Question about 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

My 2003 PT cruiser dies at a stop sign and then it won't start

It acts like the battery is dead - once it gets jumped it will run but then might die again when coming to a stop? Do you know what is the issue?

You may need a new battery (alternator will keep it running once jumped but if you stop, the idle may not keep the car powered long enough). If you've never replaced the battery, its about time - they have a life of about 5 years.

I have a 2007 PT Cruiser and it just started acting yesterday. It starts but if I run to the store (a few mils away) and try and restart after about 10-15 minutes it doesn't want to start right away,


It looks like battery. Check the connections on the battery terminals and see if it is corroded. Clean it with water and an old toothbrush. If it is not loose and clean, then your battery is probably going to need replacing if it is 3 to 5 years old. Normally batteries start acting up at that age, and also when the weather starts to cool down. Bring it to a a tire shop, auto parts store or mechanic and have it checked. It should be free to get checked.

I would want to know what the trouble codes are in the computer since the check engine light is on.
Those codes would help you or a mechanic know where to start checking.
If the alternator is not charging the battery, and you know for a fact the battery and alternator are ok, the problem could be a fuse or fuseable link wire, or the computer.

Daughter called me ..car wont start. checked battery at Autozone...it is good. someone stopped to help them and bang on startere and it starts up. Bad starter. Starter replaced. Next day daughter...


it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

Could be the battery is dead or dieing. When batteries start to go they will cause the security to act up. Plus other things

CHECK YOUR BATTERY LEADS EITHER ON THE BATTERY OR THE EARTH WIRE TO ENGINE AND CHASSIS OR FEED WIRE TO STARTER MOTOR
unless you have a fuse or relay jumped out
but you must have been going fast for that.....

I would check ignition items or fuel delivery if it just died on you. It wont be the battery unless it was dead and the alternator stop working.
