Yes it does, the Transponder type security key (Chip key as you call it) has been used in all Chrysler products since 1998.

How can i start my 2003 pt cruiser without the key


You can't, there is no bypass for vehicles with the keys with chips.
You'll have to call a mobile locksmith and ask them specifically about getting a key made for your vehicle. (It'll cost even more because you don't have a key to copy the shape from.)

Need to bypass my factory anti theft device on my 2001 PT Cruiser 5 speed


I believe you are referring to the immobilizer in your key for your car. Unfortunately there is not a way around this factory anti theft system. However most delearships have the ability program new keys for you.

If you had two valid keys that were already programed to the car's immobilizer you can simply buy another key with a programmable immobilizer chip, usually referred to as a sentry key. These keys are available at some hardware stores for cheaper then you would find at a dealership. So if you have the old keys and a new blank key you can follow the following procedure in most cars to program the new key:

1. Bring the replacement sentry key to a hardware store or dealership. Have it cut to match the original valid sentry keys.
  • 2. Place the first valid key into the PT Cruiser's ignition and turn to the ON position for a minimum of three seconds and a maximum of 15 seconds. Turn ignition switch off until it is in the LOCK position and remove the key.
  • 3. Within 15 seconds, insert the second valid key and turn the ignition to the ON position. Wait ten seconds or until a chime sounds and the vehicle security light begins to flash. Turn the ignition off until it is in the LOCK position and remove the key.
  • 4. Within 60 seconds, insert the new blank sentry key into the ignition switch and turn it to the ON position. Wait 10 seconds or until you hear a single chime and the vehicle security light stops flashing. Look for the indicator light on the dashboard. If it turns on for three seconds and then turns off, the key has been successfully programmed.

    I have a 2002 non turbo PT Cruiser with new zero miles engine installed. Engine will not run as computer is locked in Theft Mode. We never had an alarm system installed but I'm told the car is wired and...


    The ECU is not reading the chip in the key. Replacing the ECU will not solve the problem. It is an input issue(signal to ECU) not an output issue ( signal from ECU). Perform an OBDII scan of stored fault history. Probably an ignition switch problem.

    While driving the car died. It will turn over but seems like it does not fire


    Make sure you have the key with the computer relay chip near the car or it won't start at all.
    It's possible the transmiter chip in the key is bad.

    My PT Cruiser remote have no Panic Button How I programme another one


    According to the 2003 Owners Manual:

    You can program new keys to the system if you have two valid sentry keys by doing the following:
    1. Cut the additional Sentry Key Transponder blank to match the ignition switch lock cylinder key code.
    2. Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON for at least 3 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the first key.
    3. Insert the second valid key and turn the ignition switch ON within 15 seconds. After ten seconds a chime will sound and the Theft Alarm Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the second key.
    4. Insert a blank Sentry Key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds a single chime with sound. The Theft Alarm Light will stop flashing, turn on for 3 seconds; then turn off.

    The new Sentry Key has been programmed. Repeat this process to program up to a total of 8 keys."

    Without 2 valid keys, it is back to the dealer for them to reprogram.

    Also, could check the Chrysler PT Cruiser Sedan - Convertible Owners Manual (page 17)

    Hope helps.

    Yes, the tumbler is worn, possibly from a heavy key chain or abnormally frequent stop/starts. Ther amy also be a bad connection in the switch connections itself, that may not require a whole new ignition switch.
