Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser

2 Answers

No power to vehicle

I drove my vehicle perfectly fine this morning, parked it for roughly 3.5 hours. I then went to start the car and it would run for 1 to 2 seconds and then die. I attempted to determine the codes, but would only get "DONE" as the code. I attempted to start the vehicle again, and now there is absolutely no power. The radio and dashboard lights will turn on, but there is no power to the engine and will not turn over at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Before spending any money try removing the battery cables off the battery. and let it sit for two or three hours. I did this and the computer resets itself. I hope this works for you. No Promises.

Try to start with a boost if still nothing but dash lights check fuses and relays then will need to test ignition switch relay and starter for damage or failure

1999 CONCORDE: check the battery terminals probably they are not tight enough...something like that happened to me just the lights turned on and the car seemed to be dead, the battery is still ok since then. I just needed to buy new terminals.

Find your air mass flow sensor in the stiff collar of the air ducting immediately after the air filter. Have the engine running and disconnect the plug to the MAF. If this makes the car run evenly again you need to replace the broken MAF. The misfire on plug 4 I think is a downstream event of the MAF not sending the right info to the ECU and consequently not providing the right fuel / air mix to the engine

302 is misfire on cylinder 2. Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6715318-causes_gasoline_engine_misfires .
1684 is battery disconnected, which you caused when you disconnected it--you can ignore that. You probably have an intermittent misfire. Please follow my troubleshooting steps and let me know if you have questions.

It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

This is a devious problem which could lie anywhere. So many things not functioning would perhaps be a ground problem. Maybe take some extra care in cleaning the battery terminals, check if the ground wire is connected to the chassis. Do you have rodents in your area? Maybe they nibbled some wire somewhere?

Won t start


run the fault codes and look for faulty cam/ crank position sensor as this is indicated by the backfire/hard start and lower idle RPM. Check that battery terminals are clean and tight..

Changed spark plugs now runs rough and has thick white exhaust


Changing the plugs probably had nothing to do with it.
White smoke is usually a sign the engine is burning coolant or trans fluid. You might want to check those fluid levels.
If the coolant is low, you may have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.

I think you should check your battery and alternator.If they both check good you may have a battery draw,something draining the battery over night.Check your doors make sure they are closing like they should.

All the classic symptoms of a bad starter. A bad starter will work fine when cold but once it heats up, will require more power to work. Shame on the dealer for not recognizing this! A new battery with a full charge will work for a little while but if its the starter, I'm sure the problem will return Have your charging system checked out (most places will do this free of charge) Assuming the charging system checks out ok, I'd have the starter checked. I hope this solution provided you with the information you were looking for. Best of luck!

2003 Toyota Sequoia won't start.


Have you gotten this problem fixed yet? If not what is the condition of the battery cables( corrosion free)? Also how old is the battery? One dead cell could possibly cause this problem.
