Question about 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Open Question

PT CRUISER TURN KEY SECURITY PROBLEM CAN'T START CAR

My PT Cruiser is the stripped version with manual locks - so the car has no REMOTE but the dealer added a system to start the car you have to wait for one chrip and then 5 seconds later a second set of chirps go off so you can start the car.

The car only chrips once - no second set of chirps - so the car can't / won't start. ( car has been out in very cold weather & not used for a month)

Anyway of getting this car started, can this tri lock security be removed that I see under the steerling wheel?

SOURCE: Change the thermostat on 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Hi, i have put together a step by step guide that will help you with this replacement job. Make sure the vehicle is in a cool state before starting this job.


* Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
* Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
* Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
* Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
* Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
* The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
* When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
* Install the gasket.
* Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
* When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
* You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
* Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
* If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.

NOTE
When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step.

SOURCE: replacing a starter in a PT. Cruiser 2001

Remove battery and battery support you'll be able to undo starter bolt's trough there and slip starter out.

Testimonial: "This didn't help, because you had to remove the engine structural collar under the starter to get at the starter bolt. It was more complicated."

How can i turn my security light off so i can start my car?


Jeremy: According to eHow.com: "
  • 1 Press the "Unlock" key on your key fob to deactivate the alarm and unlock the car doors. If you've lost your key fob, unlocking the driver's side door with the key automatically deactivates the PT Cruiser's alarm.
  • 2 Look for the black alarm box underneath the dashboard, on the driver's side of the car. Locate the override button on the box -- either a black or red button, depending on the year of the PT Cruiser -- but don't press it yet.
  • 3 Put the key in the ignition and turn the key so that the battery is on, but the engine doesn't start. Quickly push and hold in the override button until you hear the alarm sound once, indicating the alarm is disabled.

    My 2002 pt cruiser wont starts and it act likes the battery is dead, but it isnt. what could be the problem?


    check battery connections1st check all fuses under dash and under hood in the black box. it will have main fuses in the one under the hood. next is the starter itself, with the key on and headlights on, when you turn key to start, do headlights go dim? pointing to bad starter if not. are you sure the transmission is in the park position? have you added a security to your car lately? try manually with a key to lock and unlock the doors. has your car been stored for a long time? the computer may have to be flased by the dealer, cost$85.00 and tow in. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

    MY PT Cruiser Functional transmitter and the one to be programmed both have no "PANIC" Button . How I programme the spare Fob


    If you don't have the Panic button then sorry, you can't program yourself, the dealer will have to program it to the RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) module in the vehicle, using their DRB scan tool.

    My PT Cruiser remote have no Panic Button How I programme another one


    According to the 2003 Owners Manual:

    You can program new keys to the system if you have two valid sentry keys by doing the following:
    1. Cut the additional Sentry Key Transponder blank to match the ignition switch lock cylinder key code.
    2. Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON for at least 3 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the first key.
    3. Insert the second valid key and turn the ignition switch ON within 15 seconds. After ten seconds a chime will sound and the Theft Alarm Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the second key.
    4. Insert a blank Sentry Key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds a single chime with sound. The Theft Alarm Light will stop flashing, turn on for 3 seconds; then turn off.

    The new Sentry Key has been programmed. Repeat this process to program up to a total of 8 keys."

    Without 2 valid keys, it is back to the dealer for them to reprogram.

    Also, could check the Chrysler PT Cruiser Sedan - Convertible Owners Manual (page 17)

    Hope helps.
