Hello there,

Ignition coil failure is common in Cruze.

Is the engine light on, and running rough?

Engine light flickers on/off. T/C light & Anti skid light both on. Engine rough but still drivable. Code set ,no idea.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Not currently able to work on car. May call later

Majority I've seen for rough running, and engne, T/C and ESP lights on, is the ignition coil, most often cylinder 1. Internal fault of coil assembly.

The replacement is revised from Holden, muuch less failure rate.

Aftermarket coils are rubbish, use genuine.
