2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser ProblemsMultifunction 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.
A click heard when turning the steering wheel may be solved by aligning the steering column or installing revised parts in the column (requires removal of the steering column).
"False" trouble codes may cause erroneous illumination of the Check Engine Light. Updating the PCM software can often correct this concern.
2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser QuestionsWhere can I find the correct fuse? (1 answer)
Hi!! MY 2003 PT cruiser blew a fuse (plug inside) and it's not a fuse under the dash. Where is it located under the hood?
Text message me with the answer, please. Thank you. Also, now the radio and clock doesn't work. I had to get a jumpstart again today. This is my 7th or 9th jumpstart but I've gotten a new battery on the 10/14/15.
2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser RecallsChrysler Recalls 2001-2005 PT Cruisers Due to Power Steering Fluid Leak
The power steering pressure hose may contact the automatic transaxle, potentially damaging the hose. An underhood fire could result from the leaking fluid. Dealers will inspect the power steering pressure hose and retain or replace it as necessary.
The clutch may fail to disengage due to a welded pin disengaging from the dual mass flywheel. It most cases, you will hear a significant rattling type noise if the pin disengages. Dealers will replace the flywheel and clutch assemblies with updated parts.
