Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
One year ago my roomate put the wrong key in the ignition and it broke off. Had a mobile mechanic come out and he siad he replaced the ignition switch. A few weeks later the dashboard lights would flicker on while I was driving. It got progressively worse (sometimes I could feel the car loose power momentarily) then I had no problem with it for about six months. About two months ago, when I would turn the key, nothing would happen. After two or three tries it would start. This got worse over time until two weeks ago, when it didn't. The next morning I tried and it started. It worked about a dozen times but later that afternoon it didn't. All accessories work, dashboard lights come on, and the starter will turn over if I touch the soleniod with a screwdriver but the engine gives no hint of starting.
Not all replacement parts are good. I would guess that the new ignition switch is bad. Its also possible that the wiring harness is loose where its connected to the ignition switch. You could try jiggling the wires.
