Default several codes

I have 2003 pt turbo. Check engine light on codes 703, 315, 301, 201, 480, 443.
I have replaced plugs, spark cables, &proportional purge solenoid.

Help where do I go from here? Thanks Ron

Hey Ron, do us all a favor and check in and introduce yourself and your PT. Also, how did you arrive at those codes? The engine trouble codes should all be proceeded by a P or did you just not post the P?

I would suggest you get a battery load test done with the battery in the PT Cruiser. Check all battery cable connections.

If you have already tried resetting the codes and they come back then I would suggest that your battery voltage might be dropping enough where you are loosing communications to some of your modules.

Has your engine light been on for a while?

Make sure they set the battery load tester correctly. Sometimes they only set it up for 400 for 4 cylinder.

It will be the specification on the battery. If the battery Load tester is CCA rated than your battery bale might say 475cca, 550cca, 600cca ,etc., on a label somewhere. That would be the setting for the tester. If they go with a lower cca the test result may show a bad battery testing good.

What do you mean you charged battery on way to O'Reilly? You do realize that an alternator will NOT charge a discharged battery, right? It's there to maintain the charge that's in the battery and for the electrical systems to draw from. Now, a slightly discharged battery will charge somewhat from the alternator, but if you've got 10 or 11 volts in it, the alternator will NOT bring it up to 12.5. Get that sum beech load tested at O'Reilly and have them check the charging system for you too.
