  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    I've been trying to chase this electrical issue for months now. When I'm driving the screen shows anywhere from 11-15v depending on if I'm on the gas or not. When I'm at idle it slowly drops to 12 or below. The headlights and dome light also are dimming and flickering very bad, so much so that...

    Two weeks ago I was driving my 2013 1.4 turbo Cruze. Lost power and just died. No lights or codes came on. So we replaced the fuel pump because we couldn’t hear it kicking in when trying to start. Still did not start after we replaced it. Took it to a dealer replaced the battery it started right...

  5. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    Hello everyone, Let me start off by saying I'm a big audio noob. I am clearly a beginner and just bought myself a Chevy Cruze 2017 LT with the stock stereo system (no bose). I really love the head unit and wanted to keep it as I love the carplay feature. I've been wanting to add in my subs from...

  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze LT and today while cleaning the negative battery terminal with a battery brush, the ground wire that is bolted to the terminal broke off. It was very flimsy and makes me wonder how it held up all along. Can that wire be replaced without going to a mechanic and I...

My friend drives a 2014 Cruze LT and has been having the car die on and off sporadically for weeks/months now, usually while she's at work or in the morning after the car has sat overnight. She reports to me that the check engine light has been on but when it runs...
  14. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hello. I bought a '14 diesel about a year and a half ago. It's been an awesome car. I haven't had any issues with it until a couple weeks ago. One night after I got out of work, the car cranked pretty slow, but started just fine. It was around -7F at the time. Over the next week, the car started...
  15. Gen2 Service Issues
    Greetings. I have a Cruze Hatch, one of the earliest delivered, in late November 2016. The last two times I've started it, it's been cold, say, in the single digits F. And, 'Service Stabilitrak' has showed for a second or two immediately after the startup. Does this mean I'm going to be...

    Hi all. I am new here. I apologize if I am posting in the wrong place. I have a 2012 LT/RS, manual transmission. I ended up with a check engine light and almost immediate misfiring and stalling at idle. I read the codes and it was reading for the MAP, MAF, and fuel imbalance. I replaced the...

    Just replaced the battery in my 2014 . Second battery since the car was new. 217000 miles. It’s showing 14.8 to 15.1 amps on the DIC. What is normal. I miss not having a amp battery gauge and the screen usually stays on the fuel mileage screen. So shame on me for not knowing the normal range...

    My battery is about 4 years old so I decided to replace it. This time, I went with a LiFePO4 battery. It only weighs ~4.5 pounds and should last ten years. I think this is a no-brainer upgrade for anybody who wants a lighter car or just wants a battery that will last forever. Here's a link to...
