Question about Chevrolet HHR

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Chevy HHR that was having the "pin" issue in the shifter where I was not able to remove keys unless I pushes a pin in access panel under steering wheel. I have lost all drive gear on the trans but still have reverse. It happened as it was being driven. Any suggestions before it goes into the trans shop and cost a fortune?

Its either the neutral saftey switch or the passlock / passkey security system in the ignition switch.

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.

My 2006 HHR ignition switch would not allow key to move out of "run" position. Lock cylinder came apart. No cylinders available in country. Why?


shifter pin is broken that is why the switch will not come out of run. the shifter assembly needs to be replaced to fix the key not turning back.

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.

Key stuck in ignition


This is a VERY common problem and there is a campaign though I am not sure it ever made it to full recall. The ultimate answer is to have the ignition switch replaced. In the meantime, you'll need to be able to get that key out. On the bottom side of the steering column there is a one inch square rubber plug that you pry out. You can then use your pointer finger to push the switch in. This will release the lock and let you turn your key to the off position and remove. You may want to leave this plug out as you'll be doing this a lot until it is repaired.

2006 Chevy HHR wont shift out of park


Probably a shift solenoid gone bad. Call dealer to see how you can by-pass to get it repaired. Some of them have an access cover you can remove and push down to release the shifter

Key stuck in ignition - 2007 HHR Automatic


I have posted this several times I have a 2006 HHR and I agree with you but here is a cheap solution. There is a pin that goes thru the shift cable that is falling out. Above the window buttons pry the little plastic holder out remove the 2 screws take the plastic off of the sides of the console you will see a black plastic frame with holes in it I cut a larger hole between 2 of the small holes with a hack saw on the driver side. Put the car in neutral drivers seat all the way back pull on the shift button and you will see the pin pull it out with a pair of needle nose pliers. I put 598 black loctite sealant on mine and reinstall. Shift back to park if you can get the key out and the doors unlock you have the pin in the right spot and it is making both switches when in park. You can see if it is on the switches by looking thru the hole where the little holder came out. The pin sticks out about a 1/2" on each side. Good luck

2006 Chevy HHR


start with the shifter. a common problem is the shifter is not making connection with the switch to tell the car its in park. jar ( hit) the shifter some and see if this doesnt let the key release. if this doesnt work then on plastic covering under the ignition switch is a small opening with a plastic cover. Remove the cover, feel with your finger until you find the release button for the key. The key will then come out.
