This happened for the second time to me today.

The car didn't recognize the key fob was in the car.

First time it happened, I had to set the alarm off to get it to recognize it (the car locked the doors, and I opened the door to cause the alarm to go off)

?This time, I just had to keep playing with the controls on the fob.


Anyone else have a problem with their Cruze

You should see your Chevrolet dealer for this issue. The keyless system more 7 ant antenna around the car have the dealer scan using GDS2

I understand the part about going to the dealer, and getting it scanned, but everything else is greek to me.

I have been having this issue since day one I bought my car, ill drive in my car no madd3er what this distance, go to shut it off, ill get the message when I shut the car off that no key detected press clutch to restart. When this happens I cant use ANY of my keys to lock or unlock the car. the dealer has done nothing about this because every time they cant "replicate" the issue. but yet I have to deal with my car being a lemon from time to time. its just a madder of time before I get stuck when I need it

Take a photo of the message. Maybe take a video of the problem. It may not help the dealer, but it's proof there's a problem that needs fixing.

I'm not sure about the Gen 2, but the Gen 1 used the same receiver for the TPMS. Is that working OK? The Gen 1 had the receiver mounted near the inside rearview mirror. Do you have any electronics mounted in that area? Like a radar detector or a dash cam? That can mess up reception.

I have beadwork & my college parking pass ( ISNT a rfid or anything just a paper with a number on it ) hanging from my window, im gonna take the beadwork down but I doubt that's the issue. the TPMS system works fine.

When this happened in mine, a new battery in remote cured the problem.


I was in a situation where it happened when I was pulling into my house, this was last night tbh, so I was able to grab the other key fob and pinpoint that the fob isn't the issue but the receiver itself, this being said when I put the key in the middle cup holder ( where gm says to put it when it cant find the key ) it works but I still cant lock \ unlock my vehical with the fobs or the buttons on the car so if im locked out of that car that dose me no help if I gotta deal with the alarm to get in my car. Not fair to me if im trying to leave early in the morning and I get angry neighbor's because of my car alarm

I'd say either interference or a bad receiver.

When I talk about interference, it's anything that transmits a signal at or near that frequency. If it always tends to happen at home and nowhere else, then that suggests something in your home area is creating a noise that is causing the problem.

What can they possibly doing when I get an oil change that causes my keyless start not to work? Do they have to disconnect something in order to do an oil change? This is the 2nd time after an oil change the keyless start will not work. Any ideas?
