I have a 2003 PT Cruiser it occasionally (several times a day to once a week)experiences a total electrical shut down, I mean no electric, the car radio rests to 12:00. Sometimes if I shake the batter


First, loosen the cables twist them and tighten them back up. The positive goes to the starter. Again loosen the nut and re-tighten. Next the ground goes to the engine and the body. Do the same again. You also ahve an engine to body strap. You can do it to this also, but it's not the problem. But it wouldn't hurt.

06 pt cruiser just stoppe and cut off while driving down the road no idication of a problem and now will not start back what could this be


It sounds like it's an electrical problem that caused you to lose voltage to the spark plugs somehow. Check the battery cables on the battery first to make sure they R tight, then I'd need more info.

2002 Pt Cruiser engine shuts off suddenly


take it to an auto electrician and have all the ground wires checked out
what you describe is a loose /broken wire that moves after the bump and cuts off a circuit
moving what ever you move is moving something and making the circuit good again

2008 pt cruiser - check engine light came on, within minutes it started to "power down" and and died. Won't start. What could cause this? BTW have changed spark plugs, camshaft sensore, cranks


My PT did that when my timing belt broke. It cost $500.00 to replace it. If it is broken, be ready to have some motor work done. I had to have to values replaced at a cost of $900.00. If your timing belt is not broken then check the alternator and battery. I was riding down the road and my PT shut all the way down and would not start. I had to leave it beside the road. It was my alternator. It gave me no warning.

I was driving down the road and my 2002 PT Cruiser just shut down. The battery was bad, and I replaced it, but now it won't start. It cranks over, but won't start. It's getting fuel, but I don't know if...


sounds like you might have a type of electrical problem somewhere check all of youre connections and make sure they are connected good and arent broken or damaged that vehicle should have a reset switch for the fuel pump in the trunk or on the passenger side floorboard try that to it may help i hope it does.

Losing power


HEY EVERYONE.... SORRY FOR THE CAPS BUT I FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE WITH A BRAIN AND GOT THIS PROBLEM FIXED FOR FREE!!!!!!!! Now I have about 20 forums to go back to and save hundreds of PT Cruiser Owners the time money and aggrevation we have all experienced.
I have to give my friend John (now in my opinion the best auto mechanic in South Florida) the credit. Took him 10 minutes to give me the answer, took several Chrysler dealerships about 5 visits and weeks of diagnostics to finnaly agree with him!

The Solution: Replace the Catalytic Converter (FREE under 100,000 mile warranty - every car)!
Quote from dealer service receipt "check vehicle for stalling. found catalytic converter plugged up. Replaced catalytic converter."
part# 5085905AC CONVERTER-CATALYTIC
part# 4881012AB GASKET-EXHAUST MANIFOLD T

Please spread the word to all user groups - but give John credit! - Thanks, Rickster
