Default My Cruiser wont start

Hi, This is my first time on the PT forum.... and sadly it's not because I am having a good day and happy with my car I just drove my car the other day and it was running great no problems over a mountain highway. I have been home for less than 36 hours and went to start it.... it started and died right away 3 times and now... nothing. I tried to Jumpstart it and was not successful..... Using your "trick" i found the error code as P1685 or Driver 5 Line 5.... Does anyone know what this is? Or more likely how expensive this is? The other thing that I read was about the SKIM problem.... I left my regular keys at work today and used a spare that I haven't ever tried... by the looks of the description regarding the SKIM problem this is what my car has done, does that mean if I use the right key tomorrow my car will start???

it should start with the right key. just to be on the safe side i would disconnect the battery first, clearing the codes so there would be no conflict.

that's what i would do anyway. good luck.

and for tho's who need to know what kinda PT it is, by his/her user name i'm guessing it's an 01', but we still need to know if it's an NA or turbo.

Thank you for your quick response, I will have a look at it this afternoon! Wish me luck as that battery looks like it's not an easy one to remove. Oh and it is not a turbo!

What about the answer I gave you for the same question on your other thread? Did you try the right key? Please don't post the same thing twice in two different areas of the forum.
