Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer


I have just paid a deposit for a Chrysler PT Auto Limited Edition 2001 car which I fell in love with.
On test driving the car I found I could not tune the radio. On closer inspection, I realised the aerial had not risen!
The garage have said it is probably a technical fault and they should be able to fix with a simple 'pack'! I shall be paying the balance depending on the results of this (which was the arrangement).
Could you tell me, does the car actually have an electric aerial and, if not, can one be fitted?
Thank you.

Hi Catherine

Yes, should be electric.

As you say, it is either a technical fault in the wiring, or motor, or the mast has a kink from getting bent.( Most usual !)

Before you make your full payment, let them know you want it functioning correctly, and check this is so on collection.

Good Luck ! Nice Car !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated ....Thank You.

I have a 2001 pt cruiser limited edition, during the winter my door locks started making a noise, not a grinding type noise, kind of like a sqeel. all the doors lock except for the drivers side.

You can get lock lubricate from an auto parts store. Work it into all locks. The driver side is not squeaking because you use that lock regularly so no corrosion.

Pt cruiser aerial

At the base of the antenna, take a small crescent wrench or pliers and unscrew the antenna from the mounting bracket. Any Chrysler dealer should have a replacement antenna.
