    Am I the only one that thinks that engine is toast? Cadence?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CoolKids says:

    You might as well open a PT cruiser repair shop at this point

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ian Mcleod says:

    After the first two Cruisers with radiator and condenser problems I think to find the ground, all the wheels should come off first. To bad your can't order those Cruisers to explode into parts on command. Glad I didn't buy one of those back in the day worse than Subaru!

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ian Mcleod says:

    I've witnessed you repair two PT Cruisers, those two owners have told all their fellow PT Cruiser Club friends that your a magician with PT Cruisers. Welcome to your new life. Raymond the PT dude!

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Swartzwelder says:

    Did you check the neutral safety switch? I didn't see it on your diagram so perhaps the PCM does not turn that ground on unless it is satisfied with the state of the neutral safety switch. Although that car is old and I'd think it would be in series with the crank signal from the ignition switch? I avoid Chrysler so I don't know. Great video! Thanks for bringing us along!

    cant run with no GAS??

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rob8742 says:

    When will people learn some cars just aren't worth the money to fix them

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Erik Hilsinger says:

    Bad capacitors from the early 2000s? my 2004 Ford excursion had bad caps and the junkyard replacement from the same year had defective caps. Had to send it out to a shop that could remove the potting epoxy, replace the exploded parts, and regoop it. Fun.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Casmige says:

    Park/Neutral safety switch.
    Brake/shifter interlock switch.
    Immobilizer module (antitheft)

    Before you do all that other fancy testing & everything you always check for spark you always check for a fuel & you spray a little carb cleaner into the already open throttle-body to see (while you jump start it with the test lead), if it starts & runs.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars u h says:

    Check for a SKIM key mismatch error which would be the chip is not being detected or the PCM was replaced and the chip was not programmed. Get a DRB III to program. Oh and the no start condition may be a broken timing belt but the good thing is that it’s a non-interference engine.

    Also, 01-03 non-turbo pcms are interchangeable but the VIN code needs to be configured in the PCM for it to work. During the onboarding process the SKIM module is also configured to the PCM. I have instructions for programming the new PCM using a DRB III if ya need it.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Al Niemann says:

    It's been my experience that you only need two tools to fix a 20+ yr old PT loser;
    A gallon of gasoline and a match 👍

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rks23 says:

    High pitched sound …

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars julio says:

    The famous PT cruiser round three fight 😂😂

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Gomez says:

    Question! Do Throttle spacers work??? Adding horsepower or torque??

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris J says:

    How come you didn't check power and grounds for the pcm

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul .a larner says:

    looks like imobiliser issue to me!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars franco deiuliis says:

    You must want to puke when a pt cruiser shows up lol
    Cheers from Nova Scotia

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hugh Jass says:

    It ain't got no gas in it

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ross Bowman says:

    If that PCM was replaced it might not be programed. Check to see if it was with your scanner. Good luck Ray.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Emerson says:

    A thermite grenade would solve most of the problems I had when I owned a PT Cruiser. I spent a few thousand bucks on repairs before I figured that out.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dropdoc says:

    Is that a chipped key with theft deterrent? With the column disassembled It may be worth checking to see if that system was disconnected or a neutral safety switch is bad.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Landess says:

    I know I know this is completely off topic and answered already but what kind of rear view cam do you have in the Silverado Ray

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars davidbwa says:

    How did you end up with so many PT Cruisers? Was a tow yard auction having a bulk sale?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blade says:

    Ray you need yourself tablet or a laptop that you can pull up the warring diagrams on, and have it with you and situations like that.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars russell crawford says:

    Neighbor had a ram truck that kept leaving him stranded. Had it towed many times to the dealer only to start. Could not duplicate the problem. Finally they duplicated it. The key wasn't being recognized and wouldn't allow cranking. Not familiar with pt cruiser but perhaps has similar technology. I'd definitely look into it prior to condemning the computer

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Allen says:

    I have the same model and year PT Cruiser. What I have learned is the SKIM must first recognize the key and then sends a ground command to the PCM, and then the PCM must send the ground to the relay. If the PCM was changed and not matched to the SKIM/key, the PCM may not be the problem, only the SKIM/key are not matched to each other and then the PCM doesn't recognize the signal. Been there and done that.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars m35a2ww says:

    Neutral safety switch? Brake switch?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee Trent says:

    I would check the T C M however service writers diagnose from their desk.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thunder Beast says:

    Graveyard of PT Cruisers lol

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars N6DL says:

    park/neutralinterlock

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MR HEART says:

    Just a question. If the PCM is faulty. If you turned it on and attached the scan tool. It would not be able to communicate.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Philippi says:

    What is with it with PT cruisers in Florida? They are like cockroaches.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blitz6804 says:

    "Lighting is terrible and there's no space to work in" So… it's a PT Cruiser?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wolfguardian says:

    I gott a fix…Gallon 'a gas 'n a Road Flare…..

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars crp gap says:

    What planet are we on? How can soooo many PT Cruisers exist in one place? And should they?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Diana B says:

    Florida, land of the PT Cruisers. 😁

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Rice says:

    Personally I would check if the key(s) are programmed to the vehicle before yanking the pcm unless you've already ruled that out. Granted these pcms on anything chrysler older than 2011 are junk.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Miranda says:

    You got the anti theft activated that is the red light on the left gauge…

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Thurgood says:

    Ray, there's a very high pitched sound whenever your camera was near the PCM. I could hear it change when cranking so it was definitely coming from the car. Sound went away when battery was disconnected.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 1045120967384668 says:

    The fuel Guage did show empty. Maybe it has no fuel. Just thought i'd point that out

    + the anti theft i'm betting they have not had the key re-coded to match the anti-theft from the replaced PCM the door buttons not working happened when i changed my broken 1 with 1 from the wreckers and didn't get the key recoded.

    Long story short the key needed re-programming with one of those key programming devices that most locksmith's have or mobile road side assistance have in there aresonal of tools.

    Darn Ray….when it comes to cars / trucks, is there anything you don’t know????
    You are so young to know so much!!!!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Seth Sternin says:

    you have patience ray

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars evilborg says:

    brake or parking switch??

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim C says:

    With other people said I think it's the security system stopping it from cranking. Could be key not programed into system happens alot when batteries get disconnected frequently which would shut all systems off also those older Chrysler car if you put a computer programed it could trigger all computers to look for the security. Other car ok for test parts Chrysler you can get a bunch of headaches if not do right

    Ray your content is lacking as is your location. You should go ask for your old job back,Or you could continue as you are with people on you tube praising you for being a big headed c@nt. Your current location looks cheap. I think you are living for you tube maybe take a step back.
