I thought it was 12-13 and mid way 13 they were good to go in factory trim. Well, I've just been busy to try the light trick in the fuse box but will do that soon. Either way, I'll end up doing it I guess.

I have a 2014 cruze 2lt and I had my installer put in some LED foglights direct to the daytime running lights, they worked good until 1 night they stayed on ALL NIGHT! I could not get them to turn off and didn't have the space or tools to see what could be causing it. As of now they don't turn on anymore, could it be that it blew a fuse? or what would cause them to stay on all night and then not turn on again?
IIRC, the stock 2014 doesn't have DRLs, but uses the low-beam headlights. As such, I can't even guess what may be going wrong. You'd have to know how the added fog lights work.

I do believe I had the switch before I tested it. I went out just now to verify and you do have to have it on via the interior switch first.
I've got a 2013 2LT with a 10/2012 production date. I have a spare headlight switch with fogs so I swapped it in. Pressed the fog switch and got no fog indicator light in the dash. I assume then the BCM must be programmed?

I added factory fogs to my car after purchase, and they required a BCM reprogram, if that helps. I just had the dealer do the whole thing. They wanted to charge me for 4 hours. But that included taking the front bumper off. The tech put them on in less than an hour, and didn’t pull the bumper. I requested the price be reduced. After some haggling, if I recall, they changed me $150 for the bcm reprogram and the install. I would figure out the cost with the dealer before you get the work done.

OK that's what I thought. I have no problem doing the install, just paying an hour labor for 10 minutes work is annoying.

I added the fog lights to my Cruze myself without taking the bumper off. Not that hard. Dealer charged me like $90 to program the BCM, so you got a pretty good deal on yours. :goodjob:

That is correct, if you had the switch and pressed it with no light appearing on the dash that does in fact mean a BCM Reprogram is required.

Hello, I have a 2014 Chevy cruze diesel just added the chevy factory fog light kit. When I push the button for the fog lights it Does show the green icon in the gauges but I have no power at the fuse. Does that mean it needs the bcm programmed ? Build date of 2/13

Yes more than likely you do if it's a factory GM kit. There should have been an authorization code on the box that the dealer needs to reprogram the BCM. Hope you saved it!

I do have the box it came in from Gm,I called and made an appt. Thanks for the reply.
I got the kit for Christmas for my 2nd gen. Hopefully I can get it installed this weekend and then make my appointment for the programming. Probably do an oil change and tire rotation at the same time since I'm almost due.

It will be interesting what they charge, the service writer said she would work with me on making it less than an hr as long as nothing else needs flashed after he does the Bcm flash

Yea that's why I'm thinking of bundling it with an oil change and tire rotation so I don't get whacked for an hour just to program. Need to call and see if they'll work with me first though of course.
