    Fuel pump problems in 2012 cruze

    I just had this happen to me on my 2012 cruze the check engine light came on and then I got 6 codes all indicating that the fuel pump has failed. The car only has 29k miles is not driven often and this seems like a defect to me because at such a low mileage for this to happen seems like it has defective parts. Mechanics
    I have spoken to have said that this should not happen at 29K miles

    Fuel pump problems in 2012 cruze

    My 2012 cruze only has 29K miles it is rarely driven and I got these codes PO627 PO23f PO25A PO69E all indicating that there is a failure in the fuel pump module. I have taken it to Chevy dealership and have not heard back about issue. But for a car with such low milage this should not be an issue. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if it was covered by the powertrain warranty.

    I think you're out of luck on that one. Reading the powertrain warranty, it's specifically excluded.

    While it shouldn't happen, it can happen. In your case the car is over five years old and time does deteriorate parts. This is why warranties have both time and mileage limits. Fortunately the fuel pump isn't that expensive and any decent mechanic should be able to drop the tank and swap out the pump.

    While it's nice to keep the miles off the car. It's also the hardest abuse a car can suffer.

    In 1994 i bought a 78 Buick skylark. Grandma car. Had 70k miles. Car drove perfect on short trips. But when i took it for a roadtrip the first weekend i had it. Tranny started slipping in 3rd gear. 50 miles from home. Had to limp it back home in second gear. Fortunately, the trans was a TH350. Pretty common trans and i was a mechanic. Labor was free and trans was cheap. Dealer i bought it from paid for half the trans.

    update it is the fuel module and even the mechanic is saying it should not have happened with such low milage. Trying to work with GM now to see if they will cover the part or even partially cover because repair is going to cost me 600 dollars if they do nothing

    We actually have a thread here on how to drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump in the tank. If you have a lift and the right tools it's not that difficult a job - most of the quoted $600 is labor.

    Is it the fuel pump driver module or the fuel pump assembly? $600 sounds expensive either way.

    There are plastic baffle/supports, that are spring loaded inside tank. They come loose and get under the sending unit float. This will show you still have fuel and set ALL these codes. Horrible design and Chevy should be doing a recall soon.
