Question about 2008 Chevrolet Hhr

1 Answer

Possibly electrical. When starting or while driving, all of my warning lights start to flash on and off at different times. Also the fuel, rpm, and temp. gauge will move out of control while I lose my automatic transmission. I can feel and hear a clicking sound coming from the shifting panel while this occurs. In addition, the power steering goes out. I have brought the car in four times and they still have not found the problem. They claimed to have found loose wires and replaced a computer part which seemed to help for about a month until the problem returned. This happens about four times a week now and have lost faith in the dealership. This is a 2006 HHR LT.

In my 2006 ford fusion 2.3L whenever I put my key in the ignition and turn it a weird solid ringing sound start and stops 5 seconds later hat could it be?


Not surprisingly, many others have experienced problems with the ignition switch on this car. Historically, it is not a sound, but that the key is stuck in the ignition. http://repairpal.com/key-will-not-come-out-of-ignition-570 Your problem sounds different, but it may be related. Although I do not recommend the fix in the link above, it is possible the previous owner of your car did perform this fix and it has resulted in the problem you now have. My better guess is that the chime/buzzer has failed due to moisture or dirt and is no longer producing the sound that it should, but instead is altered to the ringing you describe.To disable follow these instructions:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN (or ON) position. (DO NOT
START THE ENGINE)
2. Wait until the safety belt warning light turns off. (Approximately 1
minute)
Step 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt
warning light turns off.
3. For the seating position being disabled, at a moderate speed, buckle
then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times, ending in the unbuckled state.
(Step 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt
warning light turns off.)
After Step 3, the safety belt warning light will be turned on for three
seconds.
4. Within 10 seconds of the light turning on, at a moderate speed, buckle
then unbuckle the safety belt.
This will disable the BeltMinder feature for that seating position if it
is currently enabled. As confirmation, the safety belt warning light will
flash 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
This will enable the BeltMinder feature for that seating position if it
is currently disabled. As confirmation, the safety belt warning light will
flash 4 times per second for 3 seconds, followed by 3 seconds with the
light off, then followed by the safety belt warning light flashing 4 times
per second for 3 seconds again.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Amber warning light on (steering assist failure)


Check for error codes which can be the best indicator to the fault. You can start to suspect the fuel, the fuel filter , the fuel pump , a drop in fuel pressure at higher RPM. ALso check for problems in the electronic ignition section which can show faults at higher RPM.

I am having problems with possible electrical components. The indicators for speed, rpms, gas gauge, are rotating right and left. My vehicle will start, but I can only drive it within a 9 mile distance...


Did you have the altenator replaced trying to correct this problem? Many times altenator probems will affect warning lights and gauges, at this point, most customers can't remember if the charge light was on because "all of the warning lights were on". Sometimes a faulty altenator can feed A/C current into the vehicles electrical system. I would be interested in the solution to this problem as soon as it is resolved...good luck.

Car drives fine sometimes then it will sputter and not go above 2000 rpms car wont go. sometimes wont start sometimes will. its a 2005 ford escape. the check engine light has been on for two years and has...


sputter, backfires, droping of rpm's usually coz of fuel stravation, check fuel pumps, fuel filter, cars with carbs checks fuel floats fuel line... if fuel line is blocked will result with the same symptoms... another angle you need to check is electrical... uneven or unstable electric supply will result to the same problem... if your encourtering bad smell, maybe you have an overheat engine, or oil level is very low... check brakes maybe you have a broken brake linnings { this just pops up to my head}...

In July, I got caught in a flash flood with my 2002 vw beetle and had trouble with my speedometer (stayed on 0), odometer, fuel, and RPM gauge on the dashboard. Speed Sensor was replaced 2 weeks ago, but...


I would start by checking the connections on the cluster, water is the worst thing for electrical components, now a flash flood did the water fill in the car? if so then you may what to have computerr checked also, this sounds like the connections may be bad at times.

Cuts out while driving with plenty of gas


possible fuel pump or filter, if the timing belt goes the car stops completely and will not start.


The fast indicator flash is odd and usually means a blown bulb, perhaps a bad eath cable from the battery
