Where shifter linkage bolts to the tranny has come loose-have one person move shifter in car while you watch the end of the cable that connects to the tranny-there should be a nut that holds it on- the car is probably in park so move the shifter to park and tighten it down- cheers Denny

SOURCE: 2002 PT Cruiser Shifter Wont Go Into Reverse - Manual 5 speed

I had the EXACT same problem on my 01 PT. Very easy and inexpensive fix. There is a bushing that is located under the air box under the hood. It is in the shifter linkage. It falls apart from the heat of the engine and age. Mine was completely gone! The dealership didn't sell the bushing itself, they wanted to sell the whole arm for $$! I found this place that sells polyurethane bushing that work great. They sell you two, one for under the hood and one under the console. I just replaced the one under the hood.
All you have to take off is the air box, press the bushing into the sleeve then press it onto the pin and you are done. This place sells them as race parts that gives you a tighter shift.

It's possible the tumblers have fallen in your ignition. I had a similar incident with a Focus I owned. Everything locked and I couldn't get the key to turn at all. They had to tow the car to the dealership and replace the tumblers.

The guy at a shop close by (figured close to make towing easier) started into this 'its a dealer only part and blah blah...at least an hour .... " He's going to send an estimate tomorrow. I'm in E. metro Atlanta

You could try the linkage cable from the shifter(under the hood). It could be alot of things. Is it auto or manual trans? And what do you mean by wont shift? Is the the shifter moving from P,R,N,D, ect... or the transmission is not shifting into a higher gear?

I just parked my 2001 PT Cruiser to go in gas station. When my 3 year old and I cam back and aatmpted to leave, the ignition was locked and the key wouldn't turn. I also am unable to get the steering...


Grasp the steering wheel and firmly attempt to turn it back and forth while simultaneously turning your ignition key back and forth.
To prevent this from happening again, straighten your wheels before you shut off the ignition.

My 2006 pt cruiser wont start, no lights or radio. nothing? when i turn key nothing happens inside or out


Check the battery terminals for corossion. Look for the chalky white powder which is a tell tale sign. Simply move the cable connectors back and forth a few times to loosen corossion and provide a better contact. Have you checked your fuses. I probably spelled corossion wrong, sorry.
