How to Copy an Ignition Key for the Chevy HHR


The Chevrolet HHR is a crossover vehicle that offers features from both a wagon and an SUV. When purchasing your HHR from a dealership, you are usually supplied with two keys to your vehicle. If you should ever lose one, or need additional keys, you may purchase the keys and/or have them copied. An available upgrade offers the HHR’s ignition key with an internal chip that is used for theft security and that would need to be programmed for your specific vehicle. The standard HHR key does not offer the security chip, which makes duplicating the standard HHR key quite simple.

Things You'll Need

  • Original ignition key or key blank
  • Take your ignition key to a Chevrolet dealership. You can purchase a new key directly from the dealership and they can cut it for you. The key provided by the dealership will have the Chevrolet logo on it, just like your original key. If your key has an internal chip, then the dealership can supply a chipped key and program it to your HHR.

  • Take your ignition key to a locksmith or a home supply store. Both locksmiths and home supply stores will be able to make a copy of your key, but the key will not have the Chevrolet logo on it. If your key has an internal chip, home stores do not carry chipped keys.

  • Purchase a blank Chevrolet HHR chipped key on the Internet from a site such as Amazon. Once you have purchased the key, you may bring it to a local locksmith or auto mechanic with a copy of your original ignition key, and they will be able to make a copy for you. Most locksmiths and auto mechanics will be able to program the chip for you.

  • Call a locksmith to come make a copy of your key. Locksmiths may charge if they have to come to you, but if you have lost your original key, it may be necessary. A locksmith can cut a key for your ignition on location, but it can be expensive.
