Hi!
Try switching the headlights from Low Beam to High Beam when they cut off. This is to find out if the problem is on the Low or High Beam Circuits. They both have separate fuses and relays and are hot at all times, just controlled by the headlamp switch and the BCM. If both circuits cut off, check the Black Wire (Ground - ) on both head lights. 80% of the electrical problems on an automobile are due to a faulty Ground. Check for tight connections and broken wires.
Check the following Fuses/Relays on the engine compartment fuse box : # 63 - 10A, # 65 - 10A, # 66 - 10A, # 68 - 10A and # 31 - 10A. and Relays #71 Low Beam, #72 High Beam and #28 DRL. If all the above checks out OK, then your BCM could be defective. USE THIS HEADLIGHTS WIRING DIAGRAM TO TROUBLESHOOT THE CIRCUIT. 2008 Chevy HHR headlight will - 5983d19.gif

2008 HHR Remote Starter not working


Is this an issue with all 2008 HHR remotes??? Highly doubtful , probably the vehicles keyless entry system . Taking the vehicle to a qualified repair shop an having the keyless entry system checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Do you know what a DTC is ?
The keyless entry system is a vehicle entry device. The keyless entry system is used in conjunction with the body control module (BCM) to remotely activate certain vehicle features. Keyless entry will lock/unlock the doors, or release the rear compartment lid when a corresponding button on the keyless entry transmitter is pressed. This is accomplished by the transmitter sending a radio frequency to the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). The RCDLR interprets the signal and activates the requested function via a serial data message to the BCM. A low transmitter or vehicle battery or radio frequency (RF) interference from aftermarket devices, such as 2-way radios, power inverters, computers, etc., may cause a system malfunction. High RF traffic areas may also cause interference that could lead to a malfunction. Keyless entry allows you to operate the following components:
• Door locks
• Liftgate lock
• Remote rear doors (Panel only)
• Vehicle locator/panic alarm
• Illuminated entry lamps
• Remote vehicle start
The keyless entry system has the following components:
• Keyless entry transmitters
• Keyless entry antenna
• 2 Way Advanced Remote Start RCDLR
• BCM

Guessing will not fix this .

How do you access the headlights on a 2008 chevy hhr I need to change them.


Most Chevy headlights are held in place by three 10 mm bolts...as you remove all 3, you can lift the headlight assembly forward and expose the headlight bulbs...be sure to use bulb lubricant when installing the new bulbs, also wear gloves so you do not touch (harmful hand grease) the new bulb filaments...our normal hand grease can cause shorter bulb life. Hope this helps.

You are going to need to recalibrate the remote to the vehicle. As long as the remote works correctly which i think it should. It will actually tell you how in the owners manual. I am not current with the HHR as i have not worked on one yet. They must be reliable!

How do i fix 2006 chevy hhr headlight


Access to change the headlamp bulbs is through the wheel well. The recommended method is to remove the front tire and then the plastic inner fender liner. Once removed, you'll have easy (more or less) access to the rear of the headlamp housing.
