i bought a 2013 chevy cruze for my daughter for college. the right turn signal and parking light doesn't work and the left turn signal on the back doesn't work. also there is no power to the acc outlet in the interior fuse box. the fuse was blown on acc power but replaced and still no power. fuses seem to be ok but not sure what to check for. any answers would be nice. i bought a bumper to bumper warrenty fro the car but thought it would be simple to fix. paul

Since you have already paid for someone else to fix the car have them do so. The lights may be nothing more than burned out bulbs but when you combine them with the accessory outlets not working I suspect something more involved.

From what you describe it has the flavour of a vehicle that has had aftermarket modifications done to the electrical system. Such as adding stereo, lighting, radar detection, etc.

These modern vehicles do not respond well to electrical modifications that are not sourced from the factory. Any chance you could talk to the previous owner(s)?

Paul you didn't purchase it this way I hope. You can't really buy a Bumper to Bumper warranty, you bought a Vehicle Service Contract. What is the name of the provider on the contract. Is there a deductible per covered component. Some contracts will allow your Daughter to take the Cruze to any licensed repair facility. How are your battery cables as they might be bad. Have you also checked your Daughter's VIN# for any Recalls?

Silly question. You do know the outlets are not powered when the car is off, right?

yes i bought it from the chevy dealership from ky so i may have to take it back there but was trying to fix it myself. they said it would fix anything that wasn't normal wear related for 5 years or 125,000 miles.

really don't know what was silly about that but thanks for your input
Sorry, bad phrasing on my part. It's my way of warning people that I'm about to ask an obvious question and to not get offended by it.

If you're not getting power to the fuses, then that points to a bad relay on the interior fuse block. There's some other posts here on how to make the accessory power on all the time by jamming something into that relay. But first, I'd sure like to know what blew out the fuse and the relay. That sounds nasty.

Paul this sounds like you might have electrical issues, and these issues are ANYTHING but normal. I did ask what company and level of coverage you purchased for your repair contract, some will fix electrical issues, you didn't respond.

thanks. may have been something spilled when she had a usb port pluged in to the 12 volt plug. also before all of this happened, someone backed into her car on the back right side and she lost the whole right back side of her tail light but wasn't hit hard enough to break the whole tail liight cover out. 1900,00 was the est.. still waiting to get that fixed (body shop)their going to look at the problem when they fix the car but don't know why that would cause acc problem . i think she spilled something in the port plug and it blew the fuse but don't know if it would do something with the relay. body shop manager at ford is a good friend of mine so that's why i'm taking it there so maybe he can figure the problems out so i don't have to take it to the chevy dealer because they may be mad that they didn't get to fix the car and also i didn't buy it there. thanks alot for your feed back. god bless, paul

sorry, the manager said it was a bumper 2 bumper warrenty but would not cover brake shoes,light bulbs,normal wear. they already fixed an check engine light issue and someone didn't put the oil cap back on right and oil got on engine so they cleaned motor(which may have caused the light issue) and changed the oil for no charge but i'm not around the car that much because she is in college at usi. when she come home and i was putting her sur. cameras in her car i thought the cameras were working but they were only working on the battery fuse and not the acc fuse. i think she spilled something in the usb port which may have caused the acc problem. her car got hit in the back and may be the cause of the light issue. still waiting for the body shop to fix her car. just want it fixed before she goes back to college. sorry for the long answer. thanks for reading the post god bless

Of course those things are not covered. It looks like you were doing some electrical work on the CRUZE and screwed it up, now blaming your daughter for spilling something in the USB port, you think:dazed002:

Spilling something in the USB might affect the radio, it's not going to blow power port fuses. Where were you tying in power for the camera?

It sounds like a USB phone charger not the covered one in the center console since it's a 13 and they still have covers there.

Was both front and rear ports powered by same fuse? I know lots of people never plug into the rear one and use that as power source.

i put it on the no. 7 fuse which was blown. no. 7 powers the power outlet. no 6 supplys the cigg. lighter. the 12 volt had a usb add. plug in it which is not covered when the plug is in it. not sure if she spilled something in it and it blowed the fuse. the cameras power supply acc cord also has a fuse in it that wasn't blown and it worked fine on her 2010 escape. i'm going to wait and see what the ford dealer body shop finds out when they fix her car. don,t know why the cameras would have blowed the fuse. just a ground wire and a yellow for power all the time and the red acc wire for power when car is running. thanks for asking in a kind way, paul

Just trying to keep my ducks in a row, you took your Chevy Cruze to a Ford dealership for service?

He has friends there. He trusts his friends more then an unknown Chevy dealer. If this is like many dealers, they also run a used car lot with many brands. This isn't really a Chevy-specific issue, so they should be fine with it.

Someone run into the back of her car so i'm taking to the ford body shop because we've always had fords and he treats me right so he said he would look into the elect. Problems that she's having. If they can't find out the problem, then after he fixes the body work, then i guess i will take it to the chevy dealer but because i didn't buy the car there and their not fixing the body work ,i want to get the body work done first so they won't get mad at me for not letting them fix the body work. Maybe my friend at fords can fix it for me for letting them fix the car. Thanks have a happy new year
