The HHR requires a bypass module which controls the starter resistance, and the door locks. This vehicle has a one wire lock system which locks the doors by sending a certain resistance, and unlocks by sending a different resistance. If you are using a compatible bypass module, check all your connections to make sure they are connected tightly, and then double check the programing you used for the bypass module. You may have to unplug and re-program the module in order to fix the problem. If you are not using a module then you need to double check the wire you are tapped into and double check the resistance. Let me know if this does not apply to what you are doing and if so I will need more info in order to trouble shoot for you.

How do i take the entire drivers side door off of my 2011 HHR? Its a DIY project n cant afford what the insurance isnt covering. My car was T-boned and wont even open. Basically smashed shut.

You need to have the door forced open before you can access the hinges and remove it.
Remove the interior door trim and the door can be unbolted at the door hinge area. Examine the door on the undamaged passenger side before you do anything.

My door will not unlock sometime Chev HHR 2008

I had an issue with my driver's side door lock this weekend. Twice, I could not unlock the door, had to call AAA. Are there any other locks on this 2008 HHR? My warranty has expired, car has 31,000 miles on it. Very frustrating. Do not have a remote, this is on access via key.

How do I open the gas tank door on the Chevy hhr

There is no inside release on the HHR. Simply press in on the rear of the gas fill door and it will "pop" open. Make sure you press it in again when you close it...

Where is the battery located on a 2006 chevy hhr

NO it is NOT under the hood or the fender IT IS in the back under the plastic cover that covers the spare tire. Open your tailgate, lift the cover that hides your spare tire. The battery is between the spare tire and the back bumper. If the battery is dead you can not open the tailgate, You need to open the side door and climb into the back. Who ever thought about putting the battery back there and having an electric tailgate is a nut! Good work GM

HHR back hatch problem

There is a small hook on the right(driver side) of the latch that you can push with a screwdriver (it is hard to see you have to poke around a little)after you take the panel plug out of the rear door cover.I have the same problem I found that that the coil has become week and it does not have enough power to push the lath open. GOOD LUCK
