I know for 2006 HHRs you have to have it programmed by either the dealership or another shop with a scan tool.

Other user say that is NOT at all necessary to go to the DEALER, and send this tips straight from the 2009 Factory Service Manual:

1. With a previously learned master key, turn on the ignition, with the engine off.
2. Turn OFF the ignition and remove the key.
3. Within 10 seconds of turning off the ignition, insert the key to be learned and turn ON the ignition. The vehicle has now learned the new key.

A MASTER key is any key that already operates the vehicle.
All the above assumes the car in Italy is built to USA standards, if not all bets are off.

This is so simple even a CAVE man can do it. Why go to a dealer? I guess because that is what the Owners Manual says to do.

Up to 10 keys can be programmed into the BCM to operate the vehicle, while up to ONLY four Remote FOBs can be programmed.

The FOBs do have to be programmed at the Dealer or a well-equipped Locksmith may be able to handle it. If you are adding a FOB, gather up all your FOBs and take them to the person programming the vehicle. If the programmer makes a mistake or if four or more have ever been programmed to the vehicle, they may need them ALL present.

Hope helped with this (remember rated ths help) Good luck.

How to remove and replace headlight bulbs in a 2008 chevy.HHR

The trick to replacing all new bulbs on cars now it removing the whole lens. There will be a couple of screws holding it in when looking from above in the engine compartment. Once you loosen the screws it is not as if it comes out easily. It will take a little extra oomph to get it out. once out it goes back in very easily. When the lens is out you can access the bulb very easily.

Remote problem

there is no seperate battery in the car for the keyless entry system, either the remote needs to be re-programmed at a dealer with the proper scan tool or the remote itself is bad.
