Question about 2008 Chevrolet Hhr
Have a 2004 Silverado, bought used. Chevy records say the previous owner got the digital upgrade. Onstar says "phone not available" whenever you put key in, take key out, open door.
Chevy dealer said $1000 to fix. The fix is to "replace the Onstar module" $750 and labor and stuff to complete the grand. They say there is no way to disable the "phone not available" without messing up the stereo and other stuff tied into Onstar.
Not going to do that. I'll learn to love the "phone not available" message.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The OnStar module is under the rear seat, passenger side. You should be able to just pull the connectors out of the module. Just the rectangular ones.
The dealer is thinking about the power amplifier for the Bose radio system. That's in the fender at the right rear of the car, but that's not the issue here.

Call onstar and cancel the service, pull fuses, then remove the top of the dash and unhook the onstar module behind the passenger side airbag. I think it would be much easier just to call and cancel

Unplugging the Onstar unit should deactivate it and if you can get to it. I haven’t yet taken the time to locate the Onstar unit in my Yukon. In older Yukons, Tahoes, and Suburbans the Onstar was in the cargo area, above and behind the right rear wheel well. However, it’s my understanding that when they redesigned the Onstar unit for smaller size, they started putting it behind the instrument cluster in the dashboard. Good luck

Sounds extortionate to me. You can expect that for dealer prices perhaps but $750 for an alternator! The alternator itself should cost around $120 to $280 for a remanufactured unit and perhaps one hour or so labor.
It looks like you have been charged much more than 1 hour for fitting. Ask your garage for a breakdown of the work carried out and the price of the parts replaced. They may have fitted an original new part which can cost a lot more.
The price of sensors also varies so find out what they charge exclusive of labor.
