#25 of 100 2006 HHR NOT A JOKE!!!!!
May 05, 2007 (12:04 pm)
Hey guys, Just bought my first HHR and i am already having a problem, I know this is probably going to sound like a joke, but here it goes, anytime I depress the brake pedal my rear windshield wiper starts wiping, i have tried replacing the relay and to no avail it will not stop, i even tried driving the car without the relay, which solved my problem, but without the relay in, I cannot open my rear hatch, because of the elctronic locking switch, I took it to the dealer and they could not find the root of the problem, i tried contacting chevy but they keep giving me the run around, any help would be greatly appreciated, if you could email me the answer at Chillin_in_shelbyvilleyahoo.com i would appreciate it, i am in the military and do not have readily access to this site, thank you very much

I bought a HHR new yesterday 8-18-07 at a dealer and the outside temperature display worked for the test drive and drive home and today 8-19-07 the outside temperature display is now reading a constant 66 degrees (and the outside temp is in the 80s plus). Were you able to get yours fixed and if so what was needed? Has anyone else had this same outside temperature reading being stuck at 66 degrees? Thanks.

Ok, I have a 2007 HHR, bought the end of March 07. The OAT display seems really sluggish to respond. It eventually will, but sometimes takes 30 to 60 minutes. Since a lot of my use of the car is local, that means the OAT is often 20 degrees or so low, since my garage is much cooler than it is outside at this time of the year. There has to be a way to force it to react quicker!

Your car is new enough, I would have asked to have them take one off another new car in stock, so a car with no owner would be waiting for the part.
#31 of 100 Did I buy A POS?

Well...I just got an 2008 HHR LT1 full nine, the 1st day the remotes stopped working, So I went back to chevy they fixed that next the remote start stopped working, then the air presser stopped, the the sunroof locked up and to top it all of now there is a ticking coming from under the hood..Just so you know I only have 300 miles on the thing, and it has been the shop 4 time is less than a week....POS or what?

I wouldn't get too stressed. The remote can be fixed, so can the sunroof. The ticking you describe, there is a 99% chance its the fuel injectors and is a normal sound. My 2007 does that, but the ticking got quite a bit quieter after several thousand miles were on it. I can still hear it, but I have to listen for it now.

Sorry, I don't have one but it should be listed in the owners manual. Others may reply with the answer but if not check the manual.
