Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Car sometimes starts, sometimes won't

I am perplexed. Sometimes my PT Cruiser will turn right over, and then, nothing, not even a click. Battery is good, no loose connections, I checked. Is there a starter relay for these that can go bad, or is it possibly the starter itself? I let it sit for awhile it will turn over, I shut it off, and then nothing at all. Kind of weird? I already got stuck once with it, but eventually it turned over? Any ideas?

Hello. It all sounds like the starter it self is bad.

Why does my 2002 PT Cruiser crank but not start?


Did u check for codes? On pt cruisers the odometer will read out a trouble code if the computer detects a problem with coil, spark etc. If ur checking to see if fuel pump comes on turn ignition on. You shpuld be able to hear fuel pump run for a few seconds and relays click on to start vehicle.

2004 pt cruiser won't start sometimes after you


Good chance fuel pump is getting hot and has to cool down before pumping back up to required pressure. I had to test fuel pressure when cool, then when hot to catch drop in pressure. Are you having any problems with how far you can drive before it quits, or starts to get sluggish?

Car wont start, NOT battery


sometimes a rubber mallet doesn't work on the stater, you actually have to hit it with something stronger, like a hammer while turning it over. If not check to see if you have a pro lock on your vehicle because if that becomes just a little loose it won't start.

This one has stumped everyone. Any suggestions folks?

Clean both battery connections by removing the connectors and cleaning the posts and connector interiors with a cleaning wire brush from your auto parts supplier. Wash your hands afterward to prevent mysterious holes in your clothes. Hope this helps!

2001 Pt- sometimes it starts sometimes not


It is hard to say exactly what the solution is but with the volume of symptoms you are listing off then it might be the ignition switch. But I would guess the oil sending unit may be faulty too
