    Hello, 2012 Cruze LT owner. 120k miles. I am trying bypass my check engine light so my automatic (factory) car starter will work. I've had the check engine light problem fixed by the garage. It was the P0299 Engine Under Boost. However the code keeps appearing. I took it back to the garage...

    HEEELLLPPP!!!!! My 2012 Cruze Eco will not engage the starter bendix and I can't figure out why! This is the 3rd starter and GM original part. It overheated and died (from over flow hose coming off.) Then when we tried to start it again the starter would spin but not engage the flywheel. I...

    Hello all. My wife has a 2012 Chevy Cruze LS. it has not been driven for the last 5 days. When she went to start it it was dead. So I attempted to jump start it, but when I connected the jumper cables, it started turning over without the key in it. Anyone heard of anything like this before...

    Hello everyone, I just purchased a 2013 Cruze LS with the 1.8L engine (68k miles) 6-speed manual transmission yesterday. I tested the car and it was great! After I drove it home and let it sit for 2 hours I started it up and it made a grinding noise with a clunk for a second after starting. No...

    I have a 2012 chevy cruze LT. Been having this problem. Something is causing the fuse that's on top of the battery to blow and after it goes, the starter goes out. What could be the cause??

    Car was running perfectly fine! Do my daily 35 miles to, and back home-work traffic. After my shift, I want to start my car, but all I heard was a 'click'. Tried it again, same thing. Opened the hood, tried it again, same thing. Just 'click'.. Electronics are all fine, no fuse blown; no error...

  13. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi all. 2012 Eco that just passed 100k miles. On starting, immediately after the engine turns over (starts running), I have a second or so of metallic grinding/chatter. This has been going on for a little while, and is worse in the cold. Less of an issue after the car is warm, but still...

    2012 Cruze Eco I have had this car for 5+ years. I am one of those guys who listens to the starter motor humming and starts the car after the humming stops. Yesterday, I noticed that the humming does not stop. If I leave the key in position 2, the humming goes on until I turn the ignition to...

    So I have been using my starter in my 2012 Cruze as its been getting quite frosty. For some reason, even though I have my heater controls turned on when I use the starter none of the control lights are on like the yellow light on the defrost button. Am I doing something wrong?

    Hi, I'm thinking of putting in aftermarket heated seats (the $30-50 sheet ones on Amazon) for the driver seat and wanted to make them run when the remote starter is used. For that, what fuse should I tap into? Hopefully I don't have to go all the way to the fuse block in the engine compartment...
