2014 Chevy Cruze push start Button scan tool Communication

Thomas Diagnostician Texas Posted   Latest  

Hello all, 

Have a 2014 Chevy Cruze That only communicates when the engine is running. I’ve noticed on the newer Chevrolets with the push start button that when the vehicleIs in the on position No scan tool when I communicate with Engine computer. It only communicates when the engine is running. Is this common with Chevrolet general motors would there be something else causing this to happen.

Thanks

Were you holding the start button for 5 seconds with foot off the brake to put it in key on/engine off mode? If you just press and release, its in Accessory mode.

As multiple posters have stated, you need to read the SI to figure out how to get it in KOEO mode. usually, holding the start button down for 5s will do it, as all the telltales will come on…
