1 Brake Light On problem of the 2009 Chevrolet HHR

Brake lights remain to be on as pedal is not pressed and esc, traction control do not work also this is a hazard to the point where I have had road rage against me because of the brake lights not turning off issue needs to be resolved through gm as a recall on these vehicles this is not the only 2009 chevy Hhr that has had this problem.

2 Brake Light On problem of the 2010 Chevrolet HHR

On going issue of brake lights intermittently coming on without touching brake pedal. First noticed something wrong because cruise control wouldn’t activate. Found problem at night when I could see the glow from my brake lights on the top inside edge of my rear hatch. Replacing brake switch above pedal did not fix problem. Sounds kind of funny, but I got brake lights to go off while setting in driveway and pounding my center console out of frustration. Internet search found other gm vehicles with similar problems and frustrated owners that took vehicles to dealerships that didn’t fix their problem. Issue appears to be circuit board related with circuit boards located on passenger side lower center console. A sharp rap with the palm of my hand in that area will always get the brake lights to go off when they shouldn’t have been on. Doesn’t happen often, but seems crazy to have to keep checking to see if my cruise will set so I know if my brake lights are on. Dealership claims they haven’t seen this problem, though as I stated earlier, internet search will find other gm owners with similar issue of brake lights on without touching brake pedal. Have had issue setting still or moving. Have had cruise kick off going down the road when the brake lights came on without touching the brake pedal.

3 Brake Light On problem of the 2009 Chevrolet HHR

My 2009 Hhr has what is referred to as the may 15, 2014 gm tail light malfunction. The malfunction is caused from faulty wiring and causes the brake lights illuminate without touching the brake pedal and they remain on while driving. This malfunction also disables safety features like electronic stability control ¿ which tries to correct for skids ¿ and panic braking assist, which is designed to make sure the vehicle¿s full braking power is being used in an emergency. It also disables the cruise control and the traction control. In 2014 g. M. Said it knew of hundreds of complaints and 13 accidents associated with the problem. I have had several near accidents and several issues of road rage from other drivers since my Hhr began the malfunctioning in February 2014 which is when I first contacted gm to get it fixed. Since then I have filed complaints with the NHTSA, the federal trade commission, the state of wisconsin consumer protection agency and gm but have not yet had anyone step up and fix the problem. Since the malfunction causes the bcm to lose memory with the brake positioning sensor I did take the vehicle to a certified gm dealership and had them re-learn the memory between the two. This solved the problem temporarily and lasted about two months. I cannot afford to have this done every two month as a solution. Gm needs to be ordered to fix the issues correctly before someone is fatally injured.
