Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Open Question

Issue with radio in 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser - Whether off or on, the radio station indicator flashes briefly on the screen. The flashing is intermittent but continual from the time the car is started until I turn it off. This happened once before and the radio was replaced by a fully accredited professional mechanic a few months ago - so I know that was done correctly. Now it's doing the same thing - with the exception that the bass/treble adjustment 'sliders' always glowed as if on when this initially happened but aren't doing that this time (at least not yet). I did turn the radio on and it works fine but I'm uncomfortable playing it at this point just to err on the side of caution. Are the radios for this year - or this car - just inherently bad? Thanks in advance.

Indicators and hazard lights not working.

The blinkers run though the Hazard switch.
Have you done work recently on the radio or anything in the dash where it could have come unplugged?
I would check the switch and make sure it's all connected there first.
I have seen several people with this issue and most just recently installed a radio (or had one stolen) and the hazardbutton never got plugged back in... Locksmith Kenmore Ny 24 Hour Locksmith 716 848 0099 in Kenmore Ny

When Im driving all my indicator lights will flash on & off and I briefly looses power but never dies out

If they all flash, you have a bad ground. Main three are the battery to engine, battery to body and engine to body. There are others, but check and secure these first.

2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser My flashers & blinkers suddenly stopped working. I was told I needed a Lighting Control Module. I bought it but don't know how to install it or where it goes

Messing with the electronics is best left to pros, was it a surge that burnt out the first one? Automotive electronics are sensitive to 12 volt flashes!

Car radio manuals

If there is a "set" button you push that first then the station button.
If not, you push and hold the station button until the sound comes back on.
Check your owners manual for details.

Change your dashboard light switch/dimmer. It either has a bad connection, or is faulty altogether.

2006 PT Cruiser. All dash light indicators flash on and off and all gauge needles fluctuate simultaneously. Sometimes when this happens the car stalls. The dealership can't find the problem. Does

I just had the same problem happening with my 2006 PT Touring. Took it to the dealership. The issue was the electric parts of the ignition switch. They replaced it and all is well in the world again.

2004 PT cruiser, Can't change the radio station

just like any computer, unplugging it for 30 seconds or so may cause it to revert to initial settings.... if you take the battery terminal off you will reset everything and that is not necessary.... find the fuse for the radio and yank it.... see if it helps. IF NOT, probably a burned programming mode... hope you like that station....
