SOURCE: key stuck in 2009 chevy hhr ignition help please

You may want to try pushing fordward harder into the park position while turning the key to the off position. The locking cable may need adjustment. If this does not work, try turning the collar just behind the keyswitch counter clockwise while trying to remove the key.Thanks, Dana

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.

There is a service bulletin for this from G.M.If you have less than 36k miles it is covered under warranty.The warranty on your vehicle is a 3 year 36k miles bumper to bumper warranty.The powertrain is 5 years 50k miles.Your ignition cylinder would not be powertrain.Powertrain is considered your engine and transmission.I will give you the bulletin number and the part number.This is for replacement of the ignition cylinder.The bulletin number is 09-02-35-005c.The part number is 20869121.These are G.M.numbers so they are only good at a G.M.dealership.If you have a dealership that you regularly go to.You should take it there and have them fix this.Let me know if you have anymore questions.Good luck.

Lost set of keys, alarm was on car locked. Found spare key only, it will open door, alarm goes off, but the key won't start engine. It will turn in ignition, but dead! It's a Chevy HHR 2006! HELP


Close the doors. Lock the doors using the buttons on the key fob. Use the fob to again unlock the doors. The key should then work the ignition. If this will not work, you will have to tow your vehicle to the dealer and buy a new key and/or fob and have it programmed to the vehicle.

2009 HHR won't start. Battery is good.


Is the security light on or blinking?If not then do you have power to the starter.You can check this with a test light.You should have power when you turn the key to start.The test light should light up.Should be the small wire.I believe it is purple in color.If the security light is on then you will have to get the codes to see what is causing the no start.Hope this helps.Good luck.
