SOURCE: 99 Cavalier driver door wont close when cold

In my case the latch mechanism was frozen. The best bet for that is to allow it to be heated; hair dryer or something then put WD40 or something on it until i get a new one

Hold the door handle in the open position while using a bent coat hanger on the door catch lever.Sometimes a flathead screwdriver works to pry the door catch as well. Good luck, keep me posted.

SOURCE: key stuck in 2009 chevy hhr ignition help please

You may want to try pushing fordward harder into the park position while turning the key to the off position. The locking cable may need adjustment. If this does not work, try turning the collar just behind the keyswitch counter clockwise while trying to remove the key.Thanks, Dana

Probably the spring broke which returns the latching mechanism to its "open" position. Pull the door handle and hold it. Take a screwdriver and flip the latch (catch) in the door to the open position. Now, you should be able to close the door 1 time, and it should latch. You need to replace the latch mechanism as soon as possible. You can get a used one from a junk yard. Some on-line parts stores also have free on-line repair manuals which show how to disassemble the door and replace the latch. It is not a difficult job. Anyone with some basic tools should be able to handle it.

Why does my hhr radio try to load and eject a cd disc when there isn't one inserted


There is an arm in/on the left side of the disc player. Most likely the spring inside it is broken. Leaving the arm in the pushed back position. Some times kids put coins in there also. This will cause things to happen, to include killing the radio and/or cd player.

I HAVE A 2009 FORD ESCAPE AND THE REAR HATCH WILL NOT OPEN FUSE IS GOOD. PLEASE HELP ME.


You need a latch assembly. Common problem. Open the hatch glass. Then try and lift up and push forward the plastic door panel around the spot where the glass closes into the hatch. It should give you enough room to see the latch assembly inside. Use a flashlight to look for the latch which is in the center bottom of the hatch. There is a white plastic lever. Push or pull on the lever and the door should open. The latch has a electric actuator that goes bad. Only replaced as a latch assembly.

How do you find the latch to open the gas tank to fill it?


The HHR does not have a latch release like many other cars. All you need to do is push the fill door in and it will "pop" out so you can open it completely. When you close the door, push it firmly and it will snap flush.

Rear door won't stay shut


Check the latch mechanism on the door. There is a piece of the latch that closes around the clasp on the door frame. sometimes this closes when the door is open and you can't shut the door. Take a screw driver and flip this latch piece open and close the door.

Chevrolet HHR 2009 when doors locked the fuel tank cap does not.


Take it to your dealer, and demand they fix it.
Seriously, 2009 you should be WELL within your warranty period, unless you commute from Washington DC to Dallas Texas.

One POSSIBLE issue is, aftermarket locking gas caps are sometimes too tall for the door, and prevent it's complete closure. Second issue may be a bad connector on your gas-door locking solenoid.
Finally(and i don't knwo for sure, since mine is NOT a 2009) when you finish filling your tank, did you press the door back into the latched position? If not, then the lock solenoid will actually PREVENT the latching and proper closure from taking place.

Check the gas door for signs of damage in the sheet metal near where the lock engages. to rule this out. With the door latched shut, lock the doors, and set the alarm. Now check with a credit card, or other thin plastic piece, to see if the locking solenoid is "out". If not, that is definitely your issue, and needs to be replaced.
