Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Cruise Control tuns on by itself

I have a 2002 PT Cruiser. My cruise control started turning on all by itself an I couldnt get it to shut off. It would shut off on its own. It would turn off and on every few seconds. I got the car home and parked it. I tried to start it again later and it wouldnt turn over. It just went "click" and the lights would turn on. My husband was under the hood looking and there was a humming noise even with the keys out! Have you ever heard such a thing? My local mechanic is at a loss.

If the switch is located on the steering wheel, the switch or related wiring could be shorted.

SOURCE: i had tried to use my cruise control on my 2002 pt

being that it is a 2002 I believe it will have electronic cruise and not vacuum power. so I would check your cruise control fuse and button. If all of those are OK, then its possible that the cruise control servo has gone out. That it the box that controls the throttle while engaged. You can find it by tracing the two cables coming from your throttle body. One leads through the firewall to your gas pedal, and the other will lead to you cruise control servo.

What causes cruise control to shut off after a short period of operation


I would start with the cruise control relay first ! it may be getting hot and shutting down. Then check the cruise control fuse. If all is ok! Then purchase a Haynes manual for your specific vehicle. It shows a lot of info, for your vehicle. You can get the manual at any auto parts store for about $ 20.00. God- Bless! Hope this helps.

Cruise control


this is happening because once you shut it off you are sending an electronic signal to transmission and it resets itself once car starts back up as if something inside the ecm has been reprogrammed and erased alll over again. the ecm is your brain which controls your car. get a diagnostic scan ran on it ok?
