Default 2002 wants to die when driving

On my way home from work today car felt jerky at fairly low speed, the all the lights and gauges started freaking out. Did this a number of times. Made it home, did the turn the key code check and got multiple codes.
P 1684, 0505, 0134, 0551, 0456. My check engine and air bag lights have been on ohhh for about as long as I have had the car...and I bought it brand new.

Any suggestions besides its time for a new car...that Hellcat Challenger is looking better and better

Have the faults codes cleared (free at most auto stores) and see what comes back. Most of them are probably old.

BTW: If you can afford the $60K+ for the new hellcat, what ARE you doing driving an 02 PT?

Thank you I will have codes cleared in the morning.

And about check engine/air bag lights - have had it checked out several times and no one ever seemed to concerned about it. Has run fine for a very long time.

P1684 ONLY one not to worry about
P0505 Idle Air Controller
P0134 02 sensor
P0551 Power Steering Pressure Switch
P0456 EVAP System Small Leak


They should have ALL been checked out except the first one.

Please be advised,In a county/state that has emissions testing It is a fine of up to $5,000 for an employee of an automotive store or shop that is not certified and regulated to "clear an emissions code" My county sends pigeons out daily......
Don't cause some one to loose their job doing you a free favor......
Buy you a Code Reader,you can clear your own code...

Thanks for the info. He lives in Florida and there's no tests what-so-ever for anything in this state.
