Default 2009 Cruiser in Hollywood

Hello: FOR SALE -- 2009 PT Cruiser plain jane model. Two years ago I bought a 2009 Cruiser for my pregnant daughter. After about six months it started to stall and stop-and-start and a mechanic diagnosed it as a bad battery. That didn't fix the problem and both that mechanic and a second mechanic said it was the computer. But taking the advice of several of you in this forum (particularly NITROPT) I waited things out and, after several days of running the car, it stopped stalling. All went well for a year when my daughter -- now with our year-old granddaughter -- was driving on the freeway when it stalled out (fortunately it started right up again). It happened again while driving in the city -- so we took it to a reputable local mechanic, who said the battery had a dead cell and that the alternator was bad. So we replaced all that. Guess what -- that didn't solve the problem. The mechanic's diagnosis -- bad computer. So we just dropped almost a grand into it (including recharging the AC) and my daughter refuses to drive it anymore. All this by way of saying -- please make us an honest, fair offer on this vehicle -- it has 97,000 miles, the body is in good shape, interior a little ratty and -- for full disclosure -- it needs a radiator fan since -- though the AC works great -- the fan doesn't kick in at high speeds. Thanks one and all.

You have any pictures you can post?

What was the codes if you have that information that it was determined to be a bad PCM?
