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.

SOURCE: PT cruiser engine light came on what is wrong?

This light tells you that the engine or transmission needs attention. It's not going to blow up if you keep driving it for a little while, if it's still running (red lights, like oil pressure, mean to stop RIGHT NOW).

Just changing the oil is probably not going to make the light go out. The light was turned on by the engine's computer, and indicates that the computer got a bad reading from one (or more) sensors located throughout the engine and transmission. Most auto parts stores can hook up a code reader to your car and read the trouble code stored by your computer. The trouble code indicates what system is not working properly and that may tell you what to replace to fix it. Or it may require more in-depth testing to determine the exact problem.

Check engine light comes on periodically, it does'nt change the way it runs but I am always concerned that something may be wrong.


I just had this problem with my 2005 PT Cruiser. I took the car to my local repair shop (Chrysler has abandoned this area in Florida) and had it connected to a diagnostic computer. Guess what? Loose gas cap. Looking at the cap you can see the gasket is getting funny. Repair shop recommended buying a new gas cap.

2005 pt cruiser stopped running and either the engine or oil light came on, what could cause this?


On newer vehicles, if the engine loses oil pressure, it will shut off to prevent catastrophic damage caused by oil starvation. Check your oil level. If it's good, it could be your oil pump. Good luck.
