Question about 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Drove into garage, running fine. Next day no start. Cranked fine. I got back home today it cranked about 10 revolutions and no crank. Getting power to the ignition switch, I can jump the starter relay and cranks fine. ASD relay does not trip, fuel pump relay does not trip. I don't have a wiring diagram, and minimal Chrysler experience. No carb and no points, I'm semi lost.
Sounds like the crank position sensor. check continuity and 5volts reference at sensor. you can have it checked by someone with a Good scanner(SNAP-ON). If it happens to start up,drive the car till it wont start up again; unplug the crank position sensor and count to 5 then plug it back in. If it starts then its the crank sensor.(just a quick way to test it and get you home or to a shop)

SOURCE: I went out to warm
First unhook the battery for about a half hour to reset the computer.
does that have anti-theft on it.
a remote starter ?
second either swap the relays for the starter and fuel pump or replace them outright.
when you bypass the relay to get it to crank... will it start ?
if that radio is of the anti-theft variety make sure you know the code and how to enter it
