    This happened to us tonight!! My son went outside to get something out of the car and it was completely dead.He put the key in the ignition and than we couldn’t get it back outWe couldn’t get to the battery because we can’t get the trunk open because the car was dead and there is no other way to get into the trunk because the battery is dead. I guess we will have to wait until morning and crawl through the car to see if we can get in to charge it. At least we were able to get the key out of the ignition after watching the video!!! What a joke!

    Add me to the list! 2009 HHR can't turn the key to kill the engine. I'm thankful for the previous posts, but the push button release doesn't work with mine. Plan to call the dealership and the 866 number in the morning and have this resolved…hopefully!

    • Gary H. February 18, 2014 at 10:40 pm

      Update…Called the dealership. They told me my warranty had expired and I would have to pay. Called the 866 number for GM and they informed me that my car was covered then they called the dealership and told them to fix my car for free. Picked it up today…NO CHARGE!!!

    it was televised national news about a recall for ignition problem. Also you had better have a recall about the water leak problem when it rains the water run in around the cowling and run in the right side floor also could be asafty problem

  • kathy May 15, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    same problem dealer towed the car and fixed it for free since this is a GM defect

  • Kathi July 26, 2014 at 10:38 pm

    Call dealership, if you haven't already. Tell them you want the forms to fill out to be reimbursed. Same thing happened to me. I had to put out over $300.00. I did get it back. And pretty quickly.
    Good luck!

    after the recall was suppose to be fix had problems keys stuck , stereo system all messed up , the Battery was dead this was the third time all they did was give me a hard time made me look like a liar or I was making it all up . I think cause it was a recall there tring to make a extra buck before I brought it my HHR in it running just fine its messed up , tell you watch on the people who work on your HHR or any recall car they will try some more is wrong with your car

    Same thing happened to me. Thanks to youtube, got the key out but the battery is dead. Will never buy another GM product again, ever. Toyota here I come.

    I have a 06 Monte Carlo ss and have been experiencing the same problem where the key won’t turn the ignition completely back to off it gets stuck in the accessory position, my key comes out of the ignition at acc position and run position, while driving I have lost electrical power and now my ignition won’t even start my car and dealer will not fix my car all they did was replace my key insert to make the hole at the top of my key smaller but the damage is done my ignition is shot and neither the dealer or Gm will correct the problem due to months of dealing with a faulty ignition switch because my car is not listed but it is manufactured by gm it sucks that I am forced to pay 1500.00 out of pocket to correct a mechanical defect that was kept hush hush by the manufacturer and being gone unnoticed has resulted in a broken ignition switch! Not to mention accidents caused by loss of steering and stalling it’s sickening and sad

    My 2009 hhr developed a problem starting after my replacement ignition switched was installed. Sometimes If I can turn off the auto lights while starting the car I can get it to start. I have had to jump-start it as many as 3- times a day! I still have not gotten the new power-steering motor. 1st and last chevy for me!

  • kathryn June 19, 2015 at 7:32 pm

    Well, I guess I am not the only one. They finally got around to fixing the steering wheel problem(recall, key in ignition falling out). Now my key got stuck in the ignition and I could not get it out. Overnight the battery ran down and I could not back it out of the garage to get jumped so I could go to the Chevy dealership. Called them, and they said to have it towed down there at my expense. They said I needed to find someone with a battery charger.

  • laura August 15, 2015 at 12:17 pm

    It happened my 2009 hhr is sitting in my drive key in battery drained cant get key out!!!!! Call dealer said I had to get car to them and pay for it … REALLY NO WAY. So up set I’m not a richperson I live payday to pay day. I cant do this.

  • davina rhine September 24, 2015 at 7:35 pm

    I am having the same issue with my Chevy HHR 2007… post recall update for the bad ignitions. I am dealing the dealership right now since this is clearly a defect!

  • Stephanie Goforth October 25, 2015 at 2:39 am

    my daughter has only had this car for 2 months and that’s all she has had with this 2007 Chevy cobalt and now we can’t get the key out of the ignition what the heck.. some people don’t have money to fix a major problem like this.. CHEVY STEP UP AND FIX YOUR MISTAKES WE PAY FOR A VEHICLE THAT WAS DOOM FROM GET GO THIS IS YOUR ALL MESS UP NOT THE CUSTOMERS THAT GET OUT AND TAKE A WHOLE PAYCHECK TO PAY FOR A CAR THAT WAS ALREADY MESS UP..
