Having problems with your 2007 Chevrolet HHR Special Edition ?

2007 HHR AC stops working when it gets too hot outside.

\015 When the outside temperature gets too hot, my thermostat no longer works, I cannot get a digital coolant reading, and my A/C stops working. I have taken it in for servicing before, and they claimed to have fixed the 2007 HHR. Low and behold. The problem resurfaced in Portland on my drive back to B.C.! Thanks Chevy! Any ideas?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

A local garage mechanic says the clutch has stopped working on ac that is why it blows hot air instead of cool says it will cost $900. to fix cause I have to buy the whole ac unit does this sound correct? when it is cool outside it does blow some cool air but once the day gets hot it gives nothing but hot air


Have you tried charging the ac system? most ac compressors have a pressure switch that will not allow the relay to engage the clutch if the coolant pressure is low. $15 can of r134a and maybe a $20 Haynes manual is well worth the price difference, ... 2004 Kia Sedona

I would agree. If you wire it direct the wires should not get hot.The resistor will get hot under normal conditions because the resistance is how the motor speed is controlled.So you are probably right the motor is failing.You could get ... Mercedes-Benz S500

I have a 1992 Buick Century that stalls. It doesn't stall when I start it up or make it down the road but when it hits a hot point (Takes some Bay Area stop and go traffic or stopping and waiting at too many lights) It gives up on me. It will stall and it is hard to get back going again. If I let it sit for a couple mins I can get it working fine again. It doesn't appear hot. I have all my fluids in it the systems seem to working fine. There is no smoke no studdering just dies. I recently go

Hi, I am a Sri Lankan and drive a 1995 Mercedes E300 Diesel. Since a few days ago the Air Condition stopped working when the car was idling in traffic. But as soon as the car starts to move the Aircon blows cold air and starts working. I checked the outside radiator/condenser Aircon fan to see whether it works and found that it normally works. However I couldn't get down in traffic to check whether it has stopped functioning when the problem came. The outside air temperature this ti

1990 acura, when it gets hot outside, the check engine light comes on and wont let me start my car. Happens after about 12 hrs of sitting outside. Starts fine in the morning on my way to work, but then when i get off, the check engine light is on, and it wont let me start the car. At all other times the car runs just fine. Starter is working well with engine sounding like going to start but doesnt. At times if i let the key in ignition, the light will go off, and then i can start the car


Unfortunately anything could be causing your check engine light to come one. You'll actually need to have it towed to autozone or someplace like that to have the car scanned to determine what is causing the issue ... 1990 Acura Integra Hatchback

I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty. The radiator cooling fan stopped working and the car almost overheated. I replaced the relay with the new style with the cooling pins and the fan now comes on, though intermittently. When I drive it with the A/C on, it works initially. If I stop somewhere and get back in the car, the A/C will only blow hot, and the temp gauge will go up if I stop in traffic. I can hear the A/C clutch kicking on and off continuously at this point. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn


No but there are a couple of cooling fan switches that could be causing your problem both are mounted on the motor one near the thermostat housing the other will be in the block one near the thermostat usually controls the fans. ... 2003 Jeep Liberty

I have a Chrysler cirrus 2000 lx and around a certain time of day 12-7pm when it's really hot outside. None of my gauges work. The a/c doesn't get cold and my windshield wipers does not work. I related the problem with heat and time of day because whenever it's rainy/ gloomy outside everything works perfectly and also when the sun is down. Everything works perfectly


Sounds like a relay or wiring harness connector is loosing connection when it gets hot. You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams needed to troubleshoot the problem. It could also be the key switch. ... Cars & Trucks

Re; 2000 Buick Park Ave. The door handle (driver's door) suddenly stopped working from the outside. It does not have the tension that it used to have when it was working. It will work from the inside, and will lock and unlock from the inside or outside using the key. I have removed the door panel and the 'actuators" (rods) seem to be in place. I am concerned about access to get the old one out and new one in and connected to actuators. How difficult is it to replace, any hints, special tools.


Hi. This is not actuator problem. This is door handle issue. If the car panel is still open, check the door handle. There should be a metal rod connecting to handle going to the door mechanism. Rod might not be in place or disconnected. Check also th ... 2000 Buick Park Avenue

A/c problems I have a 2000 Honda Civic LX. My a/c stopped working regularly. I've figured out that if I'm on the highway and I put it on cruise control it'll work fine, like it used to, but when I start slowing down it just starts blowing air the same temperature as outside. Recently I found that even on the highway it won't work at all if it's too hot outside. I've checked the coolant and it's fully charged. Any suggestions?


I also agree that you have a problem with the ac condenser fan. Easy way to check this is to have someone turn on the ac while you watch to see if the fan comes on. You can also disconnect the fan and with two wires connect the fan directly to your b ... 2000 Honda Civic

My 2005 chevy silverado 5.3 liter is overheating. it runs at about 250 from 0-45. once i get past 45 and get some airflow it cools right down. i though my thermostat was stuck but shouldnt it stay hot at all times if that was it? other than that the electric fans are working fine. also my heater would go from hot to cool. could it be anything other than my thermostat?


This sounds like low coolant level,or air in the system, you said the fans work they should cool it down just like the air flowing through it, this tells me the coolant flow is not good until higher rpms,try reving the motor and see if it cools down ... Chevrolet 1500

I live in Florida where it is very hot. Sometimes, after the car has been sitting outside all day at work, the A/C will blow very hot air for several minutes instead of cold air. The dealer says they can't fix the problem because by the time I get there it is working ok. It never happens in the morning where the car is in a garage. It seems to have an effect when I use my windshiel sun shield.
