2002 PT cruiser trying to start with no key!

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

It was making a high pitchedsqueeling noise when it reached 3000 rpm (several times today). When hepulled it in the garage this evening to look at it, with the car turnedoff and keys out of ignition the car acted like it was trying to startitself (2 different times). So now he has disconnected the battery. Doyou have any ideas??? -Elsie

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.

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.

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.

Overheating engine


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