I have had this problem on the wife’s 2006 PT GT, all the gauges went nuts, lights, bells, and possibly whistled once. What I found with her pt was corrosion on the negative battery terminal, large or small amount will make the computer go haywire. Clean area with baking soda and water, use a battery post cleaner on post and terminals, and finish with a battery terminal protector spray. Hope this helps you out.
