  1. Cabin Fan Blower Woes. Help?

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    i was hoping it wouldnt be too complicated. im going to reach my fingers in and i might take a can of compressed air and see if i can angle it down in enough to maybe knock whatever it is loose. if i have to take it apart to get to the fan/motor, does anyone have any experience with this? just...
  2. Cabin Fan Blower Woes. Help?

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    So, I recently decided to try and save a few bucks and change my cabin air filter myself. This change was looong overdue, as it's a 2011 cruze LT, with what I'm assuming is the original filter. It was really clogged with leaves and dust, and I think when I took it out some debris may have fallen...
  3. Best Head Unit Discussion!

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Does anyone know if it's possible to retain all of the vehicle controls? I don't mean the steering wheel volume/track skip controls, I mean things like the clock, autovolume, etc. I've heard there's an adapter out there, but I've been unable to find it, and I'm unsure how it works.
  4. Door speaker upgrade W/amp

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Well, the 5 channel I sent the link to you for is $250 on eBay. It may sound pricey up front, but if you consider the fact that you believe you could get $50 for your old sub, it would bring the cost down to be inline with the rockford. Rockford is a good brand from everything I've heard, but...
  5. Door speaker upgrade W/amp

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Of course! (http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/36-audio-electronics/35041-replacing-stock-tweeters.html) Here's a link to my page installing the tweeters. Like I said, it's not very big or good at all, but it's the only one I've ever done so I wasn't sure what I was doing :P anywho, hot glue would...
  6. Door speaker upgrade W/amp

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I used these: (http://www.amazon.com/Polk-Audio-DB6501-6-5-Inch-Component/dp/B000P0R6LQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1425495109&sr=8-1&keywords=polk+component+speakers+6.5) Obviously, everyone has different tastes. The product I enjoy some may hate. I love them and thought the price was fair. Less...
  7. Need some help with sound system.

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    very interesting read. i'm going to talk to my dealership about it next friday. thank you! i totally understand where you're coming from with not wanting to cut into wires and all that. keep in mind, the PAC adapter would be your best option for not cutting into a ton of wires...
  8. Need some help with sound system.

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Me too! Just out of curiosity, is there anything specific you're trying to do, like install a new sound system or something, or just trying to learn more about the car?
  9. Several questions on the CD player (or whatever it's called)

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Oh, I totally get that. I'd hate having to plug in my cable everytime too! But actually, you don't have to do that. Like I said, the phone stays in your pocket the whole time, unless you're searching for a specific song. Once you pair your phone with the receiver, you just leave bluetooth...
  10. Several questions on the CD player (or whatever it's called)

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Good find! I don't think it's fake, but I definitely don't think it'll work for you. It looks to me like it's literally the USB port. The actual wiring that would need to be in place from the factory headunit to the armrest to connect the USB still isn't there I don't think. And that's assuming...
  11. 2013 1.4t slight jerk when accelerating after coasting

    Gen1 Powertrain
    Haha well, you're not alone! I haven't done a flush yet, but I'm about 40k now so I probably will soon. I don't think it'll help our problem though. My car has always done it, even with much lower miles. As far as octane, I've noticed that it changes the way the engine runs significantly. The...
  12. 2013 1.4t slight jerk when accelerating after coasting

    Gen1 Powertrain
    This perfectly describes what my Cruze does as well. I have a 2011 1.4t LT. From coasting, it "kicks", unless i kind of "ease into" the gas pedal and give it a chance to sort itself out. It's especially annoying if I'm approaching a red light, and it changes to green prior to me needing to come...
  13. Can Anyone Confirm that this Remote Start Kit on Amazon is the Real Deal?

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    interesting! im really glad i asked before buying it, seeing how theres something else id need. what exactly is the "update (flash link) module"? i've never heard of it. im fairly experienced with vehicle electronics, but this is new to me. is it expensive, and is it difficult? what exactly am i...
  14. Can Anyone Confirm that this Remote Start Kit on Amazon is the Real Deal?

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Came accross this on Amazon. Amazon.com: Add Remote Start To Your Chevy Camaro, Cruze, Equinox 2010 & Up. Plug & Play: Electronics with winter coming fast, something as simple as this claims to be is a very attractive product. Seems a little too good to be true though. Just wondered if anyone...
  15. Strange XM Radio Function on 2011 Cruze Question. Please Help!

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Ok, I have a question I've seen multiple answers to, and I'm trying to get a clear answer once and for all. I have a 2011 Cruze 1LT. It has no USB port, OnStar or Bluetooth built-in. It is definitely the more basic model of radio. I always assumed that bluetooth, USB and XM radio were features...
