Special Coverage Adjustment – Negative Battery Cable Loose – 2011-2015 Chevrolet Cruze

NHTSA ID Number: 10089945

Manufacturer Communication Number: 14311B

Summary

14311B – Special Coverage (revised warranty information). On certain 2011-2015 model year Chevrolet Cruze vehicles, the negative battery cable terminal clamp may have an insufficient crimp at the battery negative terminal. Over time, the internal resistance increases and vehicle electrical systems do not receive adequate power. With this condition, the following effects are possible: the radio/hvac display may turn off and on; the antilock brake system, service traction system, service stabilitrac and steering vehicle messages may come on and off; the turn signal sound may not be heard; “Battery Saver Active” and “Service Steering” may display in the Driver Information Center (DIC); and the interior and exterior lighting may flicker. Power steering assist may also be lost, and greater effort may be needed to turn the steering wheel at low speeds or while the vehicle is stopped. Dealers will replace the battery negative cable, which will now require a bolt to fasten the small regulated voltage cable.

  1. I have this problems now, the dealer is trying to charge me. I have 41124 miles. Shouldn’t they be fixing the cable free of charge?

    1. I have same issue and dealership doesn’t want to replace the cable but they want to charge over $300 on the power box on top of the battery instead. I even printed this form out for them

  2. It’s nice to know that this problem started at 120,097 miles…which means it’s nothing covered on my 2012 Cruze…and NEVER got ANY letter from Chevy about a recall…
