20 Most Recent 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Hatchback Questions & Answers


A P0304 code means that the the car's computer has detected that one of the engine's cylinders is not firing properly. In this case it's cylinder #4.-------- Symptoms may include:--------
  • the engine may be harder to start.
  • the engine may stumble / stumble, and/or hesitate.
  • other symptoms may also be present.
--------------- A code P0304 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty spark plug or wire
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Running out of fuel
  • Poor compression
  • Defective computer.
  • ---------------------
If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.-----------------
This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Usually there are two fuse boxes. One located under the hood which is labeled, the other is under a panel on the side of the dash which is concealed when the drivers side door is closed.

HI I may have found y the airbag light goes off and on on pt cruisers. there is a pair of wires that connect to the seat air bag pod, the wires run down the seat and to a connector in th floor. after long in vestigation i found that even thou the wires have a conduit protecting them the wires run under the foam pad and over a steel bar, which caused 1 wire to be cut inside yet there was no tell tale sign from out side the sleeve, it was only when I disconected the battery and then the connector from the airbag and the floor connector removed it and run a meter on the two I found it. when i "pulled" the leads the outer sleeve stretched exposing the fault, the wire had a very clean break in it which was odd but the fault. note that only one wire powers the air bag, the other is a feed to the PCM, hence they are connected at the ends hence not easy to trace and with saftey in mind you must not put meters on the wires while connected to any part of the airbag

Check for applicable trouble codes. How long since a tune-up?

playerfoul3,
i had the same thing happen to me. you have a smart key and there is a chip inside the key that must be read by the security skin in your ignition your car will start three times and if the chip is not presented to the security skin transducer then it will lock your ignition out so the car will not start. Two options one if you have a spare key use that and try turning the ignition on and leave the car set for 3-4 hours this will generally clear the lock out. If that does not work then you will need to get a new key from the dealer and have them flash your car's PCM or get the new blank key and call an area lock smith and have them reprogram your key and reset your antitheft module on your car.

Sounds as if the alternator is not charging the battery. Check the alternator for voltage it should put out around 13 volts at idle and normal operation. If it charges then the battery is defective. A good place to start is clean the battery cables to remove any corrosion and make good contact. Many an electrical problem has been solved by cleaning battery cables.

Hi I'm Peter, a mechanic maybe I can help.
Sounds like the compressor is going out. Is it cooling at all or just blowing warm air?

Something major has malfunctioned. The shut-down is performed to prevent damage to the engine. Get it serviced.

If the belt broke you are facing bent valves in the cylinder head. If the vehicle is single over head cam.... bet on bent valves. If the vehicle is dual over head cam ... you may be ok. The dealership should be able to perform a cylinder leak down test to determine whether or not the there is a valve issue before disassembling anything.

Sometimes when the battery dies the light comes on. The best thing to do is get it scanned at autozone or similar for codes
