Question Tail lights don't flash when opening doors remotely

Hello all! I have 2001 PT Cruiser.

My tail lights don't blink any more when I use remote to unlock. I can hear the thump that the doors are unlocking, but lights don't blink. I don't know until i get close to it to see if doors are unlocked. They stopped working maybe about a month ago. Trying to find out if it could be a fuse or if it would need to be reprogrammed somehow.

I have another 2001 PT Cruiser and that one works fine.

Does the horn chirp when using the remote to unlock? That probably goes along with the lights that blink and on page #17 of the owners manual it tells you how to stop/start the horn chirp.

yes, the horn chirps when you lock it, not when you unlock it.

OK, dumb question, did you look at both taillights. Maybe the one your looking at is burnt out? Just guessing.

Found this: Follow the instructions for the NON-EVIC equipped cars.

To Turn Off "flash Lights With Lock; Panic Alarm - Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner's Manual [Page 25]

Read all the way to the end of that paragraph where it says how to turn them back on.

But at the end it says: The "Flash Lights on Lock/Unlock" features can be reactivated by repeating this procedure.

So if yours might be turned off, try the procedure to see if it re-activates them.

huh, i guess it's worth a try. does that mean the programming is tied together then??

Because, they flash with the lock feature, just not with the unlock.

That's confusing You might just have some sort of electrical fault that will need a good wiring diagram.
