Not usually. Cam sensor is for injector firing. When they go bad the PCM goes to default mode. (Last known sequence) Then runs off the crank sensor. But depending on what the exact problem was, The cam and crank senors run off the same power and ground from the PCM. The return signals are separate wires. Just something to look at.

It could but its likely not a bad cam shaft .
The camshaft and crankshaft sensors work together .They need to be in sink under all condutions sending the same signle to the computer so it knows how to respond basicly controling all functions air fuel electrical in a wide veritity of driveing ranges temputures humitity eleavations .
I would look to the sensors first .Sometimes the problem isn't bad enough yet to get a code .

Your battery is located in the rear under your cargo floor. Where most cars would hide a compact spare.

Access to change the headlamp bulbs is through the wheel well. The recommended method is to remove the front tire and then the plastic inner fender liner. Once removed, you'll have easy (more or less) access to the rear of the headlamp housing.

I had this problem and it was related to the transmission cut out switch. My elegant solution was to beat the transmission shifter with my hand until it unlocked. Has happened more than once!

Hi There Helen,I believe your problem is more likely to be with the fuel pump. Have the pressure checked and if it reads low have it replaced.Best regards

2006 Chevy HHR I fixed the butyl patch, replaced the resistor and the blower motor but it only works on High and Low. Any idea why?


Check the switch. Many times the contacts get gummy and can cause issues. You will need to disassemble the switch, not that hard to do. Use a pencil eraser or some brake cleaner on a rag.

Mel, This may not be a problem for you to take on, pretty sure it has to do with the SRS senors which could also cause B0140 code traction control possibly shut off by fault in SRS system. Take in to a good Technician for diagnoses. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

ECS is electronic controlled stability. It works with traction control when it is slippery and it does cause what you describe. It reduces the power to the engine and drive train. IT could be from ice build up on wheel sensors.

Power steering cuts out


I WORK FOR A CHEVROLET DEALER. THE THINGS THAT WE CHANGE MOST OFTEN IN THE HHR ARE THE RACK, INTERMEDIATE STEERING SHAFT, AND THE STEERING COLUMN.

IF THE STEERING IS CUTTING OUT IT'S USUALLY IN THE STEERING CONTROL MODULE. THERE IS USUALLY A CODE WHEN THE STEERING CUTS OUT. UNFORTUNATELY THE ONLY FIX IS REPLACING THE STEERING COLUMN.

MOST OF THE STEERING NOISES COME FROM THE RACK AND INTERMEDIATE SHAFT. BUT THE COLUMN WILL ALSO MAKE NOISE BUT IT WILL SOUND DIFFERENT.
