RE #1 trunk is shut properly but will chime while driving its open and stays on/#2 had new battery replaced today and realized on my way home that my tail lights were not coming on my brake lights are fine but was hoping it was was just something minor possibley while changing battery something was disconnected or fuse I have no idea. Any suggestions ????
It starts when it's cold, but after I run it for a while and shut it off, doesn't always start it just cranks over, but if I wait a few minutes it will start. I already replace the crankshaft sensor.
It was fine last night but won't turn today. I tried my spare key
Have PT Cruiser 2003 Limited Edition. Car has slow transmission fluid leak and would stop shifting when it got dry. Been filling it as it needs it until I can get it fixed. Last time I put in fluid, though, transmission refused to shift. Pcm gives out a 0700 error code which I understand indicates a transmission malfunction without being specific. I was advised to replace the pcm and I did. Car shifted the first day and then it stopped. I exchanged the pcm for another, but the same thing happened. I was then told it could be the body control module except the pt cruiser doesn't have a stand alone bcm. Any ideas?
What could be causing this to happen...
There is 1 bolt at top of exhaust manifold where the catalytic converter connects that is just about impossible to get to, to hold and break loose, trying to remove the Turbo and replace with new Turbo, I have sprayed with PB Blaster as well
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?

Thank you
