Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Open Question

The water temperature light (little red light) keeps coming on and going off and the little bell keeps ringing even though the temperature gauge is fine. The car is not overheating or running hot. I have been told it might be the water temperaturs sensor. Any thoughts? Where are the water temperature sensors located at on the PT Cruiser engine.

It sounds like the module is in limp mode. The speed sensor is most likely the cause, but it can be some other things as well. A scan will give a code stating the problem area.

The speed sensors are on the side of the trasmission that faces the front of the vehicle. There are 2 of them, and they are the same sensor. One is an input speed sensor located closest to the engine, the other is the output speed sensor.

Temperature gauge


Temperature gauges will not work properly unless there is water in the radiator. For the light to come and the length of time it takes to work I would be checking the coolant level at the radiator cap first then checking the operation of the temperature sender unit.

My 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan keeps over heating for no reason


Have you checked the electric fan/fans on the radiator? It may also pay to check the sender sensor which starts and stops the fan/fans.This may sound a bit silly but is the rad.cap correct pressure setting and is the pipe to the expansion tank clear?...Maybe of some help.

How do I get the warning bell to go off. When driving my 99 silverado the bell keeps ringing. When I come to a stop it goes off. Very irritating. The dealership can't even figure it out.


What you could do is first you see if you can see a button on the clock the alarm and press it twice and see what happens then you are free to go out of your home i guss??

The oil light keeps coming on with a bell


If your oil gauge if you have one reads good pressure, more then likely you have a bad sensor, if you just have an oil light, take it to a repair shop where they can do an oil pressure test. Have it check, low oil pressure can cause major engine damage.

My temp gauge is going to the red , I turn my heater on and it does go down somewhat . Motor doesn't really seam that hot but might be . Thanks


It sounds like the cooling fan is not working, with the motor off look in front of the motor and there is a fan or 2, check the wiring and plugs, some times they corrode and can be cleaned with alloy wheel cleaner then water then spray oil in them otherwise the fuses and the thermo switch need checking.

My 2003 olds alero reservoir leaks


Your cooling system needs to be pressure checked to see where the leak is. certain auto parts stores rent out a pressure checker. make sure you have the cooling system full before doing the pressure test. check to see if you have a radiator cap and fill the system that way instead of using the resevoir

Check gauges light comes on


Sounds like a CPU problem. your radiator may need a good flushing a s well. i would also check the heater core for any unusual problems like seal break or leakage.

Engine light comes on


Hi there!

P1299 Cylinder head over temperature protection active.

I would want to know why this is overheating. It could be a fuel issue, timing is too advanced (due to faulty sensors) or just a duff temperature sensor itself.

Needs investigation though as performance will be affected.

(If this assists in a solution, please rate as Fixya! Thanks.)
