Open the door, pull on the that rubber boot while working the locks to confirm that there are broken wires, or slice it open and you will almost surely find broken wires. The contact indicated that there had been no failures with the vehicle until the manufacturer had the dealer complete a manufacturer recall repair for the ignition switch. The radio will not turn off with the driver's door but will when other door are open. I brought it to the dealer to have it checked out and they advised me it was a bad sensor and changed it. The approximate failure mileage was 118,000. He said the computer gave him limited information. In addition, the speedometer failed to provide a reading and the instrument cluster gauges failed to fully function after the repair.
They said not a warranty item costs apprx. My hhr would not crank. Today the service manager reported no problem with the car could be identified. The cause of the failure was not diagnosed or repaired. The vehicle was taken to a private mechanic and he was unable to duplicate the failure.
During the last two months I have had to use the release switch under the steering wheel every time I turn the vehicle off. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the technician was unable to diagnose the failure. The vehicle had been taken back to the dealer. Since then I have had 1.

Dyd Complaint Number: 10649500 Incident Date: May 16, 2014 Date Added to File: October 23, 2014 Description of the Complaint: I had the ignition changes as of a recall.
The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 56,000. The vehicle stalled several times. I had the alternator replaced then the battery, then both replaced again. In addition, the front end of the vehicle would shake abnormally when the brakes were depressed. Locate the code reader plug in point under the dash.
This seems to all be controlled by the ignition switch. The car would restart on the shoulder of the tollway but he first incident caused the transmission to shift hard and almost shut the car off when coming to a stop. Press it again to confirm. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnosis and the contact was informed that the vehicle was operating as normal. No power steering Stabilizer light on.
After about a year-and-a half of this intermittent problem, my key would not come out of the ignition at all. It only comes on at starting never while driving. Brought to dealer in july or aug of 2008. With modest pressure, I was able to shift. The manufacturer was also contacted and could not provide an estimated date for when the vehicle would receive the recall repairs. In addition, when the gear was shifted into park, the ignition switch failed to turn to the off position and the key did not release from the ignition switch.
This all started after we had to jump start the battery because my son left the key on for a long time. The contact stated that while driving approximately 40 mph, the passenger side air bag warning light illuminated. Problem persisted again in jan 08 car is back at the dealer again 5th time for check engine light this time I was advised when doing the diagnostic check they got a code for a miss. This has happened a few times already, but makes the car very dangerous to drive at night. The discussion boards say there are multiple reasons this happens, not just the throttle condition. Then one day I drove it approx 15 miles all was good.
