  1. PT Cruiser
    Hi. I hope this is the right place for this and this is how you ask a question about a PT. We bought a 2006 in May of this year The master switch that is in the middle of the dash had a broken middle (lock all) button and the drivers side window didn't want to go up or down. We purchased one...

    Hey all, New to the group and excited to rub elbows with those much smarter than me regarding PTs! I recently replaced the instrument panel and now the speedometer and tach are about 20% slower than before, meaning, when i'm going 60, it's showing 40. Same with tach...3k shows about 2k. How do I...

    Brand new member. I own my dream car - a yellow 2007 PT Cruiser turbo limited with 155k miles. We are getting ready to move 3200 miles. The plan was to tow the Cruiser. However, in the last few weeks, it is stalling when I drive. There is NO similarity with stalls. They are totally random. I've...

    I have a 2002 PT Cruiser Limited. I am sorry I did not take a picture. The under hood fuse for the transmission is a 20 Amp fuse and it is #17. The fuse is supported by some sort of locking clip, and I am scared to break it. Does anyone know how to remove this locking clip to change out the fuse?

    Selling the wife's Cruiser. Red with charcoal interior. It has 128k miles. I replaced the turbo about a year ago along with the new oil feed line.

    I have a 2004 PT GT which I have used as a donor car for a project. I have many parts available which I do not need. Most of these parts are already pulled from the car. They are located in East Texas presently, could be brought to Central Illinois shortly, and/or could be shipped out right away...

    Best start with some background. My 01 PT, non-turbo, 5spd is won't start. I started having issues about a month ago, when it left me stranded about 15 miles from home. Trailered it home, replaced the camshaft position sensor and the crankshaft position sensor, and fixed the frayed wire to the...

    Driving at highway speed; engine started racing (like the clutch had been pushed in while pressing the gas pedal), and oil light went on. I pulled over immediately and shut the car off; had it towed home. Oil is full (i.e. none lost when the issue occurred on the road and none dripping onto the...

    Hi all. First time poster here. Has anyone converted a Breeze or base model Stratus to rear disc brakes? The model I have is a '98 Breeze base model with power front disc/NON anti-lock rear drums. These are horrible. I know I will need disc specific parts i.e. Parking brake cables, caliper...
  14. PT Cruiser
    About a month ago we started having trouble with my wife's 2004 PT cruiser turbo model. The car has about 150,000 miles so it's getting pretty tired, but we can't afford to buy anything new. The issues began on the way home from work when the car quit running on her. She was able to restart it...

    Going off my research here and other places, I'm guessing I have a TIPM related issue. 2007 PT Cruiser, 120,000 miles How it started: I noticed the Battery+ light on the dash came on, and checked under the hood. A very large and sudden buildup of corrosion had started on the positive battery...

    Hi, new here, I have a 2002 base model manual transmission PT Cruiser. We've been stymied by the "idiot" light for the electrical system. Replaced the alternator and the control module (twice) but I still get the dash light intermittently after driving 3 or 4 miles. When I shut the engine and...

    I have a 2001 Cruiser that I bought from a friend last week. I noticed that it did not come with a front license plate, and I just got a ticket for it today. Does the cruiser come with a front license plate, or do I have to install one myself? To my knowledge I thought Cruisers did not come with...

    After being unable to diagnose a refrigerant leak on my 05 ptc gt. It turns out the low side hose that runs from the compressor to the accumulator was leaking, but mostly when driving the car. Air would hold a charge for a week when not driving it. Make a short run to the grocery store etc and...
