Default Help! Flashing dashboard lights!

I have a 2006 diesel PT Cruiser (sparkly silver, and I love her more than life itself).

Last night and again this morning, the dashboard lights flashed briefly a couple of times, before going out one by one. There was no loss of drive or performance, the car felt exactly the same, and the only thing I noticed was that the rear windscreen heater turned itself off at the same time. Could this be what is causing the problem?

I have owned the car for just under a year, and this is the first problem I have had with her.

Any ideas anyone?

You have a diesel and probably right hand drive. The forum is made up of 99 1/2% 2.4 liter gasoline engines which are the only engines available in the U.S. A lot of problems are the same in both engines but I think the United Kingdom PT Cruiser site, where they have plenty of diesel engines with their own particular problems, would be a better place to ask your questions. A great bunch of people and a really great mechanic under the username "DREDD" that can probably answer your question.

Here's the site: UK Cruisers Club Forum Information

Oooooh! This is a USA site - doh!

Sorry to waste your time guys, heading for the UK site now.

(And you were right - she is a right-hand drive, 2.2 ltr!)

Thanks for the heads up on the UK site. Bye!
