    "extra" Key Fob for 2011 Cruze

    ...for those interested in getting an "extra" remote ignition Key Fob for their Cruze, here's the GM information:

    .Part Number: 13500221
    .Description: Key, Code, and VIN#
    .........Bin: TEST
    List (price): $53.16

    ...you'll need to provide two pieces of information:

    1) the five-digit Code number (ie: Zxxxx) that's found on the black plastic hang-tags (with bar code) that came with the original Key Fobs.

    2) the cars' VIN (IE: 1G1PH5S97B7xxxxxx).

    ...because these "new" keys are laser-cut to rather tight tolerances, do NOT count of having them duplicated at your local hardware store!

    That's a great price! twothumbsup.gif Most key fobs are $80-$125 and those don't have a laser cut key in them.

    ...when we bought our LTZ, we immediately asked for three "accessories":

    • a spare Key Fob
    • a locking gas cap
    • a tire pump unit

    ...we're still waiting on the locking gas cap, with no locking mechnism, that 'cute' push-push door cover is way too "inviting" to gas thieves.

    ...actually, worse than simple "theft"!

    ...we had someone "punch" a hole in the gas tank of a Toyota pickup parking in front of our house and drain the tank...because it had a locking gas cap!!!

    ...so, you can NEVER win, just 'sometimes' break even.

    Most GM vehicles have a roll over ball in the neck, so that gas can't be siphoned out. But as stated if they want your gas they will just punch a hole in the tank and drain it out the bottom.

    either your gas prices in your area are absurdly high or you live in a really bad area. hopefully they dont do anything to your cruze. youre right about breaking even. if they want something bad enough they will take it no matter what. luckily my area is pretty safe. had my car unlocked a few times already and also once with the window completely down the whole night. there was so much they couldve taken easily including a expensive sound system but luckily nothing was touched when i woke up.

    Is this true?:
    "TIP: Starting in the 2011 model year, key fobs can only be programmed using a scan tool.

    In previous model years, it was possible to program key fobs for these vehicles using the vehicle's Driver Information Center (DIC), if equipped. Programming key fobs through the DIC is no longer an option on the 2011 model year vehicles."

    I know it's not true for the Volt. If you look at the user manual, there's a procedure listed there for programming additional keyfobs. You only need to have a dealer do it for you if you've lost all your fobs (or don't have at least two keyfobs if you're in Canada, for some reason).

    However, for the Cruze (for which there is only 2011 model year for the US anyway), it looks like a scan tool is the only way to go for programming.
