Try to take the radio out and look at the fuse in the rear of the radio. You have 2 fuse locations one at your left knee and the other under the hood near the battery. Look in the owners manual for this fuse type, because some fuses work the same thing. Another thing could be that you have an anti-theft radio and it will not work with out you entering a code. The code is on the radio it-self or you have to contact the dealer with the vin number.......runjoe

2002 pt cruiser had and tail lights will not work al other lights work

Could be a defective multifunction switch but 15A FUSES 2 and 8, 25A FUSE 1, 20A FUSE 15, 10A FUSE 20, and 10A FUSE 19 in the fuse block should be checked as well as 15A FUSES 12, 16/17, and 19 in the power distribution center. Also check the headlamp relay.

I have 2001 pt cruiser wont start or crank I got a new battery and starter still wont start it all

Marco, check under the hood in the fuse box for the starter relay. You may be able to swap it with one like it if it has the same numbers on it just to see if it cranks over.

Radio works but no sound

Don't laugh...but have you a) turned the volume right down. b) hit the 'mute' tab. c) tuned to a channel d) made sure antenna is up ? now it gets interesting e) checked the amp fuse inside the device f) checked the connectors from the the good bit.... wiggle the ignition key gently while engine running also gently pushing key in further.... it happened to my standard original 2001 lim ed still does, the wires cross inside . when engine on and radio going, it cuts out, sometimes just the display, sometimes whole thing blanks out.. comes back on when I tap key in. weird but true. sounds like amp fuse blown (right inside radio itself) Red

I have a 2002job pt cruiser. The dash illumination lights do not work. Neither do the climate control lights. The fuse is good. Any suggestions?

Check the voltage past the fuse and the wires comming from the relay, check the relay also. Do your headlight come on?
