Car won't turn over and fuel pump not coming on

Replaced battery. Now PT cruiser wont turn over. I crossed the starter and engine turned over but won't run. red light in gage cluster on. I'm thinking its a factory anti-theft. I didn't get any key pads when I bought the car. Looking for a procedure to reset it w/out the key pad.

Hi I am Vortash the first thing you should check is the fluid level ( water ) in the radiator bottle .. and the oil to see if there is any water in it if you have a heat problem the head gasket can leak allowing water to mix with the oil .. this causes the oil to turn creamy white and reduces it's protection to the engine .
The best thing for you to do is have the vehicle checked over now as if the head cooks you could be looking at a couple of thousand dollars for repair in this country The UK it would cost about a thousand pounds to have a head skimmed and the gaskets replaced due to overheating and at todays currency exchange thats a lot of dollars ..Have a compression test done on the cylinders this will tell you if you have a gasket problem , The readings per cylinder should be between 130 to 150 per cylinder any lower and you have a problem .. regards Vortash

2006 pt cruiser. It ran, stood for around 2month and won't crank up. I hear the fuel pump, the starter will not move, I replaced the starter and still no crank or move on the starter.

Can you hear a relay clicking when you turn the key over to "Start"? if not then a faulty relay could be the reason the starter motor is not cranking over. Is the starter solenoid "clicking in" but the engine not turning over? if so , can you turn the engine over by hand?

When you turn the key on the ASD relay should turn on the fuel pump and power the injector, Do this lets cheat the system go to the ASD rely open the cover expose the inside have some one turn the key on does the ASD make contact? If not turn the key on collpase the ASD so it make contact do you hear the fuel pump come on? Now try this just as how you iopen the ASD do the same to the starter relay. Put the car in gear e brake on someone in the vehicle in case the car start and you are in front of it and it runs you over so at least they step on the brakes. Key on ASD exposed as your collapse the starter relay does the ASD relay turn on? Here why if you can control all the relay from under the hood you will need a ignition switch (the eletrical part)

My 2001 chrysler pt cruiser stalled out on me in the middle of the road, I was able to start it again but it died on me again a day later going to the shop. We decided my alternator was bad and I have a...

OK, the starter turns the engine over, and you can hear (?) the fuel pump. Check
* is there any spark? Use a timing light to check. If no spark, then the spark generation system (coil(s), igniter or other) is not working.

If there is spark, then pull the timing belt covers and check that you have not slipped a few teeth. If the PT has an interference engine (as I suspect), you may have bent some valves.

If the timing belt is OK, do a compression test.

When you turn on the ignition, does the Check Engine light flash then turn off? Could be a failing / failed ECU.
