  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    I've been trying to chase this electrical issue for months now. When I'm driving the screen shows anywhere from 11-15v depending on if I'm on the gas or not. When I'm at idle it slowly drops to 12 or below. The headlights and dome light also are dimming and flickering very bad, so much so that...
  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    The electronic reading on my 2017 ls jumps anywhere from 12.7 to the 15.2 that is sitting at right now. First thought is the battery, I'm more wondering if the fluctuation is just normal for the vehicle.

    I have a 2014 LTZ and decided to upgrade the alternator to better power my amps. I had previously upgraded the battery to a duralast platinum H7, and done a big 3 upgrade with 1/0 wire. I purchased a 270 amp alternator from CES. They have been great to work with. When I first installed the...

    2014 Cruze TD 99k miles. This morning I remote start the car. It shuts off after 10 minutes because I'm slow, which isn't unusual. I get out there and manually start it and grab my scraper to clear off the ice from the window. As I'm pulling away I notice the FM radio does not work. It comes...

    Got a 2013 Cruze LT 2.4L. The charging system was acting up but never really had a battery light on. So I replaced the alternator. Now every time I start it up and look at the charging voltage it'll start at about 14.4 and then gradually go down. Sometimes for a while it'll stay at about 13.6...
  7. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello everyone! I purchased a 2011 Chevy Cruze Eco a couple weeks ago and loving it so far. Did a lot of research before purchasing the car to really know that this is the car that fits me best. It's economical, it looks sporty, equipped with a turbo, and not a **** Honda :) Mechanically...

    Could you post your battery voltage info please. I had my battery replaced a few days ago, went and fueled up and checked what it was sitting at, it was at 11.8v brand new battery after two 1 hour runs today and sitting for 5 mins. I have been using the car every day driving it at least a 1/2...

    I drove the car (2017 LS) about 300 miles this past week while observing the battery voltage. Most of the time at sustained highway speeds of 70mph voltage was 12.6, but at times it would got up to 13.9. Curious if other cars act the same.
  11. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    My charging voltage never drops below 14.5 and sometimes it get above 15. From what I understand it should drop down into the 12's but never does? Is this a feature that has to be activated by a dealer?

    I traded my 14 LT for a 16 LT, and have noticed that the 14 always ran between 13-15 volts. Right now, I have not seen the 16 anywhere out of the 12 range. Is this normal? It seems like it would be higher with all the electronics in the 16 in comparison to the 14 (auto start stop, keyless...

    Started last Friday, was fine over the weekend, but last night, went crazy again. Now we are afraid to take this thing on any sizable trip, if the battery goes dead, we would be stranded, very well cared for and only 40K miles on it. Here is the circuit diagram: The thing is, without having...

    I hope someone can help me, I tried the dealer once,they changed the negative battery cable, maybe they will get it right the second time... Anyhow after driving at 75 mph for a while I will use my directional and the car goes crazy on me. The power steering sometimes goes out, the stabiltrack...

    I have 2 '12 Cruze Eco's. Scrolling through the vehicle information screens after sitting overnight at 60F, one car shows 12.2V with the Key On Engine Off (KOEO). The other car shows 12.3V KOEO. Charts show this to mean the battery needs to be charged and is only at 60% charged. In these...

    So with45,000 KM on the car I had my first check engine light come on this evening. I remote started the car and walked outside to get in, but before I put the keys in the ignition I popped the hood to top off the washer fluid which of course shut the engine off. Once I was done under the hood...

    Hi, I just checked the voltage at the headlight socket on my 2011 cruze with car running and it was 12.6 and at the battery 14.4. I would like to know if I relayed both low and hi beams so they get 14.4 volts will it melt anything say like the headlight assembly? Thanks.

    I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze and was wanting to know from the Cruze experts is the 12.5 Volts correct voltage when the car is running? Lots of cars I have owned in the past when the car is running the voltage was closer to 13.5 volts. I have a 2 way radio in the car and when transmitting it's 60...
