Hi, I recently purchased a used chevy cruze 2012 LT model. I must say I'm quiet impressed with it. However i do have few things I'm struggling to understand and a couple of problems I'm facing at the moment.
1-What does the letters that show up on the right side on the dic panel next to the mileage reader means. I see it moves between N, E, SW and others when the car is moving in D (Automatic mode). Have read the manual thoroughly and i still couldn't find it explained.
2. I had to change the left headlight since it was broken. Recently when i switch to high the left headlight doesn't come on but the right is ok. But when i switch to low both lights come on.
3. I also hear little noise (When on rough roads) and whining noise when i turn the steer. (mostly beyond 60 degrees either left or right). The manual says i have an electric power steering.
4.Engine light on. Error code P0171. Some videos on youtube suggest i replaced the pcv valve. But i want to know if its ok to drive around.

Car was 54000m when i purchased it and I'm currently at 56100m. Any help on above will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome! That is the same model I have and I love it.

1. That is the direction you are heading. N - North, E - East, SW - SouthWest
2. It is probably a bad bulb. The bulbs have 2 filaments in them, 1 for low beam and 1 for high beam. It is possible for only one filament to burn out.
3. Not sure about this one.
4. Not sure about this one either.

Hey there,
2. As with freebeer poss. One fillement is gone, or wrong bulb replaced it with a single instead of a double?
3. Whining could be alt. Electronic steering means more power equals more resistance in the alt. Use a stethoscope see what's whining or get it looked at.
4. Code comes up as too lean? Not enough fuel could be a ton of things one injector dirty, MAF not reading enough. Check out -> OBD-II DTC: P0171 System Too Lean (Bank 1) some of the poss solutions are check able at home but most require some in depth work.
