33 problems related to power steering light on have been reported for the 2010 Chevrolet HHR.
While exiting onto the freeway at 45 mph the power steering light went on and the steering didn't work. I realized the it was difficult to maneuver the steering wheel and car and got off on the first exit which was 2 miles away. I tried not to panic as I had my kids in the car. I then went to the nearest gas station. Turned off the car to cal my husband. And when I tested the car to turn it back on the power steering light was off and then the steering wheel was normal. I decided I needed to try and get home, we were 45 minutes away from home. As I drove the car again at a steady speed I stayed on the slowest lane and while driving on the freeway again the power steering stopped working at 65 mph. Since then it still happens once we drive it. I have a video of when it goes on. I safely recorded the malfunction. This is our only transportation and we just bought it from carmax in may.

My power steering light came across the dash and I could not steer my car to good. It will not go out now and I have 2 kids that we almost got into an accident when this happened. I have only had my car a year and a half and I think someone should be fixing it for me at no cost.
Driving on interstate and the steering warning light came on, the steering became almost impossible to manage. Pulled off at next exit thinking I would check the fluid level. Couldn't locate the fluid reservoir and read the manual to find out that the power steering is electrically controlled. Came close to losing control of the vehicle at high speeds.

On 03/30/2014 the power steering light went on my Hhr panel and the power steering went out. At that time I could power off the car and the power steering would work for one to two days. Within a week of this, the power steering would go out each time the car was started and driven within 5 minutes or less. It occurs if you are driving at 5 mph to 65 mph and if the car is cold or hot. This is becoming more of a safety issue as it requires extra strength to maneuver the car since no power steering is available. At this time Chevrolet has announced a recall on 03/31 for the 2010 Hhr but nothing has shown up when I put my VIN number on their website. I am concerned about not having power steering but we need the car for transportation. Today is June 5 and this issue occurs every day and no recall notice has happened with my VIN. The mileage was adjusted from the original complaint.
I own a 2010 Chevrolet Hhr. While driving approximately 75 mph in the fast lane on I-75n. The power steering sensor light had illuminated and the power steering suddenly malfunctioned making the steering wheel stiff and almost impossible to move. I was somehow able to safely across 3 lanes to off ramp, luckily immediately to the right was able to glide into a parking lot. Parked the vehicle and turned ignition off, checked all fluids under hood, read manual and advised to take keys out and restart. So I restarted the engine and the vehicle operated as normal, the warning signal was gone and wheel was moving. I reported this to gm immediately and have taken vehicle to dealership, where they do not seem to be acting as if this is urgent. They have stalled 2 days now without diagnosing, they will not provide me with a loaner vehicle and therefor I have no choice then to continue to drive the vehicle, knowing the severe threat it has to myself and others on the road. This car is a death trap. I have had numerous issues with this vehicle. I take it in for an issue atleast every other month. Also since steering issue have had the "air bag service" light has come on several times. Will have dealership check this malfunction out too. I think this means if my steering goes out and I crash, then I will not have an airbag to save me. . I call this car "christine"!! I am very upset that gm and the dealership do not handle this malfunction more seriously. Death trap!.
I was driving down the road when all of a sudden the power steering light came on. I went to pull into a parking lot and the car hit a curb because the power steering shut off. I shut the car off and turned it back on and the power steering worked again. Started driving home and with in 5 miles it happened again. Drove it direct to the mechanic. They said it was the power steering motor.
As I was driving, the power steering light came on and the power steering went out. The next day, I took it to a repair shop. The problem had disappeared. Several weeks later, the problem recurred. I was advised to take it to a GMC dealership. The dealership replaced the electronic motor assist motor (recalled on other VIN numbers). And they charged me a hefty fee for the replacement.
I have been having issues with the power steering light coming on the dash as I am driving. It occurs randomly, but after reading several websites I am very concerned that this is a common problem that needs to be addressed and a recall issued. Once I turn off the car, and turn it back on the steering wheel softens from its previous rigid state. I never know when it might occur and that is disturbing. Through research I have found that this is the same system that is in the chevy colbalt and a recall was issued, so why not the Hhr? it appears that a lot of consumers are experiencing this and we need corrective action!!!.

I was turning in the driveway of an apartment building and a bell went off and the steering got really hard to turn. I looked at the dash and saw the power steering light had come on. I got out my book and it says the power steering doesn't need maintenance, but to call the dealer if it happens. Well, I restarted the car and the light went out, so I drove to the store a few blocks away and it did it again. Luckily I wasn't going fast or in heavy traffic or a really bad accident could have happened and lives could have been lost. I have had ignition problems, I couldn't turn off the vehicle, loss of engine power, rotor replaced. Two of the same side broken inside driver door handles and bad gas mileage. The steering has been the most dangerous so far. I read on-line how many people this has happened to and I wonder when they will recall this vehicle. When someone dies?.
While driving the car the power steering light comes on, there is a ding, and suddenly the power steering goes out. It first happened 10 days ago and happens at random times everything the car is driven. The power steering will reset if the engine is shut off and restarted, but it will soon go out again within seconds or minutes. This is a very dangerous issue and has caused us near accidents. I see that there are many, many complaints about this issue on Hhr's of multiple model years. Please address this issue. I have never had power steering on a vehicle just go out before. This is a late model car and an issue of this type and of this frequency definitely points to a defect and not a wear and tear issue. A recall is needed!.

Slow speed made u turn power steering light came on hard to steer,took to a repair shop near by they came back and told me electric motor needs replaced, vehicle only has 45500 miles on it. .
While driving the power steering warning light dinged and I had been making a turn which almost caused a accident not knowing why it went out. I can drive the car for 1 or 2 miles and it keeps going out and I have to restart the car for it to be working again but im told it some type of module that controls it and its not covered by any warranty. I think chevy needs to correct this issue before someone is killed for a steering issue . I see I am not the only one with this issue there have been others.
I was coming home and heard a chime, then the power steering light came on and I lost control of the steering. Could not turn the wheel, I turned off the car and restarted it, worked for a few minutes, long enough so I could park it. I had the car towed to the dealership the next day, they ran diagnostics and repaired it under warranty. I was thankful for that, but I am concerned about other car owners that do not know about the problem and may be driving on the freeway at a much faster speed when the power steering shuts down. There should be a total recall on this defect!.

I was driving down a busy street when my car starting beeping(warning chime) and the power steering light came on.
