Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited
Battery shorted out in engine area now nothing powers up no life in the car at all.. Battery is fully charge i hooked up jumper cables still no life. I've cleaned the terminals and used sand paper to clean grounding cable to bell housing. used an ohm tester to see if cables are getting good contact everything seems right, weird thing is... positive and negative cable tested to the body of the car shows it completes a current.. that normal? I've checked the fuse's in the fusebox under the hood and they look good tested those too im stumped help!!!

Hello, I have the same problem with my 2002 neon. I was told it was the solenoid pack. I purchased one on eBay (the garage want around $200) for $88. I also bought on eBay the input and output VSS(vehicle speed sensors) for $25 for both. Autozone has these sensors for $27 each. I am going to replace these parts in a day or so to see if it helps.I dont have a garage and its cold outside here in West Virginia. I have also been told to check the ground straps to make sure they are getting good connections. They are located at the starter. I will let you know how this turns out for me when I do the repairs. I have been reading many forums where others are having the same problems. If you have learned anything from your experience please let me know.

Haven.t fixed it yet, but there is a bad wire or loose connection in a group of wires located behind the fuse panel. In the group of wires one of them is apparently the problem. When I move the wires the blower motor and power windows work, but they eventually stop again. I haven't had time to find and fix the exact wire that's the problem yet, it's not an area that I can easily get to!

The power lock switch on driver side door panel needs to be checked.If the switch is faulty,then it will not let the power lock to function properly.
For fan only working at high,this indicates problem with blower motor resistor.The resistor controls the fan speeds.If the blower motor resistor gets faulty,then fan will only work at high speed.But you also mentioned that fan quit working.So in that case the fan switch and fan wirings needs to be checked.Either the fan switch is got faulty or the fan wiring has got shorted.You will have to use test light to confirm the short in wiring.
--------- Also for radio and power lock not working.This problem also indicates towards short in BCM( body control module). Fuse number 5 in fuse box is for power locks and radio.Check this fuse.If its blown,replace it.Its located under dash and marked IOD.IOD stands for ignition off draw.Its a 10 amp fuse. ------------- If this fuse is ok and not burnt ,still remove this fuse out and insert it.Pull the fuse out. Wait 5-10 minutes and reinstall it. This resets the system.Then check.-------- If still the same problem then,bcm is faulty.-----It has to be checked. ---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
