Customer Question

Own a 2008 pt cruiser. Occasionally the icons light would flash and the gauge needles would go to zero and back up, but outside of that the car ran okay. The problem only lasted a few seconds and would stop. Since it was intermittent I was reluctant to take it in. No it has started to lurch and hesitate while the icons flash and even stall out. But if you start it again, it is fine. Sometime you get an odor of gas when you start the car. Any ideas?

Welcome, I am Chris (aka-Moose)

The first thing I would like to do is remove the cluster, start the car and wiggle the cluster connector and wire harness to try and make this occur to see if its a concern at the cluster or possibly a ground. Is that something you could do?

Have you monitored the battery voltage, a charging system issue to high or low volts could cause this.

As mentioned in my first response, I would stay in contact with you. I've noticed you have not rated the post. So I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off.
