    Alright to save you time, I stupidly left something on and drained my new AGM H7 battery dead on the 2012 Cruze Eco. Now that everything is charged back up, the radio and radio displays are completely dead. Nothing. I will note that when I took the passenger seat out and ran an errand, the radio...

    Previously, Infotainment center (radio) display had to be replaced. Yesterday, while driving down the road, the center display area between the tach and the analog speedometer went blank. Tried shutting car off for 5 minutes, then re-starting. Also tried disconnecting the battery for 5...

    Any help would be appreciated. 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...

I would like to keep the board with the eprom so I wouldn't have to program a replacement radio but that is the board the main harness...

    Hi everyone, I've read a ton of these forums for DIY car service, but never posted. I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze LTZ with 125k miles (completely out of warranty). Lots of problems with this car... but here to talk about the touchscreen radio today. My radio was acting up for a year - it appeared...

    Hi all, My Cruze not only has to have the water pump replaced due to leaking and spilling coolant all over the place, now phone call from dealership shows that my engine oil cooler is leaking as well. That's right, four year old; 62,000 mile; still under powertrain warranty Cruze is in need of...

    I have read on here that you can unfortunately install a new harmonic balancer in a 180 degrees from its original position. I unfortunately did not line up my markings before I pulled the bloody thing off. So I basically took the spark plug out of number 1 put a socket extension in it and...

    I have a 2013 cruze with a now dead mylink system. The car has over 100k miles but the problem began at around 60k something and was around that time it was taken to the dealer. So it began acting flaky when you would go in reverse and the screen would just go black instead of the camera coming...

    Ok, I just went out to start my 2015 Cruze 2LT after having it sit for a couple of weeks. The battery was at 2.9 volts, using a good calibrated Fluke digital multi-meter. The car is not even a year old, maybe 9 months. How do I impress upon the local dealer that a new battery needs to be put in...

  15. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Wound up kinda confused. So I get the trim piece out of the car and see this: The trunk switch is covered with some sort of epoxy. Can't for the life of me get it out, the sealant is rock hard. Every reference online says that shouldn't be there. So I run to the Chevy dealership to see...

    So, I'd like to start this thread out by saying that my sister bought her 2012 Cruze 2LT RS 1.4T Auto almost three years ago with 26,000 miles. It now has 85,000 miles and has had more problems with overheating than I'd like to count. This car has stranded her on the side of the road not once...

    As some of you may remember, I had a dead battery (as discussed in this thread) after my 2014 Cruze sat parked in the garage for 8 days. After a visit to the dealer, everything checked out. As an experiment, I then let the car sit for 8 days again, and this time it started up fine. I chalked...

    Hi Guys, So my car died at a stop light in the middle of a 4 lane 55mph highway outside of Detroit. I figured it was something electrical because it all the check engine lights were cycling like crazy, the car wouldn't even crank, and cars that stopped next to me asked me to put my blinker on...
