2011 Holden Cruze CD manual. This is the second time that the car has failed to start

Driving in town this morning with no issues and then parked, and when I tried to start it nothing at all. RACQ assist came and did something with the battery and the Car started but as soon as I got On my way! And switched it off the same issue again.

Hi Garth:
I'd start by checking the battery condition, terminals, wires, and connections.
If it still has the original battery, chances are that it needs to be replaced.

    Battery is almost brand new

    Could you contact RACQ and ask what the problem was?
    If the battery is almost new then I'd be checking the terminals for corrosion. Oxidation on the posts and inside of the clamps can drastically reduce current available.

2011 Holden Cruze CDX Petrol, Engine Power Is Reduced message has popped up and I would like to know whey it is happening or what it could be linked to.

Reduced engine power might be caused by a fault that needs investigating with diagnostic equipment but the condition might be linked to delayed routine maintenance and the resetting of the service interval computer when performance might be reduced to protect an unserviced engine.

I have a Holden cruze cd diesel 2009. The key is stuck in the ignition and the lever won't come out of park. The engine starts ok. What could be the problem

Just a wild guess because I know very little about automatics.

Modern cars need the footbrake applying in order to release the gear lever and so it could be worth checking that safety device (brake pedal switch) if fitted.

Hi, I own a 2002 Holden Cruze.This morning the car wouldn't start and the engine light was flashing. Maybe fuel pump or crank angle sensor. Can anybody help?

There are numerous causes for the check engine warning light to display.

You need to have the vehicle scanned for fault codes to see what fault codes the vehicle's computer has generated. Once that has been done the mechanics can diagnose the causes of those fault codes and then make what ever repairs or parts replacements that may be needed. It may only be a minor issue. You cannot assume what the likely problem might be and replace parts and hope for the best.
I suggest you either get the car to Holden service or to an independent mechanic who is familiar with the Cruze and has the necessary diagnostic equipment.
