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.

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!

that is likely the check engine light. if you live near an autozone they will scan it for codes (free) and that should tell you why the light came on

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.
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.
