SOURCE: why does 2006 chevy hhr power steering suddenly

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: chevy 2006 hhr power steering pump

The power assist is electric so there is no pump. It is an electric motor near the steering shaft under the hood.

SOURCE: how do you replace the electric power steering

Hello
The electric motor that provides assist to the power steering in this car is part of the steering column assembly and not sold separately, so you must replace the entire steering column. The cost of the steering column is about $600.00, skill level to do the job about 7, 10 being hardest.

To replace it disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes before starting work, then remove the dash trim panel under the column and the lower panel under the dash called the hush panel, then remove the two bolts (15mm I think) that hold the column up and gently drop the column down and remove all the electrical connectors to the steering column turn signal switch, airbag and power steering motor and control module connector for the power steering, now go under the hood and look down where the steering shaft comes through the firewall, that is the sector shaft, it has a clamp that holds it to the input shaft of the steering rack, remove the nut of the bolt that holds the clamp tight for the two shafts at there spline connection, pull back on the shaft that come from the firewall and release the shaft from the lower shaft, go back in the car and remove the the boot at base of the steering column that seals it from the engine compartment, once that is removed verify you have all the electrical connectors off again and then pull the steering column up and out. reverse to reassemble

Sounds like a programming or electonic problem If it was to replace an ignition switch, the dealership may have flashed the computer with the wrong information to operate you vehicle or match up with the replaced part.. You will most definitely have to take it back.

When you changed out the struts, did you also replace the Strut Bearing Mounts that mount the struts to the strut towers on the car? These things are notorious for making the rattling sound.

I own a 2006 Chevrolet HHR. The steering sytem seems not to be working. When the car is in a standstill poistion, the steering wheel is OK. Once it is on the road it becomes very hard. I have a signal...


Hey, I'm an automotive technician. And if I were you, i'd take it to a GM dealer, especially if thats where you purchased it, because GM is recalling millions of Chevy steering columns. It's not your fault, or anything you've done. GM's mistake, and they'll fix it.

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.

Recharged battery on my 2006 HHR and the power steering doesn't work. I can turn my steering wheel without a fight.


Unless they have gone to electric power assist on the power steering, should be no correlation.

However, is your accessory belt for running your alternator and power steering pump ok? Is it tight enough.

While an electrical issue should not affect the power steering, a loose or missing belt could cause the (1) alternator to not properly charge the battery and (2) the power steering to not have power.
