pcm problems

Asked by Dec 28, 2009 at 09:21 PM about the Chrysler PT Cruiser

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Anyone have problems with the check engine light, the brake light and the antitheft light all coming on at once while driving. Followed by car running rough and burning smell and not turning over after turning the car off? Seems like they are all electrical and maybe pcm problems.

Did you install any aftermarket electronics? If not take it back to your dealer or any chrysler dealer and get it checked out. Any time there is a burning smell that means electronics componants are shorting out. Which is a safety and fire hazard.
