2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser ProblemsErratic Operation of Turn Signals and/or Hazard Lights
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.
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.
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.
2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser QuestionsMy car is smoking. When started it blows out a lot of white smoke. What could be wrong? The place I bought it from said that the turbo cars naturally smoke some. True or false? (1 answer)
My car smokes a lot especially when started. I just bought the car. Took it to AutoZone and had the diagnostic test done. A code came up that meant cylinder 2 was misfiring.
The gas gage also goes down to 0. Happens on a 20 mile trip about 1 or 2 times now. Please help.
