P1685,,"skim invalid key"
I have no idea what they are talking about, but that is the code.

DTC P1685 is Invalid SKIM Key. The Sentry Key Immobilizer Module (SKIM) is part of the security system and kills the vehicle when a wrong key is used. There may be a problem with your key or the chip reader in the ignition switch. This is something the dealer will need to determine for sure. This code will also be set if someone actually tried to steal the vehicle.


My guesswould beto reset your PCM (unhook bat. and depress brake for 1 min), then try to start the car. If that doesn't work, I guess haul it into a dealership so they can run a diagnostic I have a 04 pt cruiser with airbag light and chime - quote.gif

My airbag light on the driver side goes off and on and chimes every few seconds on my 2007 Pt Cruiser. I'm afraid if I drive it with this happening my airbag will deploy on me.


The warning light means that a fault has occurred in the Airbag system (known as the "SRS" system), when this light is on the SRS system is disabled, so no the Airbag can't go off because the controller module has turned it off completely. Get it fixed ASAP because right now if you have an accident your SRS system will not work (Airbags will not deploy) to save you from injury.

I have a 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser at just over 80,000 miles. At random intervals, the warning chime will sound off for no apparent reason. There are no warning lights on the dashboard. There are no error...


Check to see if you have a water level indicator in the top of the radiator . A small plastic fitting with 1 wire from it. IF so it works when there is no water around it and will activate an alarm to warn you of lost water in the cooling system. The problem here is that the radiator cap will allow heated water out to the reservoir but on cooling down insufficient water is drawn back in to keep the top tank completely full. So there is a space that will allow water to miss the unit (cornering-stopping-hills up or down) momenterially and hence the unit chimes intermittently. Check if the top tank is completely full when cool.

2001 PT Cruiser Limited Ed. Airbag light keeps coming on and off and chimes every time it does. Is there any way to turn it off for now, its driving me bonkers?


There may be some reasons of coming the airbag light on your PT Cruiser. Some connectors could be loose under seats or sensor of steering wheel could fail. However it is really rear. Your problem is probably caused by common problem in PT Cruisers - by broken wire on driver's seat.
Before you start doing anything disconnect a car battery. After 15 minutes remove a plastic panel from the seat (the one you can see when you open your door). Than you will see a wire in plastic cover. It connects an airbag in your seat and yellow connector under the seat. The wire breaks near to the second plastic T-shaped part (looking from the top of the seat backrest). It is located where is a pooling line and rising seat connector wire - somewhere in the center of lenght of the seat. Put the seat backrest to the vertical position, push up the black plastic cube of the line to remove it and have some room to repair the wire, cut a cloth tape. You should have ***** white and red wires. Inspect the wire about 1,5 inch from the center of the place where was the center of the T-shaped plastic keeper. The wire outside will be looking as new, but coper lines inside used to be broken. Strech slightly one by one of the 2 wires. When you find the break just cut the plastic cover in that place, remove 0,25 inch of the cover from each of cut end of wire and twist the ends or put extra 2 inch insert of the same wire. Wrap the coper wires in insulating tape neatly and tape all of the wires together with the T-shaped plastic keeper. Put on place the line udjusting a backrest of the seat, the keeper and plastic cover of the seat. Connect a battery and check it.
If you are not sure where is the place whre the wire could be broken, it is exactly 30 centimetres from the connector of the airbag. TomasS

PT Cruiser passenger airbag light and bell go off without reason


HI I may have found y the airbag light goes off and on on pt cruisers. there is a pair of wires that connect to the seat air bag pod, the wires run down the seat and to a connector in th floor. after long in vestigation i found that even thou the wires have a conduit protecting them the wires run under the foam pad and over a steel bar, which caused 1 wire to be cut inside yet there was no tell tale sign from out side the sleeve, it was only when I disconected the battery and then the connector from the airbag and the floor connector removed it and run a meter on the two I found it. when i "pulled" the leads the outer sleeve stretched exposing the fault, the wire had a very clean break in it which was odd but the fault. note that only one wire powers the air bag, the other is a feed to the PCM, hence they are connected at the ends hence not easy to trace and with saftey in mind you must not put meters on the wires while connected to any part of the airbag
