Question about 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

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?

Sounds like you could have a fuel problem such as, a bad fuel pump or bad fuel pump relay. If this don't help, post back with more details please.
