2013 Chevy Cruze LT
My buttons fell out of my fob. I could stuck my pinky in the holes to lock, unlock and open the trunk. Recently, the buttons started acting up. Push to open the trunk, the horn would honk; push the lock button, it would lock, and then immediately unlock; then the horn would just start honking when it was locked, and I would have to go out and open with the key and turn the key to on to get it to stop. Now, I lock it with the key, and 10-20 minutes later, the horn alarm goes off, and I go to the car and it has unlocked itself and set the alarm off. Now, I don't lock it, have the key laying on the counter in the house, and several times a day the alarm sounds, for about 5 or 6 seconds, then stops. I replaced the battery in the fob. I called the dealership when the buttons starting falling out, and they said not their problem, ther is no recall or TSB on the key fob with the flip key for the 2013 Cruze LT. I can't go anywhere without the alarm randomly going off or the car unlocking itself and setting the alarm off. I inquired about new key fobs, (I only have one) and the dealership wanted almost $500 for two key fobs that fell apart. $150 each for programing, plus the cost of the fob, and then more to have the key cut. Any suggestions? Buying a fob from Amazon is cheaper, but the dealership told me they won't program keys that are not purchased through them. This car is the only thing I have left, and why I only have one key, after losing everything in the Camp Fire in my hometown of Paradise, California. I would have thought they would do the right thing and give me a break on a new key fob!
