Didn't you get the details from 'just answer'?2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser. My concerns were listed in my questions as well

This issue has been reported many times on Internet with no real clear solution... Surely you have seen or heard about it in your extensive experience. Let's not waste time.. If it is wiring tell me between which terminals and junctions to jump or cut and replace with heavier gauge wiring... I am capable.Headlamps, Parking Lamps, rear illumination along with power locks rendered inoperable by RKE (Keyless Entry)... Lock button inside vehicle renders clicking noises from center of dash. Key fob renders horn chirp and alarm set (no light flash on alarm set) but just clicking from center of dash.Checked ALL FUSES and relays... All are good... Wiring surrounding fuse block and grounds are good. Bulbs are good...Reset RKE (Keyless Entry) and BCM (Body Control Module) reset by Disconnecting battery for 30 minutes and touched negative and positive battery terminals before reconnecting them... No result, no difference.I realize cars age and break down... Whoever designed the circuits on this model was a complete idiot... No headlights because of a perceived module failure? Come on.. Essential systems should be separate.It's just like the seat sensors airbag circuit renders the power windows and ventilation system inoperable... How does one survive that?

Hi Im David ill pull a print for you, but behind the interior fuse panel there's a few wires that have been problem children and I remember one time the problem was locks and headlights and it was a wire chaffed behind that fuse panel.
