Asked by Aug 05, 2017 at 09:59 PM about the Chrysler PT Cruiser

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Girlfriends mom ran oil out on pt cruiser. Filled oil
to correct level. Starter won't turn on at all.
Everything else has power. Radio, lights, wipers somewhere that the oil pressure sensor
could cause this. Replaced it with one from
chrysler. A few months ago I replaced the
camshaft sensor. Girlfriends brother was driving
car to college went to brake and turn as exiting the
off ramp and the car died. He waited a few minutes
it started back up

I think there is a problem and the computer won't allow the car to run , scan for codes , if you ran low on oil and the thing shut off then keeps your fingers crossed and don't put too much money into it


Adding oil AFTER the engine seizes up won't help.


Engine isn't seized. I can jump the solenoid on the starter it will roll. There's no power getting to the solenoid from the ignition lead. All fuses and grounds are good.
