I have a 2002...

I have a 2002 PT Cruiser with 40,000 mi. and have replaced starter,batteryalternator, ign switch and the battery will runs down even overnight. Can you helt me,?

Mechanic's Assistant: When you turn the key, do you get a single loud click, or a series of rapid ones?

No. it is completely dead, I will charge the battery and still the next day it is dead.

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

No when it first started couple years ago I took it to a Chrysler dealer, they put on new alternator, did not help and recently have taken it to AAA certified shop.

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.

TOM WHITTAKERUSA
