2003 pt cruiser I have a new battery alternator is good but when I turn the key there is nothing happening whats wrong

Asked by Aug 20, 2013 at 04:56 PM about the 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Base

Question type: General

1 Answer

When a car won't crank to start the three first things to think of are battery, battery cable connections, starter solenoid, starter. OK, Battery is good, but let's eliminate the ignition switch. Does anything happen, the radio, lights, power windows, work with it in 'on' (not acc) position? Ok Let's go with those things work. Make sure the cables to and from your known good battery, the ground to chassis/frame MUST be good and solid. The positive clamp nice and tight. All well so far? Have the solenoid and starter tested.
