      Plug in a code reader and post a reply with the specific fault codes. If no codes are stored, state that.

      Any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA - as example - can scan the OBD (on-board diagnostic) system for free for you.

      See this Stoplight Switch
      For your 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser 2.4L SFI DOHC 4cyl
      http://www.autozone.com/.../N-jtv89Z9cias

      Stoplight switch directs current to the stop lights, cruise control, and shift interlock to turn them on or off
      When not replaced, stop lights will run continually or not function, potentially causing premature bulb failure, safety issues and/or the transmission will not shift out of park

      Try starting in Neutral. Check to make sure you have brake lights when applying the brakes (brake switch could be failed) This is Chryslers listed part number #4659676AC for the neutral safety switch, sometimes called a range switch. It would be listed under transmission sensors.

    Windshield wiper cleaner does not release cleaner, seems clogged.
    wiper cleaner refill container is full, cleaner dispursment stopped working a week ago. No cleaner is coming out on windshield anymore. Light on dash does not show no cleaner in refill container, it is full. Do not know how to unclog tubes, if needed.

      I'm assuming the washer pump is working. The clogged part is from the tiny washer jets. Use the paper clip and try to dislodged the residue.

      I will try that, don't know for sure if the washer pump is working or not. Might have to have it checked out. Thanks, though.

    I need to know how to get the spark plug out on number five it has the solid coil boot
    I put it on the computer an it said that it's misfiring on spark plug number 5

      Probably not the spark plug, probably a bad coil. The spark plug comes out after the coil is unplugged and the retainer bolt removed and the plug comes out with an extension and spark plug socket.

      If there is something in the way that does not allow clearance, move it. In many cases it looks impossible to gain enough clearance to remove a coil and boot but it can be done. Remember, most coil boots have some flexibility to increase your angle of exit. Obviously, the firewall can't be moved, but maybe the thing that is interfering is just attached to the firewall and it can move?

      The fan motor shaft was wobbled and caused the fan blade to hit the fan shroud. Check the fan motor.

      Likely has a bad blend door actuator or a mode door actuator. Not a DIY diagnosis usually.

      Hi Jeff , I'm not a pro but just went thru this with my Chrysler Pacifica 2004. Weeded thru pages of advice and extensive in depth a analysis that was way over my head then found the most simple tests that I could handle and performed them. First and most simple check fuses and relays in fuse box I was able to swap same from other accesories and determine not faulty . Next find where your wiring harness for the blower motor is mounted ( mine was right behind the Glove box after dropping the front door down depress sides of box and it comes right down). There was a temp controll resistor/ module with 2 plugs in it 1 was wiring from heater,a/c controls and the other ( 2 wire green and back) went to blower motor. I unplugged the 2 wire plug and from a separate 12 volt battery ran a jumper wire to the base of each wire going into plug, with key turned on (not necessary to have car running) and fan on. As soon as I touched the wires my fan worked so I knew it wasn't my blower motor, I then removed the other plug , pulled the resistor module out and checked with a cheap multimeter (set to continuity check) touch one of the terminals where the blower motors green wire was attached and to each terminal where the other plug would connect and the meter should either beep if it has that as a funtion or count down to 0 if it counts up towards infinity it will display the letters OL or just display a constant number 1 indicating the resistor is bad. Hope I made it simpler for you than it was for me and I think being both Chryslers 2004 they would be similar. Both tests worked for me and my problem is solved.
      Good luck, Tim
