Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

P codes set in the powertrain and transmission control modules, the P standing for powertrain. Fault codes in other modules could be C or U codes, but that type of code was not used on a 2004 PT Cruiser.

Can you give the exact wording of each fault code or upload a picture of the scan tool screen?

U can tomorrow. I'm a firefighter and work 24 hrs. Just started a shift. The code said passenger seat tensioner.
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

One code is most likely for the passenger seatbelt pretensioner squib circuit. Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Home and home the seat tensioner and it was good. The sensor in the B post behind the seat belt was open when I checked it. Should it be able to be ohmed
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

An ohm meter cannot be used for the testing of any airbag system components.

What would you suggest
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The first thing that needed to be done is establish what fault codes are setting.

I will put it all back together hook up the ode reader and take pictures of the codes

Has the airbag or any other module been replaced?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm not sure. My daughter wrecked her car so I found this one that a title loan shop had repo ed. The engine had been torn apart and transmission looked bad so I replaced those with hers. Had to use her computer and ignition key id. It drives fine no codes just air bag.
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Do you mean the powertrain control module was swapped from another vehicle and not programmed correctly for this VIN? That would be the reason you're setting the calibration mismatch code in the airbag module.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I thought the airbag module acted separately from power train and only sent a signal through the power train module to the warning light on the dash.
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The calibration mismatch code is setting because the PCM is from a different vehicle. The correct repair is going to be to replace the key, SKIM and PCM and program them correctly.

The pretensioner code would require an airbag system load tool to diagnose it but if you don't see an visible wiring or connection issues then a failed pretensioner is almost surely the cause.

I've been checking the wiring and someone has been working on it. Following the different colors has a pattern. Looking at the plug that goes into the module that has the tensioners and seat plugs along with the side impact sensors all of the components have their wires paired with the wires next to each other except one pair. Blue with a green stripe and Bright green with a yellow stripe. It kinda looks like someone has been poking at the plug and maybe put the wire in the wrong spot. I'm going to reinstall the computer and key sensor that came on the car and check the codes. Can you get me the plug wiring diagram so I can confirm wire location.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I've tried both seatbelt tensioners from the wrecked car. Neither makes any difference. Since the drivers side on this car doesn't have a code could I switch them and see if the code moves to the drivers side.
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Is it the airbag module connector you're concerned with?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It is the plug that connects to the air bag module under the center console
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Are you able to upload a picture showing exactly what you're concerned with at the connector?

What do you think about switching the belt tensioners from drivers to passengers
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Those are not the colors for the passenger tensioner. I think they go to the drivers tensioner
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Are those the colors listed for the passenger side. Maybe it's the drivers side that's bad
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, those are the driver's seat. The passenger are pin 3 light blue/dark green and pin 4 light blue/yellow.

What should pin 19 be
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It looks like I have 2 blues with a dark green or is there a gray with dark green also
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Pin 19 is light blue/dark green but no other wiring is in question if no other codes are setting.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the passenger tensioner is light blue with green and pin 19 is light blue with gray.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Light blue with green also. Sorry
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The passenger pretensioner wires are pin 3 light blue/dark green and pin 4 light blue/yellow.

Pin 19 is light blue/dark green but no other wiring is in question if no other codes are setting.
