Re: Back door won't open with remote key

A friend has a much newer than mine PT Cruiser, it has the full hatch back door on it. It will not open at all.

Is there a way to manually open it?

I bought a nice push button switch to replace...

Re: No Bass Front Front

6.5" 4 ohm for the front but 8 ohm will be ok too. The plastic speakers went to hell in my '05 PT GT convertible shortly after I got it. I put a pair of 8 ohm spark-o-matic speakers from the '70's...

Re: discovered something new today..

I would be surprised if the panic button chip is not on board your junker key fob as well.

I do wonder if your UK PT would have the circuit for it to activate though.

Re: Am I in the right Forum?

When I see things like this I immediately think of Bursa Power sneaking back in to stir the pot.

Re: Speaker Adapters for Door Speakers

You could get some plywood and make a slug with a hole in it to mount the speakers.

Even with the limited wood working tools I have I could do that.

Who cares how pretty they are, you don't...

Re: Speaker Adapters for Door Speakers

I got some for my front doors on eBay. You could just cut the speaker out of the old one and use that to mount your new ones I think.

That is if your old ones are toast anyway.

Re: Battery Light Intermittently comes on.

By chance do you have a smart phone? If so order an ELM 327 Bluetooth device and download one of the many OBDII apps out there.

I paid for the Torque app on the amazon site because I wanted the...

Re: I need to replace the gas filter. What should I buy exactly

There may be an added later inline fuel filter, check the line to see if you find one.

My PT GT does have a added inline fuel filter that I had to change. I don't think it came on the car when it...

Re: Battery Light Intermittently comes on.

Since you have checked the battery connections and claim they are clean its a good bet that the alternator is having a problem. I would check the cluster of ground wires on the passengers side inner...

Re: PT CRUISER WON'T START!

if the starter is working right the crankshaft will still turn even if the timing belt is broken so the pulleys that turn things like the air conditioning and alternator will still move.

Re: Alternator Output Volts

If he uses an analog VOM he really wouldn't need a battery in the meter at all. The voltage source will drive the meter just fine.

A digital meter would need a battery to run the LCD screen...

Re: Alternator Output Volts

Ideally you should see around 14.8 volts at the battery with the engine running.

If you have a VOM {Volt Ohm Meter} to check it with. A lot of folks have a voltage gauge in the dash of their cars....
