Default Help, my PT Cruiser's gone crazy!

I've had my PT Cruiser since June 2000, and over the last three years I've experienced a ton of problems, but nothing like what's been going on. For the last few days, the door locks have been malfunctioning, opening and closing and turning the overhead lights on without warning. Nothing else is affected, the car still drives fine through the ordeals, but it is making the car awful annoying.

I really hope that it's not something I've got to involve my local dealership with. Their service department is full of the biggest crooks I've ever encountered.

Don't worry - Your dealership isn't the only one.

How many miles??

There's a little over 45,000.

I really haven't been able to take it out for long trips like I always imagined I would. Mostly just day tripping around the county.

Do a seaarch here on RKE - Remote Keyless Entry Module - it sits behind the radio - they sometimes go beserk.
You can get the part from New and Pre-owned Chrysler dealer in Wycoff, NJ Wycoff Chrysler and if you're handy, replace it yourself, or have a mechanic do it. Ask around for a good mechanic.
