I spoke to them today and was quoted $110 for the part alone :'(. Seems like I'll have to roll the dice with a US import which could take a while with all the flight/import restrictions unless there's a better solution out there.
The negative battery cable is about $29 here. With shipping it should be less than the quoted price. Are you past the extended warranty?

As far as I am aware there is no coverage for extended warranty in Australia. Chevy Cruze is re-badged as a Holden Cruze here. Same car, but unfortunately not the same customer service. I'll probably have to ship it over, I'm just concerned about the shipping time with all the hold ups because of COVID-19.

Hmmm. Is it a GM dealership you went to or is Holden a separate company?

Holden is an Australian car manufacturer that turned to importing cars only about 8 years ago. They ARE GM but at the same time they aren't haha. All dealings are with Holden, but they frustratingly don't seem to be the same in a lot of respects.

Incidentally Holden announced it was closing up shop a couple of months ago and will be no more.

Important point: The Holden Cruze is not a re-badged Chevrolet Cruze, they were built in completely different factories, and although there are many parts in common, there are subtle differences, such as higher headlights, and different wiring looms, and totally different programming in the ECU. That's only a partial list.

Hence the reference to a global PLATFORM.

Fair enough, though the common faults seem to be shared across the two variants.

Hello-
I have been having issues with my battery not charging and then my car sending random codes. I took it to the dealership and they said it was the negative cable line. They fixed it and it was running fine. A month later it is doing the same thing. My dad and I just wiggled the negative line and it was fine. The dealership is saying modules of the car is the issue. Could the bad negative line be causing the car modules to fail? -Thank you!

Welcome Aboard!(y)

Probably not. Post the codes.

Don't forget to introduce yourself and your Cruze here.

Not necessarily it is a clamp that loosens over time making it so that there isn’t the same amount of fuel getting to where it needs to be. Where as if it were defective I imagine it wouldn’t work at all.
Fuel runs through battery cables?

My 2015 1.4T surprised me by having the exact symptoms described in the
ww7.oemdtc.com site for the Special Coverage Adjustment: NHTSA 10089945. I then spent 3 hours on the phone to be told MY 2015 doesn't qualify due to the last 8 alpha-numeric characters of my VIN not matching an analog code of Chevrolet's. Therefore, even though my 2015's problem's solution is an obvious match to the Chevy Service Bulletin 14311B, no help from Chevy. These guys kill me!
So, I'll by the negative cable on-line (OEM $20) and get the tools out.
