09 PT cruiser won't start

Asked by Sep 23, 2016 at 05:27 PM about the 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Drove my car to work and it was fine, when I got off of work I unlocked it and
everything appeared normal, all lights and accessories worked, put the key
in and as soon as I turned it everything went off like the battery was dead
and it did not try to crank or turn over. Attempted jump start - it would start,
but as soon as jumper cables were disconnected, car died - no lights or
accessories. Replaced battery with brand new one and had alternator tested
- alternator is good. Put in new battery, all lights and accessories came on,
as soon as I put in the key and turned it, everything shut off again as if the
battery was entirely drained. I have checked all connections/cables to/from
battery to everywhere else and they all look good, clean, and tight. I am
baffled.
