Actually in cases where your fob has died according to the manual you can pop off the black cover in front of the emergency brake. Under it there is a key slot where you can place your key in. Once inserted you press the start button with your foot on the brake to start your car like normal.I have a 2012 Cruze LTZ RS. It has the keyless entry, but like 2 weeks ago I went to get in my car and it wouldn't open, I pushed the unlock button and nothing happened. Eventually I unlocked the door with the key and my alarm goes off and I couldn't silence it (which made wonder what was the point of the keyhole in the door if there isn't one in the car) well I couldn't start the car since it wouldn't detect the key. I had to leave it and get the dealership to tow it. They supposedly replaced the receiver and ordered a new key fob. All was fine for like a week and it did it again, needless to say it's in the shop again.
Is this happening to anyone else?
I looked around and didn't see any threads on this.
the black cover almost looks like a small little space for sticking your change.
