I HAD A 2006 HHR 2LT and it did the same thing. Had to get the rear deforgger fixed 2 times. After they fixed it the first time ( warrenty ) it came back and it didnt come on with the starter. 1 month later, now out of warrenty it stopped working. Took it back to the dealership, they said it was another issue (burnt wires), and that I would have to pay for it... But when I got it back, low and behold it came on when using the car starter... Now I don't own a chevy anymore.

Sorry to tell you this but my friend has a 2009 HHR and he told me that it's normal for the rear deffoger put put itself on automatically when using your remote starter on a cold day.
He showed me the paragraph in his owners manual and found it in mine also. So they worked on yours twice and then told you about a burnt wire issue and all the time it was normal.

I do not have a remote start and have not experienced the problem.

Dusterman...this happens only when using the remote starter. If I start my HHR normally nothing of this happens.
When starting it with the remote starter and then turning the key in the ignition it's shuts off as soon as the key is turned.
If you don't have a remote start...it's normal that your HHR doesn't do it.. it activated by the remote starter.
#1513 of 1606 2010 HHR LS Auto Steering Column rattles & left rear strut in Wheel rattles
Dec 29, 2010 (5:03 pm)
My steering column rattles when I hit bumps and the rear left strut rattles as well as various other rattles in My 2010 HHr with 6000 miles. Took it to two different dealers and this is what happened:
First Dealer looked at it in October 2010 twice and said they would have to tear the car apart and keep it a week or more to fix it and they said there was no guarantee on fixing it.
The second dealer looked at it in early November 2010 and said nothing was wrong.
What should I do? I love my HHR but it sounds like I got 106000 miles on the car instead of 6000 miles.
I need help!!!!
Any advice would do!!!

Dec 29, 2010 (5:09 pm)
My HHR rattles and something feels loose in the left rear wheel well especially when I go down the driveway and down the parking ramp with groved cement you can really hear it and it is annoying. I brought I to the dealer and they say its fine that they can't duplicate it and I should just live with it and turn up the radio and I won't hear it!!!
Can somebody help me or offer advice!!!
#1515 of 1606 2010 HHR LS rattle behind the dash on drivers side
Dec 29, 2010 (5:15 pm)
I have a rattle on my 2010 HHR LS with Auto that sounds like somebody left a screwdriver or wrench behind the speedometer inside the dash or behind the dash behind the steering column. Dealer says theres nothing they can do, its part of the car, live with it.
Why is it I take a Malibu for a drive and it sounds perfect and then I drive my 2010 HHR which is only 5 months old and it sounds like a Mexican rattle trap?
I want to believe in this car!!!

Wow, I sincerely feel for you gentlemen that are having these problems with your HHR! I have a 2007 and have not had any of these problems. I cannot imagine what it could be, but it never hurts to get a second opinion, perhaps from a paint and body shop. That does not sound normal, and it should be something that can be remedied. The only complaint I could possibly have about mine is the gas mileage. One tank of gas gets me 340 miles, is that normal? Good luck with your troubles.

You didn't mentioned if your fuel economy was city or highway.
Mine is a 2010 2LT with the 2.4L and on a tank of gas I get...city 396 miles and highway 488 miles in summer, in winter it's a bit less.
About that rattling sound, mine has one to but I figure it comes from the suspension (shocks) they make a squeaking noise when the weather is cold but usually no rattles nowhere.
I love my HHR in every way and wouldn't change it for nothing else.
