Do you move the steering column setting when you drive it?

I had asked because of the wiring harness for the ignition in the steering column.

Maybe it's your telekinetic powers interfering with the electricals?

Default Re: strange happenings 2006 pt problem codes

This sounds like the same problem I'm having! My wife has a 2006 pt convertible 2.4 touring and we are going nuts. (76,XXX miles)

She will drive it with no problems however if I drive we have the same issues. We went out for dinner and on the way home we stopped for gas and change drivers. BOOM! stuck in limp mode with the check engine light coming on and the only way to get it working is to do the on-off-on-off thing with the ignition. The check engine light will stay on for one or two days.

When we check the codes we get:

P0218
P0714
P0882
P0700
P1603

Without any repairs she will drive it to work and on the way home the check engine light goes out and everything works as if nothing happen.

This will happen about one every two weeks.

I would say you have problem with the transmission computer. Or maybe a computer re flash.
