Question about Chevrolet Cruze
Considering the age of the battery for that year car, before you do anything else, try a jumpstart to see if the car will start. If so, you may just have a weak battery that needs to be replaced.
Unlike cars of old, modern car computers will deny power to critical circuitry when the battery falls to a certain level. Without getting too involved in explaining, this protects the sensitive circuits of your car from ill effects of a battery on it's last leg. Lights on and no attempt at start is indicative of intentional computer protect.
What a weak battery did to fry a cars clock windings in the 50's and 60's would certainly wreck a lot of options in the modern car so the computer protects those circuits through power denial.
