    Hello folks So I have a 2012 chevy cruze that I have had for the last 7 years. I have used the same key since day one and just recently as of yesterday the alarm goes of when ever I unlock or lock the car with the remote. I'm forced to use the key to lock and unlock the car. I have looked...

    So my key fob took a dump on me. Made the terrible mistake of buying one off amazon. So I thought I would just take the key part off and just use it and lock\unlock the door with the key. Problem is that the alarm system goes off when I open the door.....each time. So, until I can sort out the...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2014 Holden Cruze SRi here in Aus, and I've had 2 break-ins recently where the alarm didn't go off for either. The car was locked on both occasions, with the red light on the dash lit up when the 'alarm' is activated. The first time the doors and boot were left open...

    Hello! New to the forum. Been browsing and couldn't find my answer so figured I'd register and post. I'm wondering if anyone has any idea as to what this alarm is? I checked the manual, I checked online, etc... can't figure it out. I bought the car a couple weeks ago, and it wasn't doing it at...

    Car will randomly report door is ajar ( cant recall which door the indicator is saying) while driving, the issue comes and goes. Car alarm will randomly go off just sitting in the parking lot. From what ive read this seems to be a door ajar switch issue, fixed by replacing the door latch...

    I noticed that my keys refuse to open my cruze 2010 doors and the tailgate. I can only open the doors manually and cannot open the tail gate at all. Pls I need clarification on how to go about this

    Can anyone tell me how to disable the car alarm in my 2013 Cruze LS? Long story short, the driver's side door seems to have a problem where it will at 100% random be detected as being "open." Doesn't matter if I'm driving or if it's parked. Took it to the Chevy dealer service center who charged...

    So, my alarm has started acting up for no apparent reason. Doors locked, no one around, remote on keyhook, and alarm goes off. Never happened before, happened 3 or 4 times this evening. Checked all doors, trunk, hood, etc... Good weather, warm and dry. Any ideas why this might happen? I have had...

    Recently, my Cruze started making a strange alarm sound. It is coming out of the center dash speaker, like the door chimes do. It has happened 3 times in the past couple of weeks. There are no lights or warnings on the dash or on the radio. I also plugged in the OBD scanner and there were no...

    Every time I shut down the car and open the door, the "Remote Left in Vehicle" Reminder comes on and starts beeping. This is before I even leave the car. And, yes, I have the remote in my pocket.

    I have a 2014 LS and was wondering if there was a way to set off my car alarm using the remote? I live in a not so great neighborhood and want to be able to scare people away from my car from inside the house. But when I hit the panic button it's not very loud, but the alarm is a lot louder. Any...

    My 2011 cruze eco's alarm will go off at any time while just sitting in the carport. Local dealer never heard of it before so I would like to troubleshoot before taking in for diagnostic. I have removed batt from some remotes but not all of them. Cannot find any info on power to alarm or where...

    The dealer tried to sell me an expanded alarm system when I purchased the Cruze. I didn't realize until later that the alarm was already installed and they just deactivated it. Today I finally got around to removing that hideous piece of garbage. They had tapped the wires into the wiring...

    I've heard a rapid beeping when I was about to cross into the lane to my left and there was a car right next to me in that lane that I didn't realize was there. This has happened twice. As far as I know, I don't have the side blind zone alarm (there's no indicator on my driver's side mirror). Is...

    This problem started only 2 days ago, but it's driving me crazy. The hood open warning goes off while driving, when the hood is not open. This morning the alarm was going off intermittently -would go off for 5 seconds, stop, and then start again. I unlocked the car just to make it stop. I've got...

    I just tried the Panic button for the first time and the Horn loudly honked? The Alarm that went off today seemed different, more like a shrill or alarm? I pressed it and it cleared but I wasn't sure it was mine? What does our alarm sound like, a loud dual horn honk or quieter annoying shriek?

    This is just another one of the many headaches this car has caused me. After starting the car and iding for a few minutes up came these alarms.I had the car towed to the dealership and they could not find a fix and told me the codes have been reset. $100. Today driving about 45k/hr it did...

    I have a 2011 Cruze LS. As we all know each trim has power windows and key fob wether its a base model or not. My question is do they all have alarms? If I hit the lock bottom twice, the horn makes a brief sound and a red light on the dash flickers until I unlock the car again. If I hit the...
