My 2013 Chevy cruze has been trying to turn over when the key is left in the ignition. It never turns all the way over and actually starts but it's enough to turn on he head lights and the dome light.

No but GM is having a bunch more recalls. I'm just waiting. I took mine into the dealership and they had it 8 hrs and said it never did it there. It's really frustrating.


I know its fustrating cause it only dose it once in a while so i just take the key out of the ignition when i park it in my garage ill wait and if there is a recall cause i think its in the ignition.thanks


Spoke to GM today. If u haven't contacted them about ur car u should. They have to have more cases before they will look into it. So frustrating


i called the dealer they just told me to take it in so they can do a dignastics on it do you have the number for mr to call ?


GM to call

We had the EXACT same problem. If key was left in ignition, car would try to "turn over" like it was going to start. Would also sometimes notice at night that radio was playing and/or interior/dome lights of car were on! It is at dealership right now & they were able to get it to do this. They have just advised that problem is a short ground in two cables that connect electronic control module and battery. They are going to replace those cables & check all of the equipment they connect/control to make sure there is no damage to those components! So, take your car back to the dealership & share THIS info with them!! Our car is at Priority Chevrolet in Chesapeake, VA, so if your dealership needs to contact someone to discuss!

Mine too 2013 Chevy Cruze 63000 miles. Called GM and they wanted me to pay for taking it to the dealer to be looked at. Told them I wasn't paying for it when there are hundreds of people having this same problem.
