SOURCE: power steering keeps going out on my 2007 hhr

yes it's true they do not have a power steering pump
they have electric power steering
i'm not sure about the HHR but the G5 and the COBALT have a MESSAGE come up on the RADIO or the DIC service power steering
my guess would be you have a short that's why the fuse blew
poss. POWER STEERING MOTOR shorted internal
you should have the vehicle scanned for a fault code in the steering system
hope this helps

SOURCE: had to jump it, replaced power steering fuse but

You may have blown more than the power steering fuse (#1, 60A). You should check all the fuses in the underhood fuse box and you will probably find at least 1 more.

Also check the inside fuse box in the passenger side of the console.

Battery won't keep charge


sounds to me you have a faulty power steering unit, if it blown the fuse you must have electric power steering. I suspect your power steering is draining the battery. (internal short in power steering unit) If your battery won't hold or take a charge, replace it. check your alternator as well as that charges the battery.

The power steer light keeps coming on n steerimg wheel gets hard on 2007 hhr..what is it??


Quite often the 60AMP maxi fuse is blown, usually from jump starting the vehicle. Check the fuse first. There are also at least 4 different technical service bulletins from Chevy relating to steering hard to turn. This model uses an electric motor at the base of the steering column for the vehicle steering. 3 out of 4, the electrical motor assembly needs replacing. A few are safety campaigns and will still be covered even if your warranty has expired. I would have it diagnosed at a GM dealer first to see if it is still covered.

Why does 2006 chevy hhr power steering suddenly stop working?


There is a known issue with the HHR (and other GM products) Electric Power Steering. GM has recalled some vehicles.

If problem is intermittent then you need to talk to dealer. May need to replace power steering motor.

If all the time, may be blown fuse (#1, 60A underhood) or 2A under dash on passenger side of console.

Power steering went out


This is a known problem with the power steering which will probably require replacement of the power steering motor. The HHR uses an electric 12V DC motor to provide the power steering force, and they have started failing.

GM is recalling the Cobalt and other vehicles for this issue, but not yet the HHR. If you are out of warranty, you will probably be personally responsible for the cost of diagnostics and replacement.

You will probably need to contact your dealer unless you are able to replace the motor yourself. Sorry.

Power steering went out, real hard to steer


Check under the hood where the fuses are located, right next to the battery terminals. The fuse cover has a printout underneath. I believe power steering is the #1 fuse. You can replace this fuse at any auto parts store.

Where do you add power steering fluid?


The HHR does not use power steering fluid. The power steering is strictly an electric motor attached to the steering column under the dash. If you are having problems, you may need to have the motor replaced.

However, before you do, check the following fuses:

Underhood fuse #1 - 60A
Inside console fuse #19 - 2A

Either with kill the steering and may have been blown if you (or an uninformed mechanic) have jumped the car incorrectly.
