2009 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.
If the engine does not crank (or cranks but won't start), the wireless control module (WCM) may have locked up. This is due to static discharge through the ignition key. A revised model should be installed, but simply disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery for thirty seconds will temporarily reset the module so you can start the 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.

The gas gage also goes down to 0. Happens on a 20 mile trip about 1 or 2 times now. Please help.
The dials went back and forth. I pulled off the road. Turned it back on and it was fine. This morning it did the same thing without the dials moving. I stopped, restarted. Is there something wrong in the gas line?
