At the base of the antenna, take a small crescent wrench or pliers and unscrew the antenna from the mounting bracket. Any Chrysler dealer should have a replacement antenna.

SOURCE: PT Cruiser Brake Light

Actually, that solution is not entirely true. I have a 2006 PT Cruiser base edition and my driver side brake light blew out. You need a T40 torx screwdriver and look up the bulb. Once you remove the single torx wrench, then slide the whole assembly down. This will release a tab at the top of the brake light assembly. Pull the assembly out (there are clips on the side) and then you can remove the brake light. It twists out of the light assembly. Good luck!

SOURCE: Change the thermostat on 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Hi, i have put together a step by step guide that will help you with this replacement job. Make sure the vehicle is in a cool state before starting this job.


* Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
* Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
* Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
* Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
* Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
* The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
* When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
* Install the gasket.
* Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
* When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
* You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
* Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
* If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.

NOTE
When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step.

Your alternator is starting to show its age. If you get it tested you will likely find that under load it is not putting out 14+Volts. It is probably closer to 12 and it's time to retire it or get it rebuilt. If the battery is the same age as the alternator get it tested as well with a "load test" to make sure it is still healthy. Hope this helps.

2002 pt cruiser--no brake lights--have tail lights--replaced brake light switch 3 times--brake lights work for about a week--ideas?


I would like to know if you have turn signals working in the rear. These are the same bulbs that brake lights use. If you don't have turn signals, then you need to replace the bulbs. If you do, then there is probably a wiring issue, or a circurt breaker problem. Hope this helps?

How do I re-connect the brake switch to my 2006 PT cruiser? the brake tail light will not turn off.


Under the brake pedal, the brake switch should be adjustable to how far the pedal is from the switch before it engages. It sounds like it is out too far to where the pedal is continuously touching the switch.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

PT Cruiser Brake Light


The bulb in the rear light has burned out and to replace it follow these instructions: 1) go to your owner's manual to find out the part number. You can find and purchase the replacement bulb at Target, any auto parts store and even at Walmart for under $4.00; 2) pop open the trunk door; 3) get a phillips screw driver and unscrew the 2 screws holding the rear brake light fixture to your car body; 4) as soon as you turn over the fixture you'll see where to pull out the burned out bulb and replace it with the new one(s). Good luck!
