my pt cruiser cut off, i put in a new battery, it still does not starts,jit ust cranks, would this have anything to do with using the sentry key for the first time
possibly. the first time it shut down, it refused to crank, so you replaced the battery ? after you replaced the battery, all it does is crank over with no sign of trying to start ?how old and how many miles on this vehicle ?
Its is a 2002 PT Cruiser and haas 122039 miles
ok, if the engine hasn't had a timing belt replacement and the answer to the other questions is affirmative, this would be a good thing to check. just to be safe, first have someone listen for the fuel pump at the gas filler with the gas cap removed. turn the ignition to the on position and you should be able to hear the fuel pump, even if only for a few moments. if you hear the pump, move on to checking for a broken timing belt. let me go back a bit. after you confirm the pump runs, check for fire to the spark plugs.
i had the same problem with my 2003 started when it felt like it...it was my ignition
I just got a new battery for my 01 today and it ran great for a few hours then just shut down while driving, now won't start but still getting power, spark, etc.
