3002 Pt Cruiser GT - 53, 000 miles - first start of the day - went about 1/4 mile down hill, engine light came on. Had put gas in the day before thought maybe the gas cap was lose. Tightened gas cap, went...


It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

Possible weak battery has got the security system where it want respond or in some models want let the vehicle start until a new battery is installed and you use the keyless remote to active the securtiy mode a time or two possilbe then the vehicle will operate properly ..no question it is something electronic and this might be a possilbe solution check the battery to see if is still good,
