On a 2006 pt cruiser 2.2 crd, manual transmission the gears are not engaging. what can the problem be?

If the gear lever has a normal travel and feel and there is an absence of noise or vibration it is more likely the cause is with the clutch than the transmission.

B1C2FB this is a code that was read as a problem on my pt cruiser

You can go to any chrysler dealer and they should give you the results, but generally this is a fault code for a bad air bag sensor and or controller.

What does this DIAGNOSTIC code P01A4 for pt cruiser mean please help

The engine management light comes on to inform you that the engine is not working correctly and it stores a fault code in the ECU with information on what is wrong. You can only access this information via a diagnostic device.
If the DME (engine) ECU keeps on seeing a fault on the engine operation it then goes into limp mode to protect the engine from damage (low power or stops) when you cycle the ignition it can reset the ECU and the process starts again (depending on what the fault is).

I remember something about some codes being in hex or base sixteen so did a hex to decimal conversion and got 420... Car is not strictly obd compliant as I think 03 onwards for diesel but I think the code is hex so should be p0420. If it is, cat below efficency, check what the lambda after cat is showing in live data.

I advise you to take your car to a Chrysler main dealership or specialist to have a real time diagnostic check done so a full diagnose can be given (this will have a set charge of approx 20 mins labour).

It could be a failed part on the engine system or just a software glitch that will require an ECU programme update.

Hope helped.

Take it in & have it scanned, may only be a faulty solenoid or even brake switch may cause code & symptoms. Sooner you get it in, the cheaper it will probably be to repair it

2005 pt cruiser check engine light came on put a diagnostic code tester on and it came up code po457 and po456 what would this mean?

P0457 is a loose gas cap, P0456 is a small evap system leak. The seal on your gas cap is probably worn. Replace the cap, clear the codes with either a diagnostic tester or by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and reconnecting it. It will take a few days for the code to come back if it isn't fixed, but that usually does the trick. I hope this helps.
