Question about 2006 Chevrolet HHR

1 Answer

What could be wrong with my 2006 Chevrolet HHR?

A couple of days ago I attempted to start my 2006 HHR. I put the key in the ignition and turned it. It was like my battery had died. I attempted to take the key out of the ignition but it had locked up. I managed to get it started but now there is a whole host of problems as a result. The power steering is gone. The odometer, trip odometer, temperature/fuel range/average speed gauge and speedometer are not working. I just had her in the garage a few weeks ago and had the recalls done. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

SOURCE: 2006 Chevrolet HHR LT Problem

After searching around, I found several posts that suggested reseating all the relays and fuses under the hood. After checking, I noticed nearly all of them were not seated well. I pushed them all down and I haven't had the problem since.

SOURCE: 2006 chevrolet hhr vibration while driving

Most of the time this is due to an unbalanced, or out-of-round tire due to belt seperation, especially if the vibration get harder the faster you go. Otherwise have a garage check your alignment.
Unless you have had an impact to the front end, these are probably your solution. Good luck, I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Key stuck in ignition

This is a VERY common problem and there is a campaign though I am not sure it ever made it to full recall. The ultimate answer is to have the ignition switch replaced. In the meantime, you'll need to be able to get that key out. On the bottom side of the steering column there is a one inch square rubber plug that you pry out. You can then use your pointer finger to push the switch in. This will release the lock and let you turn your key to the off position and remove. You may want to leave this plug out as you'll be doing this a lot until it is repaired.

To eliminate the battery have a load test done to check the cell conditions. I suspect that it may be an immobiliser problem from the key issue.

You are going to need to recalibrate the remote to the vehicle. As long as the remote works correctly which i think it should. It will actually tell you how in the owners manual. I am not current with the HHR as i have not worked on one yet. They must be reliable!

Long crank, no start


I want to thank u for reporting ur problem. I recently had to change my fuel pump and it just happened to have happened on the same day u had to change urs. I really think that after having a car for less than 2 years this should not have happened but I am no mechanic just a driver. But just wanted u to know that u should also have them do a fuel cleaning and flush out the injectors and a throttle body service. Good luck hope I have helped u out.
