Electrical issue

922 9
My 2014 Cruze sputters and jerks while I'm driving. Often it won't start after I park. I've been to three Chevrolet dealers and no one has fixed the issue. The dealer where I purchased the car said it would take weeks to check the entire electrical system. I've been told that some exposed cables were the problem. I've checked online for recalls, but am not sure if the following fits my problem. Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Recall date
Recall no.
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Buick Encore all-wheel-drive vehicles manufactured August 23, 2012, to September 9, 2013; Verano vehicles manufactured August 8, 2012, to June 20, 2013; Chevrolet Cruze vehicles manufactured August 7, 2012, to August 16, 2013, and 2012-2014 Chevrolet Sonic vehicles manufactured May 10, 2011, to August 16, 2012 equipped with a Calix oil pan/block heater. In cold temperatures, the insulation on the engine block heater cord can become damaged, allowing the wires to be exposed.

I'm not sure what your message means. I'm a 73 year old female who has no clue about the mechanics of cars. I saw Cruze Talk when I was trying to find answers online. I appreciate the
There's been known issues with the negative cable causing weird effects.

When was the plugs changed?
Coil packs are also known to burn out.

You say no start. Does the car crank no start or not crank at all? Might be bad alternator or battery too.

SOME things to look in to.

Codes would be helpful but you didn't say anything about engine light being on.
attempts to help that I've received.
Welcome Aboard!(y)

Bring the car to a big box auto parts store and have them read the codes and then post them here.

In the mean time, here are a few things to look into:

Service Bulletin - NHTSA SB-10057574-8899

The engine light was on for a time, but not now. The key makes a clicking sound but doesn't crank. I'll check on the codes.
