Missing battery temperature sensor
 
Hello all. I bought a used 2005 pt cruiser. The previous owner at some point removed the battery and tray. Although i can see where the battery temp sensor goes, I can neither find it nor the place where it might have been unplugged or cut from its harness.... Does a 2005 even have a battery temp sensor??

Could anybody send a photo???

thanx

Welcome to the forum.

Battery temperature sensor? Never heard of it. Someone tell you the PT has one?

Wooops! I take that back. Just found this:
Fault code =1478 Battery temperature sensor voltage wrong.

Nobody has ever talked about seeing that code or about that sensor but it does look like there is one.

Yep. wouldn't lie about it. there's a whole hole in the bottom of the battery tray where it's supposed to be. But I don't see the sensor anywhere. Nor any suspicious wires that would indicate it's been removed. Where's the Mystery Machine when you need it???

2005 does not have the battery temp sensor, another cost cutting move by Chrysler.

AH! that's like the built-in alarm system. On my 2001 I have a sensor near the firewall that sets the horn off if the hood is pried open when the alarm is set and the doors are closed. In later years Chrysler did away with the sensor but the holder is still there. Patric can see where the battery temperature sensor goes, but it's no longer there as pdbrains has said.

It's kind of strange that the manual still references it, and even the parts people @ the Dodge Chrysler / Agency tell me it should still have one.

(not to mention the hole in the tray.)

But if it were missing, I'd think i'd get a OBD code...and I don't get that, either.....

So, you can see why i 'd be confused.....

But it makes sense.


Thanks

Can you verify that statement?
I recently replaced a fan module on a 2005 PT. It did indeed have a battery temp sensor, as well as the ambient temp sensor in front of the radiator.
The sensor clips into the bottom center of the tray, from underneath the battery.

Do you remember what harness feeds it???

These (battery overheat) sensors were only found on the 01-04? And maybe some 05's?
