Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
This has happened several times .I have checked all the trailer lights plugs and works on my other vehicles. This service man said he had to replace a fuse (or is there something in the computor that needs resetting?) in the cruizer when it happened the first time but I dont understand why the top brake light is ok?? I,m also wondering whether the trailer socket should be connected to this . Al seems rather strange.
Does it go back to normal with out the trailer connected. as both mine when the trailer is detected on the wiring it turns the abs to mid setting. , as it cannot calculate the extra load. also the trailer loom can put more drain on the electrics and there is a voltage reader computer built into most vehicles this is what detects a blown bulb. check the fuse connection to the fuse and the box. in the fuse box. a weak fuse or fuse holder can make the bulb blow.

If they were not wired seperate you would be driving around with your break lights on all the time, yes there are 2 filaments the one that sticks out further than the other is the break light. Your problem is most likely the break light switch, most break light switches are located under dash around the steering colume, it works off the break peddel arm, looks like a little plunger with an electrical plug going to it.

Let's assume you've checked the bulbs and are happy they are serviceable. Therefore you can examine the brake switch input and output (while pedal is depredded)Usually located in the pedal box area of the drivers foot well ! Good luck
