Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser

2002 PT Cruiser CRD theft alarm light on

Out of the blue, the theft alarm light stays on when I try to start the car - this means the immobiliser kicks in and nothing happens! I presume that my keys no longer disarm the system - though they both work on the doors and the instrument panel lights up??

When arming the alarm and immobiliser does it not beep or make some sort of sound and when it is armed is there no indication like a flashing red light that its armed?


Make sure all the doors, Windows and trunk are closed and that no lights stay on inside. If a light does stay on inside the anti-theft may think it's an open door or someone is still inside. Also, if you have a lot of stuff on a seat, the pressure sensor in the seat may tell the anti theft there's still someone inside the car. You should usually get a confirmation of some kind that the anti-theft is active, unless the confirmation was turned off in the vehicle's settings.

Can anyone tell me what the flashing blue light on the windshield that begins when I turn off the ignition? nothing in the owners manual that I can find.


It tells you and a professional thief that the alarm and immobiliser are activated. Sounds like an aftermarket alarm if it has a blue light.

If battery goes out what's happen


you may have dash lights but it will not crank just a lot of clicks
the radio will kick into anti-theft mode so it will not work
The CPU program in the ECM may become corrupted and the immobiliser will kick in so you will not be able to start the car

The ECU is not reading the chip in the key. Replacing the ECU will not solve the problem. It is an input issue(signal to ECU) not an output issue ( signal from ECU). Perform an OBDII scan of stored fault history. Probably an ignition switch problem.

My car wont start but has Power


DOES YOUR CAR CRANKS OR IS COMPLETELY DEAD ONLY LIGHTS? IF IT CRANKS AND DOESN'T ENGINE RUN THEN IT IS EITHER THE ALARM ( IMMOBILIZER )SYSTEM ACTIVATED,OR THE IGNITION KEY FAILURE. IF YOU HAVE A SPARE IGNITION KEY TRY AGAIN ( THE KEY TO BE THE ONE WITH CHIP INSIDE ).IF IT IS COMPLETELY DEAD THEN YOU NEED THE ASSISTANCE OF A QUALIFIED PERSON TO DIS ACTIVATE THE ALARM AND CHECK ALSO YOUR SMART KEY AS WELL .

2002 Pt Cruiser No Start! Alarm?


This car is 15 years old. Personally, I have never heard of a vehicle that would do that. Try to find another vehicle that is newer. Nobody wants to get another vehicle, but it would be better than putting up with this problem.

No dashboard power, except radio light, and theft detergent light


try cleaning the terminals, jump starting or use your key to unlock your driver door manually. Perhaps the factory alarm is armed and will prevent the vehicle from starting

Don't try start the engine when the oil light turn on, it would harm your piston, camshaft and crankshaft
It should be the oil pump has broken and need to replace, tow your car to the nearest service center

We change out battery in 2005 Xtype jag after we install battery and car was running as we was program the radio all the light on dash starting blinking and the car died


Sounds like an issue with the car's immobiliser. In order to prevent theft by disconnecting the alarm system when the power is cut the immobiliser is programmed to interrupt the car restart when power resumed. You will need to reset the alarm code.
