Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

2002 PT cruiser trying to start with no keys!

I have a 2002 PT cruiser. We recently had some overheating problems with the engine and my husband put a new radiator in it and all seemed fine. Then today it started acting weird, only 3-4 days after getting a new radiator & battery.

It was making a high pitched squeeling noise when it reached 3000 rpm (several times today). When he pulled it in the garage this evening to look at it, with the car turned off and keys out of ignition the car acted like it was trying to start itself (2 different times). So now he has disconnected the battery. Do you have any ideas??? -Elsie

    The nut on the starter cable was loose allowing it to drop onto the solenoid causing the problem

I would check your wire harness. The starter is close to where you would be working on the radiator. I have not had the pleasure to put one in but i know its a tight squeez in there.

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.

Sounds like a short somewhere. Check the wiring around where he put the radiator in and make sure nothing is pinched, chafed, pierced or otherwise out of place.

Overheating engine


Check your oil dipstick for coolant, or a mucky substance. Your symptoms sound like a blown head gasket.
