it was 30 below zero and my 2011 cruze had reduce engine power and traction control and stable service lights are on. now its 2 below and those ligths are still on and I'm afraid to drive anywhere to to fix its supposed to warm up to 30 tomorrow hopng it goes away. its not when I first start car it doesn;t come on until few minutes later. engine sputters a little when light pops on as well.
Everything I run the car.
Car will go in reverse but not in drive.
It rattles pretty bad even over small bumps but as soon as I apply the slightest pressure on he brakes it stops
i scan the vehicle and a code b101e pops up
I changed thermostat, the 2 sensors, and the air filter, and I know there is no leaking water.
Traction control light and stability light are on. Now it just up and stopped. Wife came out of work and it wouldn't start, even had someone come with a jumperbox and it still wouldn't start. Charged the battery back up to 14.3 Volts and still won't start. Loses power to the ignition when you try to start it.
I put gas in I left the car running, the next morning I had a check engine light
My car will sometimes have up to a 3 second delay when I step on the gas. It is extremely dangerous and operating in busy traffic is almost impossible. If I just gradually push on the pedal it will slowly accelerate per normal. But if I want to quickly accelerate theres a serious 2-3 second delay. Can this be fixed?
On my a/c and heat, the blower motor operates at the same setting on speeds 1-3. When I switch it to 4, the fan finally picks up in speed. What could it be?
When I first got the car, the trunk release button worked just fine on the trunk itself. Now when I press it, it does nothing and I have to use the remote. What can i do?
Just happened last night and continues this morning. Have been smelling an intermittent electrical smell for several weeks.
I have been having a random misfire issue. OBD says it's it is in second and third cylinder. Engine light flashes, and I'm noticing it is only doing so (misfiring) at high speeds (65, 70MPH +)

Also it is only doing it after the engine warmed up, so 50-150 miles into a trip. I have replaced the coil pack and spark plugs are new, properly gapped, etc. Fuel injectors are functioning and I have not yet noticed anything with the way it drives when misfiring (shaking, rumbling, noise, etc)

So, I have an appt at a dealership this weekend. Does anybody have any idea (or previously experienced this issue) what it might be?

I have a turbo, 1.4 liter engine, automatic transmission and just hit 52,3000 miles. Thank you.
