Fog lights staying on

We have a 2002 Pt Cruiser and the fog lights kept staying on unless we turned the blinker switch. Now the car won't even start. We have tried to jump start, but still won't even turn over.

Help!

1st most newer car cars have a timer delay that helps light the area you are in for a couple of seconds. You may have had the knob turned all the way up on the turn signal switch. The same thing will happened if this switch is turned all the way up, the interrior light will stay on. Turn the lights on with the switch and see if the fog lights come on, do this without the car running.Trun the lights off,see if the fog lights stay on then go out after a while.if so you have a delay on the fog lights or relay. You may need to replace the relay only. Part $ 15 trace fog light wiring to relay usually under hood away from water sources.......runjoe

Problem is almost certainly the Lucas multifunction switch (indicator stalk switch). For some reason Chrysler didn't fit a relay on the early PT cruisers and after the front fogs are used a few times the current running through the switch literally melts the contacts inside!!!
I have read hundreds of people accounts of this online and personaly experienced it myself with my pt 2.0 touring edition
Bad news New multifunction switches are expensive. in excess of 100 pounds
Good news if you are remotely tech savvy there is a detailed repair guide here.

Best of luck

I have a 2002 pt cruiser touring. I was driving and the oil light came on and then the car slowed down and died on me. It won't start and it sunds like it wonts to but it won't and the oil light...


Don't try start the engine when the oil light turn on, it would harm your piston, camshaft and crankshaft
It should be the oil pump has broken and need to replace, tow your car to the nearest service center

Fog lights on all the time


Sounds like your multifunction switch (i.e. the stalk that has the fog light switch) has burned out. This is a fairly common problem and the multifunction switch needs to be replaced.

The part (as I recall) costs < $100 (about 80, I think) and takes less than half an hour to replace.

If you like to fix your fog lights, you must replace malfunction switch. It is a typically PT-Cruiser problem.

2005 pt cruiser wont start


First check to make sure all the harness plugs on the PCM are pushed in and tight. It happened to me.
Then check your grounds.
And you need to get that multi switch replaced to fix that fog light problem.  Just remember to take the relay off of the old one and replace it on the new one.

2001PT Cruiser door locks


The fuse is No.3 "DR locks" (near steering wheel)
If you take the fuse out the doors will not open itselves.

The root cause of the problem will be a microswitch inside the drivers door?

======FOG LIGHTS ============

1.At first take out the foglight's fuse before you battery is dead. (Fog lights stays "ON" even you leave the car).

2.You must replace the Multifunction control switch =(

Here is the photo of problem:
http://www.ptcruiser.fi/ptgalleria/albums/userpics/10010/normal_sumuvalokytkin.jpg

Fog lights are connected to pin 13,14.
Fog light switch is "B". Because the current is many Amps, contact surfaces are heating up.
After that the contact opening "C" is melting (made of plastic) so the fog light stays "ON".
