if that vehicle suddenly slows or stops. This is especially useful in slippery road conditions.
