    Hi,

    I am having a similiar problem with my Cruze 2011. In my case the Check Engine Light has turned 5 times after recall 12081 (removal of section of bottom engine shield or belly pan). The 5 times that this situation has occurred is when it is or has rained. I am very sure that the water that is now getting into the engine compartment (because of recall 12081) is what is causing the check engine light to turn on. The car's manual does state that moistue/ water is a probable cause.

    Did you have recal 12081 performed and by any chance was it raining when the check engine indicator went on? Please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Nelly

    Can't tell if trolling...

    If not, best place to start is your dealer

    Once on start up. This was following a 180 mile trip the evening before. Recall for splash sheild has not been done. I happened to have a code reader in my glove box and it indicated bank 1 lean. Cleared the code and have driven 200+ miles since and no recurrence yet.

    Nelly,
    I would suggest that you take your Cruze into your dealer to have them look into this for you. They are in the best position to get this issue taken care of for you. Please keep me posted on this. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to contact me anytime.
    Thank you,
    Stacy Chevrolet Customer Service

    I have this issue. I did have the recall done but my check engine light just started coming on at 38560 miles less than 2000 miles out of warranty. Rain does not appear to be a factor here, although humidity is high. Code is P0171 fuel system running extremely lean.
