My Esc Light coming on ..on my 2009 chevy Hhr How could i fix da ussue


That light is the stability control warning. If the vehicle was subject to any loss of traction or side skid, the light will go out on its own after a number of ignition starts. If this is the result of bad alignment, you have to have it put on an alignment rack. It could also be a wheel speed sensor that is not working right.

I'm having problems with my 2008 Chevy HHR - acting up but no dashboard warning lights showing. Please see details below for a full description of what's happening.


Most likely sensor connections and signal delivery to ECU. Road salt creates corrosion problems in connections. Start with a very careful visual inspection of all wiring from sensors and their connections. Double check connections of Throttle position
sensor. that may not have a good connection even though it was?
replaced. There may be some relationship with speedometer and ECU. Fuel supply system may be a problem. Fuel pump, Fuel pressure regulator, Fuel pump relay. can cause erratic behavior.

I'm having strange problems with my 2008 Chevy HHR LT - no dashboard warning lights come on and the installation of a new throttle body did not solve the problem (see details below).


sounds your variable valve timing solenoids are going out there easy to replace their on the top passenger side of engine you do have to remove the air filter resonator tube to see them, replace the intake and exhaust solenoid at the same time

2009 HHR won't start. Battery is good.


Is the security light on or blinking?If not then do you have power to the starter.You can check this with a test light.You should have power when you turn the key to start.The test light should light up.Should be the small wire.I believe it is purple in color.If the security light is on then you will have to get the codes to see what is causing the no start.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I have anexclamation point on my dashboard. its a 2007 suzuki forenza. what does it mean


on a Suzuki , Your vehicle is equipped with Speed Sensitive Power Steering (SSPS).
This is a computer-controlled power steering assist system.
The warning light you are describing will come on briefly when you turn the ignition to ON as a check to show you the bulb is working.
Then it should go out after a few seconds. If the warning light does not come on, have it fixed so it will be able to warn you if there is a problem.
If the warning light stays on, or comes on while you are driving, the SSPS system may not be working.
Your computer will need to be scanned to determine what the problem is with your SSPS system.
