2006 PT Cruiser Computer issue

Asked by Oct 27, 2016 at 12:26 PM about the 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey!
I have a quick question concerning my PT
Cruiser! It's at about 140,000 miles and
I've maintained regular maintanence. I
recently had a few parts replaced for the
transmission and it has been running great!
But the other night while I was driving the
RPM's suddenly dropped, I gave it a little
gas, nothing happened, then the engine
shut off. When I turn the key in the ignition,
the car doesn't try to turn the engine. I
took it to a trusted car shop and they said
it was an issue with the computer letting
the car start (the engine and battery all
looked great). They said the computer isn't
grounding for the engine to be allowed to
turn on. I was wondering if this is
something you all have seen or heard
before. I will need to get the computer
reprogrammed to fix the issue.
