  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    How can I check to make sure all glow plugs in an engine are functioning properly? Does the ECU display any error messages? Yesterday (during the polar vortex) it was -20°F when I started my car to leave from work. The starter engaged for a good 3-4 seconds and then the starter continued to...
  2. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    ‘14 CTD, 87K miles, cold start, ambient temp 50F, dry conditions. Had my first CEL, code P0671 per ScanGauge II. Cleared the code with the SG, did not return. Did another cold start this morning, no CEL. Could be #1 glow plug starting to fail, wiring fault, glow plug module...or perhaps just...
  3. Cruze Owner Projects
    I'm sure this gets posted so many times here. This is I believe my second post here. I am very interested in redoing all of the lights in my 2015 Cruze LTZ RS, it is Red so I would like the lighting inside to be Red, the dome lights I can handle (I decided to keep the map lights white but...
  4. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I have been reading around the forums about the p20b9 code. The dealership is telling me its the glow plug module and it needs to be replaced, and of course it's not covered under the warranty. From what I have seen here most people are having their reservoir or tank heater replaced with this...

    Seems like I've read somewhere the glow plugs on our Cruzes are supposed to last 100K miles. I'm at 165K and still on the originals. I have noticed the past couple days when remote starting, it sounds a bit different for the first few seconds. I may just be overanalyzing. :) Either way, Can...

    I just took delivery of my 2014 Cruze Diesel today, and was digging through the service records he provided me. During the test drive, he mentioned something about a problem with the turbo that was dealt with under warranty, and I found this entry (I'm guessing he just got the terminology...

    I want to install a set of LED GLow's 12" million color interior LEDs in the 14 Cruze. Before I order, I need to know what type of fuses are in the interior fuse panel and which one to tap into? I am going to order an expandable circuit (fuse tap) so I need to know what size...ATC, micro, mini...
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    Guys, Need urgent help! It all started when I was at a stop signal and my car jerked a few times and the glow lamp signal came on the dashboard when the car jerked. I had driven for 7 odd kms, so would imagine that the car was at optimal temperature and no signal was being sent to glow lamps...
  9. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Hello all! So last week I posted about a random CEL that appeared then cleared within 2 days. The CEL came back on yesterday and today the dealer says a bad glow plug is causing it. They're ordering one in for next week. Has anyone else experienced a bad glow plug? I have 47,000 km (29,000 mi)...
  10. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hey guys, quick question. I turn the car to the on acc position and let it sit there for about 5 seconds before starting but i have not noticed any glow plug wait light. My only other experience with diesels is military humvees which have a wait light and then you can start when it goes out...
  11. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I read somewhere that the glow plugs have about a 100K mile expected lifespan in the Cruze. Has anybody thought about when they plan to replace them? I am coming up on the 100K mark quickly but not sure if I should consider that a maintenance item at the 100K mark or hold off. I'd like to hear...
  12. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    First of all have a nice new year everyone, noticed yesterday that after the car is started the check engine and glow plug warning in dash is lit but very low, kind of dimmed, don't know if it's an electric trouble or it's the cluster backlight that iluminates those warnings. It's been cold...
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi I have installed this gauge in my 2013 cruze eco. I was wondering if i can tap into the longer green and black vacuum line instead of the short one(which is almost kinked). My second question is where can I find a wire to tie my dimmer wire for the gauge in. Any information is useful to me...
