Replacing 2004 PT Cruiser Starter

I have a 2004 Platinum Series PT Cruiser (Turbo) with a bad starter. My question is; Can my intermediate/advanced shade-tree mechanic husband switch out the starter himself? Any special tools required? I've looked all over the internet and can't even find a diagram of the engine.

I'm trying to avoid my local Chrysler service center at all costs. (Too many reasons to list)

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

He can do it. Tell him to just be patient (everything is a tight fit in a PT) and remember to disconnect the battery first. No special tools are required. He may have to move a bracket or two for access. It lives on the left side (front) of the motor and easiest to get to from underneath.

I have an 04 PT cruiser turbo. Starter was bad so I replaced it and new starter repeats problem. After many check, engine will not crank. Batery tested and charged as good. Starter does not engage unless...


I saw something on another site. and it was doing the same thing you have said and it turned out to be the ignition module the electrics on the ignition. remove it off the ignition and open it up and check that the solid parts. some suffer from dry joints. 81036c61-543f-4d51-8488-531140cad9d9.jpg

I have a 2004 PT Cruiser Platinum series with a 2.4 liter engine, wjhat is a suitable replacement battery for this car; Sears die hard or interstate ?


Sears Diehard or Interstate would make a battery for your vehicle. Look for something with over 600 cca and you should be ok for the winter.

Diehard makes a Platinum battery, but it costs over $189.99.
Diehard Gold batteries are like $109 or so.

Walmart sells batteries that are comparable to the Diehard Gold for under $100.

However, I just bought a Platinum battery for my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limo and it seems to work alright so far and has a 4 year free replacement warranty.

In general, the more you pay, the better the battery up to the 'best' which is the Diehard Platinum.
Walmart and Interstate do not offer a battery that has as long of a warranty or as good of a design as the Platinum from Diehard which uses proprietary technology to get a better warranty than normal.

The Platinum name in the PT Cruiser has nothing to do with the Platinum name for Diehard, by the way.

Good luck on finding a suitable replacement battery for your 2004 PT Cruiser Platinum.
