FOR ALL YOU CHRYSLER PT CRUISER LOVERS! PROBLEM SOLVED TODAY! DASHBOARD LIGHTS REPEATEDLY GO ON AND OFF, ENGINE STALLING WHILE DRIVING OR IDLING, I HAVE A 2006 AND HAVE BEEN PLAGUED WITH THIS ISSUE FOR A FEW YEARS NOW. DEALER MECHANICS ARE IDIOTS WHO GO FOR THE BIG TICKET ITEMS AND HOPE THAT SOLVES THE PROBLEM. THIS PROBLEM FOR ME, WAS CAUSED BY A FAULTY KEY IGNITION MODULE, IN THE STEERING WHEEL. INTERNAL PARTS ARE LOOSE AND FAIL TO KEEP AN ELECTRICAL CONNECTION. A $60-90 RETAIL PART. EASILY REPLACED BY ANYONE WHO CAN USE A TORX SCREWDRIVER. YOU WILL GET A NEW KEY TO START THE CAR WITH BUT IT DOES NOT INCLUDE A SKIP ANTI-THEFT RF MODULE, SO JUST KEEP THE OLD KEY ON THE CHAIN TO OPEN YOUR CAR DOORS WITH. NOW, HOW ABOUT CHRYSLER MAN UP AND FIX ALL THESE INCLUDING PROVIDING NEW RF KEYS SO I DON'T NEED TO KEEP 2 ON MY CHAIN. MY ORIGINAL COMPLAINT: NHTSA ID NUMBER: 10823650 TIPM ALREADY REPLACED 1X FOR SAME ISSUES OCCURRING AGAIN NOW, A FEW YEARS LATER AND FOR AT LEAST THE LAST 8 MONTHS FROM THIS POSTING, OCCURRING MORE AND MORE FREQUENTLY NOW AND LAST TIME OCCURRING WAS FEB 01, 2016. ALL DASH / ENGINE STATUS LIGHTS COME ON FOR NO REASON, THEN OFF SECONDS LATER, OCCURRING ANYTIME WHILE ENGINE IS RUNNING. ENGINE STALLS - SPUTTERING, POWER STEERING AND BREAKS FAIL TO WORK PROPERLY DURING THIS TIME, FUEL LEVEL GAUGE WILDLY FLUCTUATES AND SMELL OF GAS IS NOTICEABLE, ALL CAUSING A DANGEROUS SITUATION WHEN AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. HEAD LIGHTS AND INTERIOR LIGHTS RANDOMLY GO BRIGHT OR DIM FOR A FRACTION OF A SECOND. DEALERSHIP UNABLE TO DIAGNOSE AS IT DOES NOT STAY BROKE LONG ENOUGH FOR THEIR TECHS TO DIAGNOSE WITH THEIR EQUIPMENT EVEN AFTER HAVING THE CAR FOR 2 FULL DAYS, DESPITE THIS PROBLEM SEEN VISUALLY BY DEALER AND ON VIDEO RECORDING. SUSPECT TIPM / ECM, INTEGRATED VOLTAGE REGULATOR IS AT FAULT...

THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON INTERMITTENTLY. THE ENGINE RPM REVS UP BUT THE TRANSMISSION DOES NOT GO INTO THE HIGHER GEAR. THIS HAS RESULTED IN DANGEROUS SITUATIONS WHEN THE CAR DOES NOT ACCELERATE DUE TO FAILURE TO GO INTO THE HIGHER GEAR. THE INTEGRATED POWER MODULE WAS REPLACED. DROVE WITHOUT A PROBLEM FOR A WEEK AND THEN THE PROBLEM RECURRED. SUSPICION IS THAT IT IS THE TRANSMISSION MODULE; THAT THERE IS FAULTY COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION MODULES. ITS ALREADY COST ME OVER $1200 AND NO SOLUTION IN SIGHT. AFRAID TO TAKE IT OUT ON THE HIGHWAY AND RISK A CATASTROPHE. IF CHRYSLER IS NOT AWARE OF THE PROBLEM IT SHOULD BE. THEY SHOULD RECALL ALL AFFECTED PT CRUISERS, REPLACE THE MODULES AND PREVENT ANY CASUALTIES OR INJURIES.
