This is the pressure light, nothing to do with the oil needing to be being changed, you have low oil pressure being indicated, this will destroy the engine if the light is really indicating low oil pressure, have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical test guage at a shop, if the oil pressure is ok then replace the oil pressure light sending unit.

Can someone help me my pt cruizer 2004 oil come one and blinks on and off and ding a lot if i change my oil would it stop and stays off


Yes, changing the oil will help, however, you will also have to clear the "change oil" light. Either figure out what buttons to press to delete that, or go to an auto parts store and ask if they can help you reset it.

Loose connection at the ignition switch causing an off on cycle If this is the case all lights that come on before the engine starts may flash. Also on the drivers side forward of the engine there is a fuse box with the relays (fuel and others) Check each for security and condition. they pull out like a fuse.

Oil light keeps going off


Do you mean the oil light keeps coming on ?
If it is the oil pressure warning light, and the engine oil level is full, the sending unit could be faulty.

I bought a used 2005 PT Cruiser and I love it. But it's been acting a little funny. The battery seemed weak and AutoZone checked it and said it was a little, so I bought a new one. In the meantime the...


the light is most likely coming on because of a faulty pressure sensor(common Chrysler problem) not a big deal,but i would still get it to a shop soon and have them check it just to be on the safe side,when those sensors go bad they also leak a little bit of oil and that could be the reason for your loss of a little oil,hope this helps

The only way to determine what is wrong and what it will cost to fix is to scan for codes that triggered the light to go on. The oil change should not have anything to do with the light (just check the oil to make sure they filled it to the proper level.) If oil level is ok, you can drive it, but have it checked soon because it could cause other problems if ignored for too long. Go to a parts store, most offer free checks of check engine light. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the PT's diagnostic port, and 'read' codes stored on the cars computer. These codes 'trigger' the check engine light to go on. They can then tell you the code#'s, what they mean, and how to fix the problem. If at that point you have any questions, post them and the code #'s here.

My Oil light and dinging won't go off


Replace oil pressure sensor. Location back side of engine block. A shield protects the sensor. A special deep well socket will take you less then 5 min to replace. Without the tool humm I might still be working on mine.
