The traction control should engage any time the front wheels slip. The only way to disable it is to put the transmission in low 1. If it is engaging (Driver Information Center message) when the wheels are NOT slipping then you need to take the car to the dealer. The HHR is almost all computer controlled and there are very few user adjustments.

2006 Chevy HHR. I do not have any positive power to the ac blower controler.

Check blower relay and check fuse power under hood for 12 volt reference. Check to see if relay engages when blower is turned on, if not pull relay and see if second art of junction has proper ground and power. Also check to see if switch side is transferring voltage to relay to engage relay. The relay is designed to relay power to an device so switch assembly does not burn out.

Engine light and traction control light on 2006 chevy hhr

Traction control usually uses part of your ABS brake system to function. Sometimes a dirty (or worn out) wheel sensor is the problem that triggers both "check engine" and "traction control"...This can be verified with the proper diagnostic meter, and many shops will perform this test for free...unfortunately the free check at the auto parts stores does not include reading the ABS/Traction sensors...sensor cost is about $65. sometimes they can be cleaned. Hope this helps.

Traction control on chevy hhr 2006

The traction control and transmission shifting would involve the body computer more so than the engine computer.
Have you had the body computer scanned for trouble codes ?

I have a Chev HHR and the t/c light came on. What does it mean?

either your Traction Control is turned off or malfunctioning. There should be a switch near the gear shift normally that allows you to turn this feature on or off as needed. If the switch isn't working then you have a problem in the Transmission Control unit most likely.

2006 Chevy HHR Traction Control Light and Check engine

i fixed mine by pulling each and every fuse in all the fuse boxes and replacing them with new ones. the hhr fuses have a tendency to work loose and cause all kinds of little problems. i searched the forums for the answer to the traction control light problem and never found an answer that worked until i talked to a "shade tree" mechanic in my area and he told me to do the fuse thing. been a month now and no more problems.
