2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser Problems

Multifunction Turn Signal Switch May Fail

A defective turn signal lever (multifunction switch) can cause erratic operation of the turn signals and other exterior lights. Depending on the fault, a dead battery could result. Our technicians recommend replacing the failed switch.

Engine & Ignition shutting down

Today, 2/9/2015, my engine and ignition just shut down - completely stop while I was driving. This is dangerous and very scary. It is a computer and other problem which is Chrysler's fault and no fault of mine -- even though Chrysler does not make these PT Cruisers any more, it should be a recall. Chrysler owes me to fix this car for free or give me another one that is almost free since I should not be needing a car.

Recall to reposition high pressure power steering hose

There was a recall to inspect and reposition the high pressure power steering hose. The hose could contact the transaxle differential cover and wear prematurely. Damaged hoses must be replaced.

Chrysler Recalls Certain 2001 PT Cruisers Due to Safety Seat Anchor Wire Issue

The right rear anchor wire for a child safety seat may be too large. As a result, a safety seat using an anchor cable may not latch correctly, which can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect and re-size the anchor wire.
