Probably two reasons for this. 1) the contacts at the base of the brush are not clean which will prevent proper charging , the low battery beep is telling you to recharge.2) the battery needs replacing.
My flexcare began randomly turning itself on about a week ago. When charging it would vibrate a pattern of one short, then 2 short bursts. After talking with tech support and finding my flexcare was out of warranty, fixed it myself.
I opened the the base with a flat head, disconnected the battery (my model did not have a soldered in one) and wiped out the condensation in the housing and on the brush. I put it back together and it works as before. YMMV

The problem is either a corroded circuit board or worn-out Ni-Cad batteries. Both repair solutions require soldering, but full repair is possible.
Sears Diehard or Interstate would make a battery for your vehicle. Look for something with over 600 cca and you should be ok for the winter.
Diehard makes a Platinum battery, but it costs over $189.99.
Diehard Gold batteries are like $109 or so.
Walmart sells batteries that are comparable to the Diehard Gold for under $100.
However, I just bought a Platinum battery for my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limo and it seems to work alright so far and has a 4 year free replacement warranty.
In general, the more you pay, the better the battery up to the 'best' which is the Diehard Platinum.
Walmart and Interstate do not offer a battery that has as long of a warranty or as good of a design as the Platinum from Diehard which uses proprietary technology to get a better warranty than normal.
The Platinum name in the PT Cruiser has nothing to do with the Platinum name for Diehard, by the way.
Good luck on finding a suitable replacement battery for your 2004 PT Cruiser Platinum.
