2007 PT Cruiser. The engine light is on. Diagnostic shows trouble code PO 992

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

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

I want to. Have tried nothing so far.

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

Not that I can think of

I do not have a multimeter. Yes, it is the only code that came up.

I do have hand tools. What are my next steps?
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

For now, I'm posting the diagnostic procedures for this code. Chances are high that the problem is an internal failure in the Solenoid Pack. To be sure, you would need to run these diagnostic procedures to eliminate the wiring and TCM.

Since you don't have access to the required tool, I highly recommend to take it to a reputable transmission repair facility at least for the diagnosis. Once they tell you what is wrong, you can decide whether it is something that you can repair yourself...

Here is the diagnostic procedures:

Keep me posted and let me know if you have any additional questions...

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.
