06 PT Cruiser wont start or turn over

Asked by Jun 06, 2017 at 01:13 AM about the 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Okay, so I have an 06 PT Cruiser. It started giving problems a few months
ago, it wouldnt turn over or crank so we got the codes read and it came up
as the Transmission Control Module. We changed that and the Ignition
Switch. It still will not turn over or crank. already has a new battery, but we
changed the terminals anyway. still wont turn over or crank but the dash
lights and everything will come on so there is power but no starting. HELP.
because we have tried absolutely everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

could be the starter or starter relay if you have one , the code will tell you what circuit the problem is in not what to replace , if batt. is good and charged and connections are tight you can test solenoid wire to see if it gets power when you hit the key , Usually you have to nearly remove the starter for that so you might as well replace it .

we dont have a diagnostic reader we got oriley to come to our house with it. the code at first as i stated was the Transmission Control Module. solenoid does not get power when you hit the key we did not have to remove the starter for that. like i said we have tried everything. we were told that it is probably a connection problem but we dont know where.

Is security light on. It will be a red dot on dash. If not. Check main junction block that power is being supplied to it. Check all fuses and relays. Check asd relay. Check grounds. The TIPM are none to have problems. There is a fuse panel inside vehicle as well. Check everything there as well.

well we gutted the car already because we are trying to figure out everything. i mean we can hook the battery up to see it though. this one does not have the fuse panel inside. its only under the hood.

Ok please let me know what you find. I see a lot of cruisers with stupid problems. It's usually computer and asd relay that fails. Then the newer than 04. Tipm is added and that's another problem with what they already have.
