How do I reset my Pt cruisers computer?


Asked by Aug 09, 2016 at 07:44 PM about the 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 Pt Cruiser. Today while filling up with gas I forgot to close me gas
pump/ tank thing and the oil light came on. I checked my oil and closed the
tank up, but the light is still on.

The oil light is not associated with the fuel tank. IT means your oil sensor is detecting a low oil pressure. Either the switch is bad or your engine oil pressure is low due to a low oil level or faulty oil pump. Don't continue to drive it till you figure it out.


Tom I check the oil though, and there is plenty of oil

Time to have a garage see if you have oil pressure. You can drive it a short distance. Like I said, it could be a faulty switch giving a wrong signal, or a major issue. Does the engine make any new noises? Drivability problems? If not then you might be OK and just need a new switch.


No, it does not make any new noises. I literally just bought the car from a guy who owns a garage. He said that he looked everything over to make sure it was all in good condition and replaced anything that would/should need replacing for the next year.
