Customer Question
I have a 2017 Cruze...
I have a 2017 Cruze (No warranty) that reports "Service Theft Deterrent System." New GM key programmed via the 30 minute learn procedure. PCM reports P3051, P3055, P12A6 and P018B. It starts after sitting overnight and runs for about 1 minute then dies and does not start again. After programming info center reported "1 Key Programmed" and the key idled for about 1-2 minutes. If you mess with the accelerator at all it will die and not restart. Best way to get it to stay running is to let it idle.

^^^^The key doesn't idle, but the car does. :) The trunk got some water in it and the 5A fuse sitting directly next to the battery was blown.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
In addition, during no start state I have verified a no spark condition (starting fluid post MAF) and no fuel pressure (via scan tool).

Go inside your trunk, remove the bottom carpet/panel and look to see if it's full of water....or any signs of anything being wet

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No water/moisture. Was once wet, but it is not now. 5A fuse sitting next to battery was blown. Replaced this fuse and it did not blow again. No corrosion on terminals. All connectors cleaned with CRC electrical connector cleaner and blown out.

Ok....the reason i wanted your vin was there's a recall on some of these vehicles for this problem

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ran VIN and no recalls for this car.
Chevy Mechanic: Todd Audette, Chevy Technician replied 7 months ago

In my opinion there has been water damage to the modules that are in the bottom of the trunk....all the codes you have lead to 2 modules that are back there

Sorry the converter power supply was replaced.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Fuel Pump Control Module has to be programmed, so this is not something I can do.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Why the "Service Theft Deterrent System" message if FPCM?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Seen these FPCMs mounted up under the spare tire on the 1500 series trucks.
Chevy Mechanic: Todd Audette, Chevy Technician replied 7 months ago

Well thats not where they are mounted on a cruze......was the fuse block replaced
