    Hey all, So my hood latch cable broke and I tried everything to get my hood open before I took it to the dealership. The service manager told me today it will cost $698 to replace the cable! Seems steep? He said it was difficult for them to initially open the hood because of the need to...

    Im feeling really stupid right now. I was trying to accomplish several things tonight on our 2013 chevy cruze. Started of changing the belt tensioner and belt. I got that finished and i moved onto installing the new hood latch. Installed the latch then shut the hood to see if that fuxed the...

    I can only open my trunk with the key fob now. The botton completely stopped working on the tailgate. I noticed it one day where it bearly worked...then the next it completely stopped working. What would have happened? I always park my car indoors too.

    Have 15 Diesel and the trunk latch was getting lazy, at first I thought it was extreme cold, well it’s worse now really won’t open. Wouldn’t be a huge deal but I have 13500 miles on since I added DEF. the 35% indicator has not displayed yet which seems odd. I drive lot of highway miles. Anyone...

    My neighbors hood will not lock shut. He popped the hood and it will not lock down. I have found quite a few problems like this but none of Chevy Cruze when searching. I manually used a small crow bar to push down on the assembly under the hood, but it will not engage. Everything looks intact...

    I have about 1,100 miles on my 17' Premier and have a bit of an annoying problem with it involving closing the doors. We also have a 17 LT. On the Premier when it is warm outside, and the car interior has heated up, you literally have to slam the doors really hard to get them to latch. This...

    Hi everyone. This is my second winter with my Cruze and, once again, we are finding that in our winter weather, (wind, snow), we are unable to open the trunk (or close it, if we happen to get it open). We took it to service and, of course, it worked because it was inside the shop. After driving...

    Hey everyone, I have a 2012 1LT RS Cruze and recently moved to northern Utah in the mountain. This morning when I got in my car it was 14 degrees and when I went to shut my door, it just bounced back open. I checked to make sure the latch wasn't in the closed position and tried shutting it...

    Trunk Latch will not open WITH FOB OR BUTTON. Today I disconnected my battery. It was off for at least an hour while i ran wires to my new amp and sub woofer. after it was all wired I had to reconnect the battery to open the trunk to test the system and it opened like normal. After 30 minutes...

    does anybody have trouble with the trunk coming open? there have been times when I leave work that my trunk is open...has done it several times lately. I got home this evening and went out two hrs later to an open trunk. The electric latch above licence plate quit working a year ago and I've...

    My trunk latch hasn't been working for a while, but I'm still able to use the release button my keys. I recently noticed that my right license plate bulb was out so I replaced the bulb today. Even with a new bulb, it doesn't work. So now I'm thinking the trunk latch is associated with the...

    Does anyone know how to treat and remove the spotted surface rust on the door latch strikers in the door jamb areas? What type of metal are these made out of? If prefer to restore them if possible as opposed to buying new ones, so don't suggest that. If someone at least knows what kind of metal...

    A few days ago, we discovered that the trunk on our 2011 Cruze LS would not open with either the key button or the rear trunk latch. The doors were unlocked and the keys were not in the ignition but it would not open by either method. Today, someone stopped my wife to tell her the brake lights...

    Not sure if this is in the proper section but here goes: The other morning, as the temperature was below (-5C), I couldn't open my trunk because the button was frozen solid. This was after a period of wet snow/rain with overnight freezing temperatures. Some of the seals around the door were...

    Lately, my trunk latch button has not been working. I can still open the trunk with the key button, but the button above the license plate has been working less and less. I certainly plan on having it check by the dealer as a warranty issue, but I am curious if anyone else has this issue and...
