Default starter?

My PT cruiser won't start today...just get a series of clicks and no turn-over. Recently, I got an engine light and when did the OBD the codes said two things were wrong - "air/fuel mixture inappropriate" and "battery disconnected in last 50 starts".... battery checked fine, started several times after engine light came on, but won't start today...long series of clicks.

Do the lights and other electrics work? On first glance sounds like flat batt to me.
Short ram intake, chrome grill, chrome belt line, drilled/slotted discs, few flames, engine dress up, chrome bits and pieces.

Thumbs up Re: starter?

x2 what he said or your battery term.are corroded also look at your battery cables are they in good shape and the battery ground check check to make sure it is making good contact,
It takes 8,460 bolts to assemble an automobile,
and one nut to scatter it all over the road

Battery disconnected is also a shared code with 'Beginning of sequence'

They just don't tell you that.
