According to Heifetz17 on PT Cruiser links.com : " Your problem is not the battery. If the battery were weak, you wouldn't be able to start it a few hours later. Batteries don't just recharge themselves as they sit.

This sounds more likely to be a fuel pump problem. Fuel pumps often start acting up when warm (after driving), and working again after the car has cooled for a few hours." ------------------------

Assuming your next question is "Where is my fuel pump located?" you can watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kD05CaZjQiM I hope these help!

You haven't given details such as whether it is cranking, there is a spark at the plugs, pressure in the fuel rail and so forth?

The problem might be related to the immobiliser. Older Renaults sometimes used to play similar tricks.

Does the engine crank, but not start or will it not crank?

If not cranking, test battery, clean post and check wires for corrosion and good contact. Also check the ground wire between the engine block and the car body for good contact. If all good there, may be a problem in the ignition switch.

If the engine cranks but will not start, check the pressure on the fuel rail. If good pressure, check the ignition module.

SOURCE: 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?

2005 PT Cruiser no crank


sounds like the crank position sensor. check continuity and 5volts reference at sensor. you can have it checked by someone with a Good scanner(SNAP-ON). If it happens to start up,drive the car till it wont start up again; unplug the crank position sensor and count to 5 then plug it back in. If it starts then its the crank sensor.(just a quick way to test it and get you home or to a shop)

I have to pump the gas alot to start my 2005 pt cruiser


You may not believe what I am going to say, but pumping the gas pedal does nothing to make the engine start.
The throttle position sensor does not start sending a signal to the computer until after the engine starts.
However, cranking the engine for an extended period of time could have an effect. If the fuel pressure is low, cranking the engine would build it back up to normal.
I would suggest you have the fuel pressure checked before and after the first attempt of the day. The car would need to sit overnight for the first test.

Is the check engine light on? Try spraying carb. cleaner in FI. and start. If it starts and runs until fluid is dry, might be fuel pump. If engine light on and has been for awhile, could be cat. converter stopped up and engine can't breathe so it shuts it off.
