Question about Chevrolet HHR
Posted by Anonymous on
there are two situations that are close to what you describe.
First, is your key STUCK in the ignition? if so, there's a little panel under the steering column, open that, and feel round under there for the latch to release the key. I don't remember what the dealer SAID the issue was, but it was solved with one of many steering column replacements for a different problem.
If the key goes in and out, but won't turn the cylinder... you may have a bad cylinder, a ruined key(bent? run over by car? goobered up lands? plain worn out?) Or, your steering lock is engaged. If it's the first, that's a mechanic replacment(hopefully dealer covered). The second? get a new key. The third? Hold some tension on the steering wheel and turn the key.
Finally, if your battery is dead, or your solenoid is shot, the key won't turn/release either. Use the stuck key removal method, so you can lock your car while waiting on dealer repair.

replace the floor shifter. there is a switch on the shifter that allows the key to move. gm has had alot of problems with these shifters.

How about Fuel filter? How many miles on vehicle? In some cases a fuel filter can cause this as well as a "lazy" o2 sensor. If to lazy, ecm will set check engine lite.

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...

SOURCE: 2008 Chevy HHR headlight will
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.
Keep me posted!
