Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

I have a 2001 pt cruiser. For the past few days the oil light goes on occasionally when I slow down to a stop. I checked the oil and it is at a good level. I have over 1000 miles to go go before my next oil change is due. The light stays on for a second or so and then goes back off. A few times it would go on and off two times in a row. Can you help??

This might be a sign of a weak oil pump

2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser My flashers & blinkers suddenly stopped working. I was told I needed a Lighting Control Module. I bought it but don't know how to install it or where it goes


Messing with the electronics is best left to pros, was it a surge that burnt out the first one? Automotive electronics are sensitive to 12 volt flashes!

Oil light flicker on and off on 2006 pt cruiser


There is a possibility that the oil pressure sensor wire located on the engine block is either incorrectly fitted or the wire is off completely and touches an earth (negative) source, causing your warning light to occasionally flicker

If your car's overheating, make sure you have enough coolant in the system. While you're under the hood look for disconnected wires near dash then check your fuse box for broken fuses. Please check your coolant, little to no coolant = a new engine ~$5000!

The mileageclock do not work and stayin one


I would check for a broken or loose wire at the speedometer sensor on the transmission, or a bad speedometer sensor (VSS. Vehicle speed sensor).

2005 pt cruiser stopped running and either the engine or oil light came on, what could cause this?


On newer vehicles, if the engine loses oil pressure, it will shut off to prevent catastrophic damage caused by oil starvation. Check your oil level. If it's good, it could be your oil pump. Good luck.

Car died at the stoplight. Oil light came on.


Probably blowed it. Sorry to say. You can continue to crank it but it probably already seized a bearing. Run a pressure check on the oil.
