You're ABS light wont come on unless theres a problem with the control module itself (computer that controlls ABS system), or your wheel speed sensor rings are throwing faulty readings to the sensors. first id get the code read by a mechanic in your area. depending on the code, it will narrow down the cause tremendously.
also, check your CV axle joints, if they are worn (loose), that could cause a code to go off as well. hope this helps!

Yes, i have a 2003 chrysler pt cruiser and i just put a new battery in it now my dash, headlights and dome lights flicker real bad?


The issue seems to be common among the 2001-2005 models of PT Cruiser. Changing the battery (from other answers on other years with similar issues) seems to short out things like the lights and the stereo. Some suggestions for fixing it, if you can't find where the electrical wiring for the lights attaches to the battery/computer, to make sure the wires aren't frayed, the plastic housing isn't worn away, and the grounding wire hasn't been severed...then a mechanic should be able to find them for you.

Grinding noise from front wheel 02 pt cruiser


john, this could be the bearings in the hub end of the short shaft, the brake rotor, or the brake pad. I own a 2001 and have had this problem. It was the rotor, I don't know why they treat brakes like they do but I changed both rotors, and changed the struts while I was there. Hope this helps.

2005 Chevy impala brake pedal pulsation with brand new rotors installed


Is your ABS working properly? Under heavy braking the ABS should engage and 'pulse' the brakes on/off. It is normal to feel the brake petal flutter or pulse under your foot.

Under light braking there should be no pulsing as the ABS does not engage and you have changed the rotors and pads.

2005 pt cruiser... it sputters and won't idle well


That is the first thing i would suggest you do. Replace all the spark plugs and the plug wires. Those 2 things are the most commen thing that cause misfires.
