dashboard lights going off dashboard lights going off dashboard lights going off

Hi my name is juan and I bought my cruze on June of 2015 and I really have thought that I bought a excellent car. But I was wrong now is coming apart why because every day that I drive I have my dash board lights go on and off. My radio goes crazy and my rear turn signal doesn't work, I had to take off my rear left light to see if my light bulbs were damaged but all of them were just fine. I keep getting a stability control service message on my car. Now I don't know what it is but now am afraid for my life and the life of my family. Because I don't know if I drive it on the freeway it could just stay working and cause a accident. I tough that it was a bad connection with the light bulb on the rear left light That was causing the problem. Am going to contact general motors about this and problem and explain my concern because I really don't want to have a accident because of a manufacturer problem that could had been fixed.

Cruze LT 1.4L L4 Fi Turbo

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

Since September (2015) my car dashboard lights have started going off and on, the radio and fan will shut off and the Stabiltrack light sometimes comes on. This problem has only gotten worse with time and now the last couple of days an Anti Theft light comes on and when you shut the car off you cannot get the key to come out and the car won't start either, a real pain in the #x%. The problems described in other posts on here seem to fit perfectly with what is going on with my car. Unfortunately I haven't seen a fix for these issues and the dealer told me that they have never heard of this problem before.

Update from Jan 16, 2016: I FOUND THE PROBLEM:-) See the fix that worked for me below.
