This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

Does it start with a boost??
how old is the battery??
did you have the battery tested by a repair shop or CAA???
Problem can be as simple as a weak or dead battery or connections.

2001 pt cruiser starts ,runs for 15 mins shuts off wont start for maybe an hour then does same thing


Ignition control module (ICM) or also maybe the crank position sensor. If one of them went bad, it would mean you lose spark (ignition).

Marco, check under the hood in the fuse box for the starter relay. You may be able to swap it with one like it if it has the same numbers on it just to see if it cranks over.
