PT Cruiser Limited

  • Automatic transmission
  • 115,000 miles


Ever since I bought the car, the cluster does not light up or work right. The stereo lights up sometimes. The trac off button does not work, and horn works sometimes. The door lock keyless remote does not work alot of the time. When you open the right side door the panic alarm goes off, and sometimes it goes off by itself. The fog light indicator stays on the dashboard, so does the trac off light and the ABS light. The service engine light stays on and will not go off either, even though I reset the computer. I just had work done according to the codes that were wrong, but the lights are still on. It is very frustrating, I am tired of spending money on this car. It is going to be traded in soon.

Headlights, taillights, door locks stopped working. Took to dealer and was told it would cost $5000 to replace wiring harness. Had dealer fix wires instead.
