    Mine did the same thing. The light switch/wiper switch mechanism is out of sync. I took it apart and studied it at length. Could not adjust. I called the dealership, 250 on back order nation wide. I finally pulled a 15 amp fuse from the fuse box, it disables the fog lights.

1.At first take out the foglight's fuse before you battery is dead. (Fog lights stays "ON" even you leave the car).

2.You must replace the Multifunction control switch =(

Here is the photo of problem:

Fog lights are connected to pin 13,14.
Fog light switch is "B". Because the current is many Amps, contact surfaces are heating up.
After that the contact opening "C" is melting (made of plastic) so the fog light stays "ON".

Fog lamp indicator comes off and on intermittently. Had a new battery recently


There are two types of PT Cruisers, those that the multi-function switch (the one on your steering wheel that controls turn signals/foglights) HAS failed and those that it WILL fail. Yours probably has failed and your fog lights come on whenever they feel like it, even if the car is parked with no key in the ignition, thus your need for a new battery. You can find the replacement part on Amazon (Amazon com Shee Mar SM147 Turn Signal Fog Lamp Wiper Dimmer Multifunction... ) or have your mechanic replace it.

Fog lights on all the time


Sounds like your multifunction switch (i.e. the stalk that has the fog light switch) has burned out. This is a fairly common problem and the multifunction switch needs to be replaced.

The part (as I recall) costs < $100 (about 80, I think) and takes less than half an hour to replace.

If you like to fix your fog lights, you must replace malfunction switch. It is a typically PT-Cruiser problem.

2005 pt cruiser wont start


First check to make sure all the harness plugs on the PCM are pushed in and tight. It happened to me.
Then check your grounds.
And you need to get that multi switch replaced to fix that fog light problem.  Just remember to take the relay off of the old one and replace it on the new one.

Fog lights staying on


1st most newer car cars have a timer delay that helps light the area you are in for a couple of seconds. You may have had the knob turned all the way up on the turn signal switch. The same thing will happened if this switch is turned all the way up, the interrior light will stay on. Turn the lights on with the switch and see if the fog lights come on, do this without the car running.Trun the lights off,see if the fog lights stay on then go out after a while.if so you have a delay on the fog lights or relay. You may need to replace the relay only. Part $ 15 trace fog light wiring to relay usually under hood away from water sources.......runjoe
