I suggest have dealer check computer codes, probably fuel system.
Once every so often you come across one of these where everything checks perfectly then a week later the thing dies on the freeway.
Another mechanic checks everything and it is again perfect.
A month later it dies again.
Mechanic checks it, the thing is perfect and drives for another month then leaves you stranded on the Turnpike.
Again everything checks perfectly.
This usually happens because there is a loose connection or bad electrical connector somewhere in the myriad of wires and connectors in modern cars. These are almost impossible to find. It costs more than the car is worth to replace all of it.
Either trade the car or leave it at the junk yard (I'm serious).

SOURCE: how will not blow on 2006 pt cruiser

1st check fuse. Then see if power is coming to horn. A simple power checker can be found at most auto parts store. It may also have a horn relay. Look up your wiring at cargrus. If you still have problems contact me back.

SOURCE: 2006 pt cruiser, cooling fan motor stays on after

check the fluid in the radiator, and replace the thermostat the way it is positioned it could stop the flow from the radiator and keep the fan from turning off, I have found on several of them that I have worked on that the thermostat was bad. hope this helps. Only other things that would cause this or most common is the antifreeze is bad or the water pump is defective or you have a bad radiator hose but have not seen this on any I have worked on.

It has a bad ignition switch. Exact same thing happened to mine. Fortunately it was not all that expensive to get fixed at the dealership. Less than 200 bucks.

2006 pt cruiser on drivers side rear turn signal


The turn signals flash depends on each and every bulb working correctly. When one bulb fails, you will notice a change in the flash frequency, as you describe.

Replace or repair the bulb that is not working, and you should be good to go.
