2014 LT program car, Pull Me Over Red, 1.4T Auto
Welcome Aboard!Hey everybody. I have a 2013 cruze LT. Friday, I was driving home from work, and basically every single idiot light came on. Service stabiltrac, service power steering, service battery charger system. My blinkers stopped making their noise. Then the engine cut off at a stop sign. I was able to push it into a nearby lot, thankfully, and while I waited for my ride home, I came across this site. So, after finding several issues like mine, I replaced the negative battery cable with an AC Delco cable.
The issues are still going on, and I'm at a loss right now. To specify, I have to basically jump the car, and after leaving the car running (unhooked from the jumping vehicle) for five minutes, the service lights come on, and the engine shuts off.
The closest dealership is 55 miles away, and I honestly don't have the money to get it towed there.
The car will not drive anywhere. I live five blocks from where it's parked, and if I try driving it home, it might make it three blocks (if I'm really lucky) and will shut off with very little warning on the busiest road in town, so I can't get it to a shop, or parts store for diagnosis.
I would start by making sure all of the grounds are good to go and then consider splitting the engine fuse box to see if there is corrosion on any of the pins. While you are there you can pull the ECM plug just to look at the connections.

If any corrosion is present on the connecters, use a plastic or possibly brass brush with some contact cleaner to remove it. Once done, spread a light coat of dielectric / silicone grease on the connectors.
