the car starts and runs for 3 seconds and shuts off

Asked by Jul 16, 2013 at 04:51 PM about the 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

If you have a red light on in the dash, it is the theft control. Disconnect the battery and then reconnect. This has worked on my 2006 Cruiser twice now. I would imagine it has something to do with the ignition.
