SOURCE: PT Cruiser 2005, engine light on.

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. Even if you reset the light, if the underlying problem is not addressed it will come back on.

Emission devices in vehicles sold in the US are covered for 8 years. This is federal law. Talk to the service manager at your local dealer. A misfire will cause emissions to go up so it should be covered.

The only way to determine what is wrong and what it will cost to fix is to scan for codes that triggered the light to go on. The oil change should not have anything to do with the light (just check the oil to make sure they filled it to the proper level.) If oil level is ok, you can drive it, but have it checked soon because it could cause other problems if ignored for too long. Go to a parts store, most offer free checks of check engine light. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the PT's diagnostic port, and 'read' codes stored on the cars computer. These codes 'trigger' the check engine light to go on. They can then tell you the code#'s, what they mean, and how to fix the problem. If at that point you have any questions, post them and the code #'s here.

SOURCE: 2005 pt cruiser. convertible top

  1. This is a common problem with the 2005 PT Cruisers, and the worst case scenario is you will have to take it to the dealership for a software upgrade.
  2. Many times, if you disconnect the battery for 30 minutes or so, and then reconnect the battery, the convertible top and windows will start working again. I would try this a couple of times if the fuses are found to be good.
  3. If it still fails to work, check with the dealership to see about getting your computer reprogrammed.
  4. If all else fails, you may have a bad window switch and convertible top switch, but is unlikely that both would have gone out at the same time.

My 2005 automatic PT Cruiser lights all PRND all at the same time, the check engine light comes on and the speedometer stops working, and it won't shift out of the first gear. The RPMs just get highe


Jesse A Shelby, my best guess is the
(transmission control module) you said check engine light is on that means codes are being stored , OBD needs to be scaned that's a start. (interesting name).

My 2005 PT Cruiser keeps blowing fuse 13, what is the problem


Fuse number 13 is a 20amp fuse that powers the ASD relay and the computer among other things.
Someone will have to pull the relay and check the circuits one by one to find the short. It could be any one of a dozen or more components.

I have a 2008 pt cruiser. The engine light is on


My PT cruiser is a couple of years older, but I had the same problem. Drove fine, but start-up was erratic for several weeks. By the time  AAA arrived, it usually was working fine. But when it suddenly  started "struggling for power on the freeway and further along on the same trip, lurching (on a city avenue) I drove straight to my mechanic. It WAS the same sensor . . . and car has been driving perfectly ever since he changed it.
