The problem is most likely in the actual key cylinder. They tend to bind up. Removing the cylinder / tumbler and cleaning the housing somtetimes works, but replacing the cylinder is the best repair.
Cleaning somtimes will only last for a few days or so till it sticks once again.

If the vehicle has remote start, then yes, you can have the dealer program the system and remotes.
Expect to pay 1 hour labor.

That's right.
If the HHR has the correct option on the option label, then you can get remotes and have the system programmed.
