Where is the ignition fuse for the 2003 Chevy Cobalt?

The owner's manual says, to flat tow, remove the ignition fuse.

The problem is that the fuse diagram in the owner manual and on the kick panel cover doesn't match the fuse block. I have pulled fuses and the motor still starts and warning lights illuminate.

Would someone please enlighten me?

Thanks
Dave

On mine, not a '03, the "ignition fuse" is in the "fuse/relay panel/box" under the hood.

Maybe a 2003 owner will chime in, but on my 2009 Cobalt it is fuse #8 a 2 amp. located in the panel at the passengers feet. This is per my owner manual.
I am going to put together a switch/fuse so I can select tow/run without pulling fuses. Letme know if you are interested.

I finally found it at the passenger feet.

The owner manual diagram has is way off. GM's attention to detail is less than stellar! Probably one of many reasons their product suffers, especially the ignition switch problem.

"Built Like A Rock" has become "Sinks Like A Stone". This is my last GM product!

That's where my 09 HHR had the #8 fuse.

I have recently encountered another problem. Has anyone had a problem with the ignition switch refusing to turn to the off position and release the key?

Research online revealed that you must remove a small panel beneath the steering column and press a small white button to release the key. What is it with GM? Bankruptcy obsession?

If you have the fuse out that is what happens???

To you previous--I put a manual switch on the fuse so I don't have to pull it each time.

Nope, doesn't matter whether fuse is in or out.

Just a thought. Try to disconnect your battery for a reset On mine battery is in the tire compartment in the trunk. (If u can believe that) !!

On my 2009 Chev Cobalt automatic trans, if the transmission is in anything but park, you cannot turn past acc mode, key will not come out. This is for safety.
And I also installed a switch for fuse #8, but has nothing to do with the above statement.
