Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Instrument panel not working at all - all signals work o.k. , brakes, turn, etc.

Hi folks, I hope you can help me, my 2006 PT (standard) is in very good shape, well taken care of, but yesterday the instrument panel stopped displaying completely. All the signals are working externally, turn signals, brake lights, flashers etc. The dome light does not come on, and the "dinger" doesn't work when the door is open and the key is in the ignition. Also the power windows work, but the door locks don't. Could this be a relay problem? I tested the fuses in the main fuse box in the engine and all seem to be working, except three have no power to them, though the fuses are good when tested. I am currently out of work and need to solve this with the least expense possible. ---Any Suggestions?

    I have the exact same problem on my 2002 PT. It just started today so I thought I'd search for a solution, but I haven't found one yet.

    I got in the car to go somewhere and looked down and the lights in my clusters weren't working. The gauges are not reading with anything so I have no idea how much gas and how fast I am going!

Why do I have problems with the electrical dim headlights, no tail lights. The turn signals & brake lights work but the instrument panel won't light. Have checked all fuses & ground wires. Wha


With out tracing the wiring/voltages its not possible to be sure, but the likely cause is the headlight switch ... assuming you didn't miss any fuses/circuit breakers. Turn signals and brake lights are on an entirely different circuit; so thats not really relevant. The panel, tail, and head lights are all operated thru the same switch (though likely different contacts in that switch), so to be sure you should verify power into the switch vs no power out before replacing it. Hope that helps.

2002 pt cruiser--no brake lights--have tail lights--replaced brake light switch 3 times--brake lights work for about a week--ideas?


I would like to know if you have turn signals working in the rear. These are the same bulbs that brake lights use. If you don't have turn signals, then you need to replace the bulbs. If you do, then there is probably a wiring issue, or a circurt breaker problem. Hope this helps?

Dear folks from FixYa, I have a 1987 Jeep Comanche. One night recently only the headlights came on but no rear lights or instrument lights. The brake lights worked fine. The turn signals also worked fine....


Good chance that either the switch itself is bad and only making connection when it feels like it. I'd also check the power supply to the switch and make sure any of the connectors aren't corroded.
Brake and signal lights are on their own circuit....that's why they still work. Personally, I'm betting on the switch.

Pt cruiser tail lights front light & driverds door wont open


The headlight, brake and turn signal all run out of the turn signal switch. this is what causing you to loose those items. the door is a clip that has broken inside the door that goes to the handle, you will have to take the door panel off to find the rod that is hanging

2006 pt cruiser on drivers side rear turn signal


The turn signals flash depends on each and every bulb working correctly. When one bulb fails, you will notice a change in the flash frequency, as you describe.

Replace or repair the bulb that is not working, and you should be good to go.

The fuse panel is located under the instrument panel to the left of the steering column.

The hazard and turn signal flashers are located on the relay module.

HOPE this HELPS EASY way to DETERMINE witch one is for turn Signals is to Turn ON HAZARD FLASHER and this shows that the other one is for turn Signals PLEASE REMEMBER TO RATE ME MOST FOLKS DONT remember to. THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK
