Hi there, thanks for writing in.

If your 2010 HHR is having problems not cranking, but you just replaced the battery, then it's highly likely that you have a broken starter or damaged electrical relay somewhere. When the vehicle shuts off all of the sudden as you indicated, it's typically caused by an electrical malfunction; most of the time in the ignition system.

The best way to know for certain where the problem exists is to contact one of our professional mechanics to complete a no start inspection at the convenience of your home. This will allow them to pinpoint any electrical or mechanical problems you're having so they can complete the right service repairs.
