Testimonial: "I know ther is a web site that tells you how to get the code yourself.....pushing a sequence of buttons in the car.....if you push the reset button..."

    In our '96 Dodge Caravan, you could play games with the ignition switch and the check engine light would flash sequences that displayed error codes, but you still needed a chart of codes-to-problems to make any use of it. After the 2000 year, that didn't work anymore. The only car that displays it's own codes (that I know of) is Cadillac and that one is tricky to make work--much easier to read the codes with a scanner.

2001 PT Cruiser Limited Edition -Stalls 15 mins after starting. No Codes. Swapped out Auto Shutdown Relay, and Crank Position Sensor and harness- No change. New Alternator, Battery, and Starter. What...

wits end. my specialty.
first off intermittent are hard hair pullers.
but I find them all with patience and tools, and setting traps.
guessing is a waste of cash and time. stop that.please.
the first question is:
can you save it with your right fast foot, #1 top importance !
15 min just idling
only moving or both.. try to say when it happens.
in gear , out of gear. etc.

first off there are only 4 basics engine stalling causes.
1: lost power (12v) to EFI , any voltmeter can catch this.
2: lost compression in engine (bad engine) only hot. (gauge it)
3: lost spark. easy to see with any strobe light or $2 spark tester or actual spare spark plug..
4: and last, Bad fueling. staving or too much and flooding.
this is easy to find. look at all spark tips.
dry , starving, wet flooding. (1920- to now, no change)

i can not go past this until my First questions above.

there is no need to guess ever.
all the tests are simple and the tools dirt cheap.
less than 5% of costs already !

Pt cruiser alarm fault

Try unhooking the battery for about 10 mins. That should clear any problems and give the alarm time to reset.

I have a 2002 Pt Cruiser, the heater sometimes works. Could this be a sign that the radiator needs to be flushed? Or thermostat needing replacing.

A couple of things. Simplist is to flush & refill the radiator. Collant level could be low. Mine was doing it mainly when stopped a lights or at idle speeds. If I reved the engine around 2,ooo RPM, it produced heat. Once I flushed and refilled the cooling system, problem went away. Good luck!

2001 PT Cruiser

Car overheats then engine dies going down hill coasting. When try to start, starter spins as if no gas or fire to the plugs. Can this be a sensor flipped by too much heat or lack of coolant ? If so, how do you reset the sensor ?
