How to remove battery from 2002 PT Cruiser

Car won't start, turns over once or twice then just clicks. I've tried jumping it, but just does the same thing. I tried to remove the battery to take it in and have it checked, but I can't figure out how to get it out. I've seen some articles that say the battery is on the passenger side and that you need to remove the tire to get it out, but the battery in my car is on the drivers side and it does not look like removing the tire will work. Help!!

The battery on my 2003 is under the air intake box.

Disconnect the air pipe to the intake box, then forcibly lift up the air box (it sits on 2 plastic locators which clip into a rubber grommet below) One you have the airbox out the battery is easily accessable.

SOURCE: my 2003 pt cruiser keeps losing tire

your rims are too badly rusted to get a good seal between the tire and rims.  You need to replace the defective rims.  This is a good time to buy some fancy rims or used ones from a junk yard.

My car wont start but has Power


DOES YOUR CAR CRANKS OR IS COMPLETELY DEAD ONLY LIGHTS? IF IT CRANKS AND DOESN'T ENGINE RUN THEN IT IS EITHER THE ALARM ( IMMOBILIZER )SYSTEM ACTIVATED,OR THE IGNITION KEY FAILURE. IF YOU HAVE A SPARE IGNITION KEY TRY AGAIN ( THE KEY TO BE THE ONE WITH CHIP INSIDE ).IF IT IS COMPLETELY DEAD THEN YOU NEED THE ASSISTANCE OF A QUALIFIED PERSON TO DIS ACTIVATE THE ALARM AND CHECK ALSO YOUR SMART KEY AS WELL .

2002 pt cruiser. Just replace the battery a week ago and the cables, the car runs fine with the battery disconnected so it cant be the alternator. when you put the key in and turn it on without starting...


jonboy;
I had the same problem. Check the wire in the terminal on the starter. That terminal is not crimped well enough around the wire.
It is pretty hard to get to, but removing the air cleaner and battery helps. When the PT won't start, have someone get ready to turn the ignition switch to start, reach down the left side of the battery (facing it) And give those 2 red wires (about the size of a lead pencil) hard yank just after your helper turns to start. You'll pull them out of a snap in wire holder, (which you can put back later when it is repaired). This should put the wire to the starter in a bind thus letting it start. You may see some sparks as the contact is made, or if loose enough, pull the wire out of the terminal. If this happens, you found the problem. Hope this solves your problem.

I went to start my 2005 PT Cruiser and got a loud clicking sound and it won't turn over. Is it the starter?


probably not sounds like either a dead or weak battery or bad connections on the battery posts. first take battery cables loose clean terminals and hook back up hopefully then it will start. or use jumper cables and see if it will jump start. if it jump starts then you no its not starter.if it doesnt jump stsrt then clean posts and cable ends and try again. hope this helps. best of luck

Don't try start the engine when the oil light turn on, it would harm your piston, camshaft and crankshaft

It is possible that you have a weak battery. You may want to try to jump the car with another car that is idling. If you get the car started then it is a weak battery. If not inspect the wiring especially for the ignition and the high tension wires.

2002 pt cruiser dies then fires right back up randomly going down the highway


most of the times when the car cut out it is cause by the crank angle sensor you wait for it to cool down and it will fire back up again, best way to check it is to take a bottle of water with you and try to locate (which is between the fire wall and the engine on the driver side on the engine block) where the crank angle sensor. when the car cuts out pour the water on the sensor to cool it down if the car then starts right away that is the problem.
