Considering the age of the battery for that year car, before you do anything else, try a jumpstart to see if the car will start. If so, you may just have a weak battery that needs to be replaced.
Unlike cars of old, modern car computers will deny power to critical circuitry when the battery falls to a certain level. Without getting too involved in explaining, this protects the sensitive circuits of your car from ill effects of a battery on it's last leg. Lights on and no attempt at start is indicative of intentional computer protect.
What a weak battery did to fry a cars clock windings in the 50's and 60's would certainly wreck a lot of options in the modern car so the computer protects those circuits through power denial.

Good luck.

My Chev Cruze cuts out and refuse to start.Starter make a click sound and engine do not start, car display code 136


Sounds like loose battery terminals. Remove the bolts holding on the battery cables (usually 8mm for side mount, 10mm for top mount), clean the terminals with a rag or old tooth brush if there is corrosion. Tighten the cables down so they are snug. A vehicles starter draws a lot of amperage from the battery and needs a good solid connection or the starter motor will just "click". I hope this helps.

WHAT SIZE BATTERY DOES THE CHEV CRUZ 2012 1.6 USE


Great question...The normal new car battery rating is 650 CCA (cold cranking amps) The new car battery usually has a prorated 5-6 year battery warranty. When replacing compare the CCA to the factory...It is always wise to upgrade to a higher rated CCA battery. Auto Zone Gold for the Cruz is a 800 CCA rated battery...Also Costco competes great in price:) All of these auto stores will have the correct battery group for your Cruz...A wise upgraded investment...The new batteries will be 6-7 year pro-rated, with some 100% 3 year replacement. Be sure to compare:)
