Customer Question
I have a PT...

I have a PT cruiser ( 2002 none turbo ) with only 11,000 ***** ***** and the malfunction light just a couple of days ago came on and will not go off.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Motor sounds good and runs smooth. I checked on the gas cap and made sure it was secured.

Hi, welcome to JustAnswer!. This is Ed.

First, we need to find out what code is stored and I believe you can retrieve it (or them) by using a code-read feature built into the car. When finished, codes should be displayed in the odometer window of the instrument cluster.

Hop in the car and insert your ignition key to the ignition.

Roll the key from off to on three times, leaving the key ON after the last cycle.

Don't crank the engine -- just cycle ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON and stop.

Watch for code display, followed by "P-done" (or simply "done") in the instrument cluster.

Write all codes down verbatim and shoot 'em back to me and we'll sort it out.

If the code-read feature won't run for you, it will be necessary to make a date with a scan tool, which may be done at many major parts retailers like Autozone. Most stores will scan your car for free.

Check it out and we'll talk again in a bit.

Ed

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
