    Hi Everyone! This issue deals with Key Fobs. I bought a fob housing that included a blank key but no electronics. When I tried to transfer my existing key to it I found that the notches for the button were slightly different and thus didn't allow the button to fully seat and thus wouldn't click...

    Has anyone found/tried a smaller remote fob for our cruze to replace the bulky heavy one it comes with? ...maybe from another gm vehicle that will work?

    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, So the other night when I went to get into my car, my key fob would not unlock my car. That was weird cause the lights would flash when I pressed unlock button but doors would not unlock. I used key to open door and when I turned on the car, my head lamps would not come on! I decided to...

    I have a 2014 Chevy Cruze diesel and for quite a while I have been getting error messages about the TPMS system and also security messages and the key fob no longer works. I am not certain but I think this may have started around the time I replacedd the windshield. My understanding is that the...

    Frustrating! I just bought a 15 Cruze Eco, manual trans. I usually press lock or unlock twice to get a horn chirp or unlock all my doors. BUT, I can only get one command to go through, then have to wait 3-4 seconds before the car will lock or unlock a second time. I work at a Chevy...

    My daughter lost the key fob to her 2014 Cruze in the parking lot of her apartment complex. The other "non vehicle" keys were turned into lost and found. She is now afraid someone will walk through the lot clicking the fob until they find her Cruze and steal it. Question: Can the dealer...

    I have a 2016 cruze LT and the dealer told me that the autostart isn't fully compatible with the car so I can't start my car using the mychevrolet app. They also told me the model of autostart is a new model by gm at the time a year ago when I got the car, And that it's normal that when I...

    I have seen OEM key fobs for around $20 on Amazon and or eBay. Could a dealer not only program it but also cut the key? I think getting these from the dealer are quite expensive.

    It'll still work. I did laundry, took out wallet and cash. Spaced off fob. Did a complete laundry cycle. Thought for sure it'd be short circuited. And i was gonna have to buy a new one.

    Saturday, both of our key fobs stopped working. 2012 model. Today (Monday) mine worked for two hours, to lock and unlock the car a few times. Now, not working again. Any ideas? Thanks

    Hello, I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze with standard 4 button Key fob. Awhile ago the joint section that held the key into the key fob broke off across the edge. So now.... I just have a loose key and a fob. And since the end piece broke off all the way.... they're no longer connected. (Very...

    Bought a 2012 Eco model from shady dealership a couple weeks ago. It only came with one spare key, its not even the original GM. I bought some replacement fobs with the key built in but I'm only interested in the fob part as I don't want to go get it cut (right now at least) Is there a way I...

    I had the windshield replaced in my 2013 Cruze. Now my tire pressure sensor doesn't work nor do my key fobs. It's my understanding there is a transmitter in the black box behind the rear view mirror. Any help would be most appreciated.

    Hey, guys! New to the Chevy Cruze world and had a question that I'm hoping you guys can answer. My girlfriend and I just went in on a used '14 Cruze LT for my work commuter and our overall city car, however, they didn't have both sets of keys. I've never had to replace a fob and I need to get...

    I am looking at having a couple of key fob copies made and I would like to program them at home. I did this with my old Cobalt,but I'm having trouble finding the procedure for a new cruze. (And the dealer wants 60 bucks apiece to do it.)

    Wondering about backup methods..... Do you guys just get extra fobs made and hide them somewhere? Or maybe use the phone app and some kind of wallet key? My wife is a master-level key loser. And I hate these fobs. They look custom-made to get lost.
