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.

2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 012008

PT Cruiser

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles


I see another person has had this problem. Very annoying, the battery kept dying and I couldn't figure out why. There was no way to turn the parking lights off except to depress the turn signal after turning off the car.

I take very good care of my car, this shouldn't happen. Your parking lights should never stay on all the time, unless you manually turn them on. What's up with that? Now, Chrysler says I have to pay $150.00 for labor plus parts. Parking lights are not a wear and tear item, only the lights should be, not the switches or the wiring on a 2002 PT Cruiser with only 67,000 miles... geez.
