One fo the nice features of the Chevy HHR is the Key Fob. The HHR Fob allows you to unlock and lock all of the HHR doors, set the security alarm, as well as engage the remote start, if your HHR is equipped with one.
One of the downsides of the hhr key fobs, is that they are prone to breaking internally. This can be fixed in a matter of ways. You can always buy a new key fob. The down side to buying a new keyfob, is that you will need to take the HHR Fob to a Chevy dealer in order to have the Fob programmed to your HHR. If the HHR Key fob is not progrmmed to your HHR, it will not work!
To open up your key fob, all you need to do is pry it open from the bottom edge of the fob, where the two piece of plastic are stuck together. You will see a tiny "slot" along the edge of the plastic where you can stick a key or screwdriver in to pop the case open. Once you have it open, you may find that the battery is loose. This seems to be the main cause of HHR key fobs inoperability. You need to put the battery back in its place. Sometimes, the solder joints that connect the battery holder to the circuit board are broken. If you are good with a soldering gun, you can make the correct repair, just be careful and take your time! If you do not want to solder the joints back together, I have seen once where an HHR key fob had a piece of cardboard wedge inside. Just a small cut up piece of cardboard, and this held the battery in place where it belonged, without having to solder the joints, i suppose.
