I would want to know what the trouble codes are in the computer since the check engine light is on.
Those codes would help you or a mechanic know where to start checking.

Pt cruiser charging problems


The Alternator is controlled by the voltage regulator, type is located inside the Powertrain control module, you guessed it the alternator is computer controlled. You will need the dealer to look into this before you waste anymore money on parts.

they have a failure rate

check 12 volts is getting from positive battery terminal to starter motor


replacing computer was a wasted brain frt idea
