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.

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.

my 2013 cruze is now trying to turn over by itself with key off but still in ignition. also the radio comes on by itself when you open back door or wiggle key when key off but in ignition.

My Cruz just tried to start by itself. It tried 4 times. I stood there and watched it!

Same here I just had that problem last night I thought someone was trying to steal it!! I had it parked in my yard last night getting groceries out of it so I just left it there and at 1:30 am the dog started barking and I got up and looked and the lights were flashing and the starter was engaging. All I can see in my security camera was the lights flashing I was hoping I could see the car in action on video.

The problem is in the ignition key cylinder ,it has an internal short when key kept in ,this issue is not happened with Cruze with push start to cure this issue the ignition key cylinder has to be replaced with a new part number . F N D

I have same problem with my 2014 Cruze and gm said I'm on my own because vin number isn't on recall and actually that there is no recall but I found it on Google
