My 2005 pt cruiser...

My 2005 pt cruiser brake lights do not work. Bulbs are good, fuses are good, and I just changed the brake light switch.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

I have not checked the brake fluid. I did not notice any difference in the feel of the brakes. It would have been changed within the last three years.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your PT Cruiser yourself? What have you tried so far?

I took it to a lube place first, since they do minor repairs. They checked the fuse, bulbs, and perhaps the brake fluid (you'd think!) They mentioned the switch, which they did not have, so I got it and changed it myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all I know!

Hello I will help,

Does the high brake light work? Do you have a voltmeter or a testlight to check the circuit if I guide you?

Is there a way to pick this up later? My phone is nearly dead.

Sure, just post back when you can.

I would check the switch at the white/tan wire with the pedal pressed. Let me know what happens there and we can move on. I am not here 24/7 but most of the time, if I don't respond right away I will shortly./

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.
