Hi everybody. I'm new to the forum and have searched for title related issues. Found some but none showed how the issues were resolved.
We bought our 2017 Cruze in July 2017. We're having issues with the Traction Control and Check Engine lights coming on, sometimes both at the same time, sometimes by themselves. What typically also happens is the car will start shaking like its going to fall apart and the engine power will be reduced significantly. Over a period of 5-45 minutes the car will return to normal operation and the lights will go off. All of the times this has happened the roads have been clear. Twice the temps have been between 25-30 outside but I'm not sure if that affected anything.
We've taken it to the dealer we bought it from and had the service techs check it over. We've taken it there a total of 5 times for a total of 32 days. They've been unable to replicate any of the issues to date.
Codes P0201-00 (cylinder 1 injector control circuit) and P0300-00 (engine misfire detected) were pulled by the techs. Based on these codes they wiggled the wiring harness and connections and monitored G0S2 data to see changes. They saw no changes. They did note that cylinder 1 has had 6,772 history misfires and cylinder 3 had 6. Since no cylinder had a current misfire they wrote it off. This does not sound normal to me. I've asked the service manager and he assured me it is.
Based on the P0300 concern they did a compression check on all cylinders and they were within spec.
On a subsequent dealer tech inspection for the same issues they replaced the number 1 fuel injector, ECM and wiring harness.
The most recent dealer service tech visit resulted in them driving the car for over 550 miles with a laptop attached in an attempt to replicate the issues. They were unable to.
Since this past visit to the dealer the Traction Control light has come on 2 other times with the car shaking violently each time. The 2nd time the car was shaking so much I was unsure if it would actually stop in time for me to not hit a car in front of me stopped at a light. It was as if none of the tires had contact with the road. I know this sounds crazy, but it felt like I had lost total control of the vehicle. Luckily it stopped in time for me to not hit the car in front of me, but it was scary none-the-less.
I know there have been others that have experienced these issues based on the number of other posts about it, but has anybody had the issues resolved? If so, how were they resolved?
