Question about 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Car has approx. 80,000 miles; always passed smog test until it sat for a while and the battery went dead.
The system has to see a wide range of conditions before a smog test can be done. On most brands you have to drive at least 50 miles, at various speeds including stop and go, let it idle for 5 - 10 minutes, and run at freeway speed for at least 25 miles. It also has to reach normal operating temp of 195 degrees.

You may sneak it out with small fingers with out pulling out the starter.
If starter removal is required,Just unhook the battery cables,Remove the 2 bolts holding the starter on.

I recently traded my 2004 PT Cruiser in for a 2008 PT Cruiser. I had the exact prolem with my 2004. I also got a code that mentioned low voltage. After I replaced the battery, the check engine did not come back on.

SOURCE: "Check Engine light"
The issue is that the system randomly checks the loop of the fuel system to confirm that it has no leaks. A missing cap is the easy one to correct. It might also be a slpit in the rubber hose that connects the fuel fill tube (on the chassis) to the one on the tank, or any other hose in the the entire fuel delivery/ fume recovery sysrtem. The solenoid that allows the engine's vacuum to be used to conduct this test can also be sticking so that after the test cycle, it doesn't reclose. Good luck

need a new sensor, part costs around 200.00 and three hundred for labour costs, they have to take the car apart for it. Would recommend going to dealership for this reason only..
