2006 PT Cruiser Engine Light Codes
Just bought a used 2006 PT Cruiser w/ 55,000 miles and sure enough 2 days later the engine light came on. I did the trick to get the codes and then I looked up the codes and this is what I found:
PO139 is for slow response time on the Bank 1 switch 2 02 sensor.
(need new o2 sensor???)
PO513 is for an invalid skin key.
(????) what does this mean?
These don't look real serious but we have a 5,000 mile warranty so I am wanting to get this fixed.
Thanks for your help!
Re: 2006 PT Cruiser Engine Light Codes
Are you getting the fault lights and no problems associated with it?
It's possible that an 02 sensor is needed. Take off the negative battery cable for about 5 minutes to see if the light comes back on.
P0513 - Invalid SKIM Key Detected
Trouble Code Conditions:Key on, and the PCM detected an invalid Sentry Key Immobilizer key had been inserted into the ignition key assembly.
Incorrect VIN in the PCM
No communication between the PCM and the SKIM
SKIM trouble codes present (check for any SKIM codes)
Valid SKIM key not present
VIN not programmed into the PCM
PCM has failed
Same thing for this code. Clear it and see it if comes back.
