I've been wanting a PT Cruiser since they 1st came out. I literally drove a 2005 PT convertible off a used car lot today and inside of 6 hours it dies waiting at a stoplight. Check engine light comes on. It dies a few more times, again while idling at stops. so I drive to my local Autozone to check for codes. He said it is showing 12 different trouble codes. I hope I haven't bought a lemon!

It is supposed to have a 1 month/1000 mile warranty so I'll have to see if they back it up. I traded a very good F350 for this thing!

Turns out it has everything to do with the key. I recieved 2 when we purchased the car. One is thicker with Chrysler on it. The other thinner one is a cut key. That one was giving us fits at 1st. Now the chipped key is not working from time to time. Is this something I have to live with, or is there a fix or at least a way to disable it and just live without the security of the chip? Looks like the 1 month/1000 mile warranty isn't going to help as the car lot wants me to "keep trying it".
