    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.

    My recommendation is to hand wash your cruze as touch less and softcloth washes are brutal. Next time you go through look at your gas cap cover in passenger mirror during dry blowing process you will be shocked at what you see.The water pressure is to great in the wash process. I have hand...

    I've finally gotten around to the photos people have been asking for. Took me a while to get the car washed and waxed, but here she is, all dolled up with shined shoes. I used mostly Meguiars stuff, Gold Class Car Wash and kit, Meguiars Gold Class Carnauba Wax (2 thin coats), and Meguiars Hot...

    Just picked up a Cruze yesterday it's was a 2014 LTZ RS in red. And was definitely taken threw those car washes that touch your car with cloth strips. So there's swirl marks. I waxed it with the ICE wax twice tonight and then again with thick coat of Mothers . No change in the swirls. So would...

    Even though I knew better than to do it, I took my Cruze to the car wash...one of those that pull your car through a series of stations? Anyway, half way through, I fell something push the car from the passenger side and heard a bad screeching noise. When I got out and started drying the car...

    In the winter I'll be honest, I kind of let it go, or I will wash it then try not to drive anywhere if it snows because it just gets grit and salt scuz on it, but I try to run it through the car wash at least once a week. I know other people are more anal. I have the Crystal Red Tint color and...

    My car hasn't been washed since Thanksgiving due to the wonderful weather we've had, but the sun was out today and we saw a whopping 22 degrees! I figured I'd wash it and get some pics, since the only pics I've taken since the Eibach springs were installed have been in the snow and the car was a...

    Hi, So I purchased a 2013 Chevy Cruze back at the end of October.. it now has 1,700 miles on it. Last week I got suckered into buying a $5.00 car wash at a shell gas station in order to save $.25 a gallon on my purchase. Today I went to use my coupon for the wash and the guy starts arguing...

    The touchless wash I've used almost exclusively for the last three years was under maintenance the other day, so I ventured out (with my Subaru) and tried out a different one which I discovered I like a lot better. One of the additional features of the system is that it sprays all the way...

    I dropped off the car for its first scheduled oil change @ the dealer. All went well until I drove it thru their complementary touch less car wash. After paying for the the top end car wash, I drove it out and that's where my troubles began. The car started belching whit smoke, something that...

    I am seeing RED! I don't use automatic car washes because I worry they will scratch my car. I pay a bit more and go to a handwash spot. Well, at some point they scratched my car! I noticed it as soon as I approached the driver's side door. It is right above the handle and looks like they drug...

    Just did a thorough wash and vacuum today. Took some pictures of the LED lights on the interior and license plate. Question: Is everyone's license plate light housings facing the same way? By that I mean when you unscrew them and place the LEDs in the lights point a certain way. In my case they...

    I recently saw a bottle of Turtle Wax rinseless car wash on the shelf at a parts store, and decided to give it a shot. I was all set to order Optimum No-Rinse, except shipping would have killed it for me. For under $9 for the bottle, I figured I'd give the TW stuff a shot. I mixed it at the...
