My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello there, the battery saver notification can have a variety of causes with your 2011 Chevrolet Cruze. When the battery saver warning indicates that the battery voltage has dropped below and acceptable level and the vehicle is shutting off accessories to keep the vehicle running. If this light is seen the vehicles battery and charging system will need to be load tested. Common causes are the battery, alternator, battery cable, or a wiring harness fault. A qualified Technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to diagnose your no start condition and make any repairs required.
