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: The 2006 is the worst year for PT Cruiser engine complaints. Having an engine light on is annoying, but it's the complaints about the engine shutting-off while driving that really have us concerned.

2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 092012

PT Cruiser 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


Temperature shot up to High and red light came on after exiting freeway. Immediately turn off the engine for 5 minute. Restart the engine and turn the AC on. Fan comes on again and temperature all comes back normal. Fan Control Module (the whole set - fans, relays mounting) was replaced once within warranty at 28,000 miles 3 years ago. Now it seems the same problem except I don't have the warranty now. Dealer told me there is no relax or switch that I can replaced but will have to spend $400 to replace the whole fan system.
