CAR WILL NOT START?
There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--
1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.
2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.
3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.
4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.
5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it’s a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Pt cruiser 2009 wont stay charged. what is the problem?


Sounds like a bad alternator and or voltage regulator. It's easier just to replace both. You could take to a auto parts house. Many times they have a tester that can tell you exactly what the problem is.

Pt wont start or turn over


try to get a jump from a friend and see what happens, does the same, faulty starter, may need replacing, try to use small hammer and tap lightly on the starter couple time and have a friend start the car while you tap lightly on it. check ignition switch where you stick the key in. stick the key in the ignition and turn the key back and forth jiggle and wiggle it and see if your igniting will make contact. do it several time to test and see if its the ignition problems, this part is not cheap to replace.

Wont start


You need to replace your camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor at the same time. The parts around $60 bucks together. The camshaft senors sets on the side of the engine and the crankshaft sensor sets in the rear of the engine above the oil filter. Also, check the wire harnes to both sensors they have a problem with shorting out. Make sure you tune your car up with new spk plugs, spk plug wires, and coil. The PT Cruiser is a good car ,but the sensors **** and need to be replaced often. With this car you must stay up on your maintenance. I have one with 150,000 miles and it runs like new. You can turn the key on/off, on/off,on/off, and it will give you the problem codes. Do this quikly and write them down for the mechanic. To reset your computer take off the negative battery post for about 15min and reconnect, continue to post any problems and solutions with this car. The problem code will appear in the odometer box...........runjoe
