When jumping the HHR, be sure to use ONLY the labeled Positive and Negative connection points. Improper jumping will cause the main EPS fuse to blow. This is fuse #1, 60A in the underhood fuse box. Also check fuse #19, 2A in the inside console fusebox.

After attempting to jump start my Chevy hhr it would not jump start.after installing a new battery,the car started,but the power steering no longer worked. How do I repair it?

Check the fuse for the electric steering. If the fuse is good the steering module may have lost its settings when the battery was disconnected. May need to have it reprogrammed..

The power steer light keeps coming on n steerimg wheel gets hard on 2007 hhr..what is it??

Quite often the 60AMP maxi fuse is blown, usually from jump starting the vehicle. Check the fuse first. There are also at least 4 different technical service bulletins from Chevy relating to steering hard to turn. This model uses an electric motor at the base of the steering column for the vehicle steering. 3 out of 4, the electrical motor assembly needs replacing. A few are safety campaigns and will still be covered even if your warranty has expired. I would have it diagnosed at a GM dealer first to see if it is still covered.

After jumping another care properly the power steering sensor and the airbag sensor light came on the dash display, the power steering went out and the heater does'nt blow as hot heat, Hopefully this is...

Check your underhood fuseblock fuses.chances are the large 60 amp fuse for the power steering blew out.In the future I would stay away from jump starting and use a booster pack as these vehicles do not like voltage spikes.I have seen it cause module problems.

06 HHR - battery died, no power steering???

In the under hood fuse block you have to locate the power steering fuse and replace the blown fuse.The next time you jump the vehicle make sure and do not hook up the positive cable to the terminal under the fuse block.Use the one under the red cap by the fuse block.Also make sure the radio and accessories are all turned off before jumping the vehicle.Watch out for the cooling fans cause they could come on at anytime.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Why does 2006 chevy hhr power steering suddenly stop working?

There is a known issue with the HHR (and other GM products) Electric Power Steering. GM has recalled some vehicles.

If problem is intermittent then you need to talk to dealer. May need to replace power steering motor.

If all the time, may be blown fuse (#1, 60A underhood) or 2A under dash on passenger side of console.

Had to jump it, replaced power steering fuse but

You may have blown more than the power steering fuse (#1, 60A). You should check all the fuses in the underhood fuse box and you will probably find at least 1 more.

Also check the inside fuse box in the passenger side of the console.

Where do you add power steering fluid?

The HHR does not use power steering fluid. The power steering is strictly an electric motor attached to the steering column under the dash. If you are having problems, you may need to have the motor replaced.

However, before you do, check the following fuses:

Underhood fuse #1 - 60A
Inside console fuse #19 - 2A

Either with kill the steering and may have been blown if you (or an uninformed mechanic) have jumped the car incorrectly.
