Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

I have a 2001 PT Cruiser Limited Edition. I just had the alternator and battery replaced. But now, after having the mechanic look at this problem 5 times, still nothing. What happens is I will be driving along and my "Track on/off" light will flicker, then my odometer light flickers, then my battery light/alarm comes on. They cannot find what is causing this. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: 2001 PT Cruiser Limited Ed. Airbag light keeps

There may be some reasons of coming the airbag light on your PT Cruiser. Some connectors could be loose under seats or sensor of steering wheel could fail. However it is really rear. Your problem is probably caused by common problem in PT Cruisers - by broken wire on driver's seat.
Before you start doing anything disconnect a car battery. After 15 minutes remove a plastic panel from the seat (the one you can see when you open your door). Than you will see a wire in plastic cover. It connects an airbag in your seat and yellow connector under the seat. The wire breaks near to the second plastic T-shaped part (looking from the top of the seat backrest). It is located where is a pooling line and rising seat connector wire - somewhere in the center of lenght of the seat. Put the seat backrest to the vertical position, push up the black plastic cube of the line to remove it and have some room to repair the wire, cut a cloth tape. You should have ***** white and red wires. Inspect the wire about 1,5 inch from the center of the place where was the center of the T-shaped plastic keeper. The wire outside will be looking as new, but coper lines inside used to be broken. Strech slightly one by one of the 2 wires. When you find the break just cut the plastic cover in that place, remove 0,25 inch of the cover from each of cut end of wire and twist the ends or put extra 2 inch insert of the same wire. Wrap the coper wires in insulating tape neatly and tape all of the wires together with the T-shaped plastic keeper. Put on place the line udjusting a backrest of the seat, the keeper and plastic cover of the seat. Connect a battery and check it.
If you are not sure where is the place whre the wire could be broken, it is exactly 30 centimetres from the connector of the airbag. TomasS

SOURCE: electrical problem; while driving door ajar light comes on

it may be one of several things ...but sounds like the door switch is not completely engaging or it does and after either hitting a bump or just turning the corner it will break contact just enough to let the vehicle think its either open and then shut ...
in other words if you open the door and try using maby a piece of rubber hose and add it to the switch just a tiny piece or if there is an adjustment present to allow the switch to fully complete the circuit it should stop

as soon as you said the interior lights come on should have been a clue to the issue and being made of plastic they tend to wear bend and cause an issue as such .. on some vehicles there is a door panel that has a plastic stopper that meets the switch if yours is like that consider removing the retaining {plastic} insert screw and put a washer behind it to allow the 2 to meet at a shorter throw ..i hope you understand that .otherwise adjust the door switch if possible if that is not possible try a piece of cardboard temporiarily on all doors until you can decide if this remedies the issue and it should if so then consider replacing the switch or switches upon ensuring this is your issue

wits end. my specialty.
first off intermittent are hard hair pullers.
but I find them all with patience and tools, and setting traps.
guessing is a waste of cash and time. stop that.please.
the first question is:
can you save it with your right fast foot, #1 top importance !
15 min just idling
only moving or both.. try to say when it happens.
in gear , out of gear. etc.

first off there are only 4 basics engine stalling causes.
1: lost power (12v) to EFI , any voltmeter can catch this.
2: lost compression in engine (bad engine) only hot. (gauge it)
3: lost spark. easy to see with any strobe light or $2 spark tester or actual spare spark plug..
4: and last, Bad fueling. staving or too much and flooding.
this is easy to find. look at all spark tips.
dry , starving, wet flooding. (1920- to now, no change)

i can not go past this until my First questions above.

there is no need to guess ever.
all the tests are simple and the tools dirt cheap.
less than 5% of costs already !

I would want to know what the trouble codes are in the computer since the check engine light is on.
Those codes would help you or a mechanic know where to start checking.
If the alternator is not charging the battery, and you know for a fact the battery and alternator are ok, the problem could be a fuse or fuseable link wire, or the computer.

Battery light still on after replacing alternator in 2001 pt cruiser


Well the battery light means the battery is not being charged, but it could be a fuseable link or computer problem. Could even be a problem with the ignition switch.
You need to know if the alt is getting a signal and has batt voltage.

Errors P1684 given, how do I fix


The first code, p1684, just states the battery has been dis-connected in the last 50 start cycles.
Code p0401 is the EGR flow. You may need to replace the EGR valve.
Code p1193 is the intake air temperauture ( IAT) sensor. It may also need to be replaced.
Have your mechanic take a look at those, and please let me know how it goes.

I have a 2001 PT Cruiser. The battery light came


Is it a remanufactured alternator. It sounds like you either got a faulty alternator or a wire is hooked up incorectly to it. I would test the voltage on the new one to make sure it wasnt a lemon If you are sure the wires are hooked up correctly.
