Happy New Year :) I've got a PT Cruiser 2003 ...came home…

Customer Question
Hi,Happy New Year :)...

Hi,Happy New Year :) I've got a PT Cruiser 2003 ...came home last night and the fog lights wouldn't turn off after i pulled the ignition switch..the 8 fuse is already gone. I managed to unplug the battery and now after reconnecting i get this 'machine gun' noise when I turn the ignition - but the car wont start :(

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know what size fuse it needs?

I pulled all the other fuses and re inserted them... I know the fault is with the multi function stick... i have to wait for a new one - but i must have done something else to stop it from starting?

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

I removed all fuses and re inserted them - before I found out the the Nr8 is the problem - the thing is - it had no 8 fuse already....

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

I disconnected the battery and reconnected ... lights work ... CD player now is asking for a code (?) ... but more importantly - the car won't start .... just this fast clicking noise when i turn the key... Thank You :)
