SOURCE: 2006 Chevrolet HHR LT Problem

After searching around, I found several posts that suggested reseating all the relays and fuses under the hood. After checking, I noticed nearly all of them were not seated well. I pushed them all down and I haven't had the problem since.

SOURCE: 2006 Chevy HHR wont shift out of park

The sensor is at the top of the pedel shaft. You should be able to push in the button with your finger. Push it in and listen for a click. if you dont hear a click then check the sensor wires for cuts or exposed copper. If thats good then the sensor needs to be replaced.

Sorry but if your reverse is having trouble you will probably have to replace or rebuild tranny like me. Otherwise try new filter and fluid first.

SOURCE: 2006 Altima doesn't shift into reverse

The problem that I could see is the transmission/shift solenoid. The solenoid thing is located inside the transmission. The repair should run $200-$250 or there abouts. If you don't fix it quickly though, you will wreck the transmission and you don't want to know how much that costs!

You may also contact the manufacturer for second opinion.

Hope this helps and have a great evening!

I have a 2006 HHR with no reverse lock out. I have read replacing the shifter assembly with a 2009 will cure the problem. Will this later shifter work with the cables without problems.

Yes 2006-2010 shifters and hardware are 0interchangable., check brake pedal to switch adjustment for solenoid interlock release arm, interlock solenoid may be damaged or misaligned. when you depress brake pedal the brake switch sends signal to the BCM (Body Control Module) in turn sends current to interlock solenoid causing arm to retract releasing shift lever. Please note that interlock solenoid is mechanically actuated to the extended lock position when interlock solenoid is not electrically energized.

My 2009 HHR wont into drive but reverse is fine

Check transmission fluid condition and has the mileage reached for the recommended change. If the tranny is computer controlled, get it scanned for error codes.

What does engine power reduced mean? hhr 2006

It reduces power to protect from engine damage. I have had this happen twice because I accidentally hit the back of the gas peddle up when I was in cruise control. It will reset once you drive in reverse. If that does not resolve the problem you might have to take it in for service.

For a quick fix to get it to shut off and not go anywhere, drop it into Reverse, which should equal neutral, assuming your shift lever has somehow skipped up one gear. Pull the parking brake, and then, try and find someone who specializes in re-linking a transmission. I've got to admit I'm no good at doing this for automatics.

2006 HHR with automatic transmission. I hear a solanoid clicking sound coming from the shifter area like a solinoid when I start the car and push the brake pedal before pressing the shift button and going...

This time only, your dealer is right. The sound is the Brake to Shift Interlock (BTSI) solenoid releasing the shift lever when you apply the brake. The sound is normal and won't hurt anything but I understand your concern.
