Sounds like it is a temp sensor. should be 2 one for the fans and one for the gauge inside the car. it should be the one by the thermostat housing for the gauge.

Pt cruiser temperature light on

I see that there is a very common problem with the radiator becomming clogged / rusting out on the inside. Take a look at this discussion regarding the problem:

This may be your problem, too.

Good luck!

Have a 2006 PT Crusier that rough idle, and check engine light is on with code for #3 cylinder misfire. Replaced spark plugs and wires. Still have engine light on for #3 cylinder misfire. Seems to be fine...

I would start by having your codes cleared. If a fouled plug was the culprit, the pcm may not have reconized that it was fixed.

Try running a bottle of sea foam through it. You could have a sticking fuel injector.

As a last resort , have a compression test done. A crack in the clyinder head could also cause this issue.

I hope this gets you started :)
