Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

I have a 2001 pt cruiser and i was putting in a new radio with my friend. We made alk the connections and the radio worked and was playing music. When we put all the wires back in the car and put all the covera back on over the radio, it stopped working. After about an hour of brainstorming and rechecking connections we tried the stock radio and that doesn't work either now. Do i need to have the car rewired or is there a simpler solution? Thanks all.

Probably don't have to rewire your car nO. it may have become
un-grounded or perhaps blew a fuse to the power side of the unit, most vehicles have fuses in kick panel as well as under the hood check that you have power to radio

    Call the dealer it may be that you need to program it so that it accepts the radio. this happened to me in my ford focus took the radio out and put in a aftermarket radio and the anti-theft system locked it out so i had the get a code put in to unlock it.

SOURCE: radio won't work

With your new radio harness hooked up do you have power on the orange or yellow wire all the time and power on the red with the key on?

SOURCE: PT Cruiser radio

If you have the right code for radio, you just be waiting (acc on) so long time that you can enter the code.

If you turn acc "off" the counter is starts at beginning in next time when you turn acc "on".

I had once same problem, so I took the radio from car, connected to 12V power supply over night. Next morning I enter code and radio was ok.

POWER LOCKS DOOR ALARM AND RADIO NO LONGER WORK IN MY 2001 PT CRUSIER. ALREADY CHECKED ALL THE FUSES. WHAT ELSE CAN IT BE?


make sure the battery is charging, make sure the alternator is putting out correct amp/volts, check cable connections of battery - at both ends, check connections of harness at back side of fuse boxes, check harness connection block at firewall (both sides of firewall)
, check harness connections leading up into underside of dash.
Ensure all ground connections are tight and not broken.

You will need multimeter and probe tool with light.

Poor gas mileage


I hope your friend put some gas stabilizer in the tank before he store the car.

I will put one bottle of ISO-HEET (red bottle) to the fuel tank + fill-up and let it run down to 1/3 tank.

Fuel up with a full tank Chevron gas for one more pass.

take 2 miles off if it's an automatic.
