Question about 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

2005 PT Cruiser no crank

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: my 03 pt cruiser won't ignite or crank all lights

How is the oil pressure or low oil. Did the car over heat is so you may have to replace the oil pressure sensor.

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 ?

Robert

if that radio is of the anti-theft variety make sure you know the code and how to enter it

Just had plugs,wires and bottom gasket leak fixed. Car cranked next day,several hrs. later,wouldn't start.mechanic came and jumped it off,said alternator was getting too hot. Next day cranked, drove to...


That would make sense, because when he jumped your car if he left it hooked up for awhile. Then he charged your battery up, so it started the next day. Then you drove to his shop and back it ran the battery down. It's easy enough to test and change alternators you could take it to autozone or O'Reillys if there is one close they can test your alternator. If you have more questions about this or if you would like to try and change it yourself just reply to this post and I will walk you through it.

It sounds like just a coincidence. I dont know what a GRR noise is supposed to mean. It either Cranks, No Crank, or it Cranks but does not Run. Just tow it to a qualified shop and find out what the problem is.

Replace your Fuel Filter. Sounds exactly like you have Contaminated Gas and the Filter has caught the Most of it and has Gotton Clogged.

My 1997 Dodge Avenger's engine won't start


Try cam and/or crank sensor. If crank to cam timing isn't detected properly it'll crank all day but won't start. I had similar problem on my 2.5L V6 Avenger....drove home fine, no engine light, next morning it cranked, but wouldn't start. The crank sensor was faulty.

Mountaineer shuts off


it might be a blockage in your fuel lines, this will sometimes make your car go into failsafe, because it knows there is gas in the car but a limited amount reaches the carbarettor, this is also why it will sometimes stop while trying to "rapidly" accelarate ( from a red light )
