 Description of the problemI bought my 2013 cruze in june 2014, with around 40k miles on it. In september the car began having issues. At first it was just that the radio and all dash lights would shut off. Then i had multiple service lights that would flash randomly. Those included stabilitrak, traction control, power steering and security system. At one point, while driving in a parking lot, my power steering completely locked up. My car eventually stopped starting. I was stranded at school and had to call a tow truck. When this happened, my key actually got stuck in the ignition. I was able to jump the car after several minutes of trying, but it would not keep power. I had it towed to the dealership, but they were not able to find anything wrong with it (no codes even came up on the computer) and it ran just fine for them. I drove the car home, and the next day had the same problem. This time after about 30 minutes of trying to get the car to start, it did, so i drove it straight to a chevy shop. Again, they couldn't find any codes, but said they replaced some wiring and cleared the computer. I didn't have anymore problems until last week, when it all started happening again. I've had the power steering lock up on me in the middle of an intersection! The weird thing is, when my car doesn't want to start, all i have to do is use the little electrical knob that moves the drivers side seat back and forth, and everything fires up. Gm needs to figure this out because it's bound to kill someone!
