The socket size you will need is a 13mm. The top post bolts are 10mm and 13mm. It is also best to remove the air filter top cover which is easy. Just unclip the two hold downs and using a flathead screwdriver, loosen the clamp at the top. Then simply push it backwards and then out.

At the top center of the battery, if you push the air filter housing back a little you will see a bolt. You need a ratchet with an extention and a socket, about 5/8 but cant remember exactly. Loosen the bolt dont remove and it will release the battery.

Yes, i have a 2003 chrysler pt cruiser and i just put a new battery in it now my dash, headlights and dome lights flicker real bad?


The issue seems to be common among the 2001-2005 models of PT Cruiser. Changing the battery (from other answers on other years with similar issues) seems to short out things like the lights and the stereo. Some suggestions for fixing it, if you can't find where the electrical wiring for the lights attaches to the battery/computer, to make sure the wires aren't frayed, the plastic housing isn't worn away, and the grounding wire hasn't been severed...then a mechanic should be able to find them for you.

Ignition fuse is missing is that why my car wont start


Ah, yes.

But look, did it start at any time previously without that fuse? Something seems very odd. Those fuses don't fall out spontaneously. Was anyone doing work on the car?

This car is 15 years old. Personally, I have never heard of a vehicle that would do that. Try to find another vehicle that is newer. Nobody wants to get another vehicle, but it would be better than putting up with this problem.

During a cold spell, the door lock button and remote stopped working. I checked the fusses but I can't figure out what is wrong with it.


it's probably frozen...doesn't take much if there's moisture in your door mechanisim.
Try lock deicer or "rust chec"...and spray in your latch area on your door as well as in the "key lock" area.

If your remote still doesn't work change the battery in it.

2003 Cruiser - my car doors just unlock even when there is no key in the ignition. Also it randomly keeps unlocking and locking when i'm driving. Any advice? I have called the Chrysler dealers and they are...


Sounds like one of the door lock switches is shorting. If possible, disconnect the drivers' side door lock switch first and see if the problem continues. For a problem like this (out of warranty), and reputable repair shop would be less expensive than a dealership.

It could be your alternator. If the battery light is on thats usualy what thats a sign of and areason it may still run and not accelarate is your battery has enough juice to start it, but not to keep it running. If this is the case try hooking jumper cables to it and seeing if you can throttle it up with them hooked up.
