Chrysler PT Cruiser: I have a 2002 pt cruiser. Went to drive

This answer was rated:

I have a 2002 pt cruiser. Went to drive it this morning and the windows will not move, the airbag light stays on, the rear window defroster will not go on and the ac/heater/fan does not work.
Tested every fuse and they are all good Help!
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If all fuses are ok then the most likely cause for this would be a bad ignition switch. It would take some simple electrical testing at the switch with a voltmeter or test light to know for sure. All of the components that you have not working are fed power in one way or another when the key is turned on through ignition switch circuits. If fuses in both boxes have been verified good then most likely you're going to need an ignition switch.

Hey Sprinkles


Thanks for the quick answer. It is an older car, so my immediate thought is:How much will this cost? It may not be worth a $1000 to fix a 12 year old car with 90K miles. Can you give me a guess at what this might cost?


Thanks and Best Regards,


Tim Stevens

If it's the ignition switch it isn't an expensive repair at all. Replacing the ignition switch would be under $200 at a shop.
