Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: Chrysler has taken the boring small car frame of the Neon, grafted a 1930s-era roadster body on top and named it the PT Cruiser. While the new look may appeal to some, the vehicle has unfortunately also inherited many of the same problems as the Neon.

problem #1

Oct 202007

(reported on)

PT Cruiser

  • Manual transmission
  • 71,000 miles

My 2001 LE PT has this very annoying problem that keeps reoccuring. The LED light for the radio and the horn simultaneously goes out. Not only is it annoying and illegal. It is unsafe. It seems like everyone knows that my horn is not working and they proceeded to cut me off or stop in the middle of the street with no rear view mirrow to see that i am right behind them. I noticed that someone else on this site has the same exact year and problem for the car. This is plan ridiculous that no one seems to be able to tell us what the problem is or how to fix it.
