Did this video help you?

John Lisk: Misleading indeed. How is this a video on trouble shooting the fog lights. You didn't trouble shoot anything other the cause of the battery being dead. Replace the mutil-function switch and you'll solve the fog light issues and solve the dead battery issue at the same time.

manuel pichardo: instead of paying over 70 fpr the whole swith box, just go buy a power switch, some cable and pins, take off the fuse. strip some wire. add a pin to each end of the wire. connect the swith to the wire. insert 1pin to one side of wjere the fuse is inserted and the other end of the wire to the other side of the fuse box. that the swithc should turn on/off ur fogs. easy fiix

Nancy Payton: I agree with Mr Lisk - this was a complete waste of time - it's not 'troubleshooting' the fog lamp issue, it's a nearly 8 minute disappointment with many moments of gut-wrenching spinning video and nauseating sway. You might want to call this video - how to jump start a PT cruiser. At least that title will be somewhat accurate.

toyo supra: what a misleading title....

just for you..: I have a 2001 cruiser and I love it.

vestern22: with manual transmission you can get car started if someone pushed the car a little

simple1me302: my fog light problem showed its self to me with smoke, smoke from around steering wheel , i took cover off of steering by the hazzard light button, and unplugged the wire assemly that was smoking, problem solved , but could have been a big problem if whole car caughton fire, these people behind desks , put this crap in these cars and dont consider safety it seems,,

Jose Macias: Amainzing video

Jose Macias: Asta llore de saber que eran fog ligth y que tu descubrists la falla

Tim Lamb: My 2001 had the same issue. I put a new turn signal stalk in, and it was fine after that.

Dat Cat in those hats: BTW had the same problem with the multifunction stalk. Woke up to a dead battery, not a hard job to replace though.

Slightlyevil: I thought so too, till I owned one...

WHOO222: lol this vid was posted a long time ago and he already sold the car

filthydirtyhooker: I like how he says "there is no negative" when at 1:33, I can clearly read the word "negative" Chances are, it's 2 separate problems, a weak battery and a foglight problem, likely the switch

yorkandpomona: @markymark9172 where is this fuse located and is it just for the fog lights? or does the fuse have multi function? having this exact problem....

Steve Miller: My grandfather's 2004 PT Limited does the same thing, except when he leaves the turn signal switch in the left turn signal mode when he turns off the car, then they stay off. I know you probably sold it, but just saying to try that the next time you may have a similar issue. :)

I FLY TOO: my greek 2002 model just burned the left fog light

Jon Peterson: Did he fix the problem, or did he end up selling the car with the fuse pulled for the fog lamps. You would think he would follow up on the video after the dealer fixed the problem. Ive also never seen someone be so rough on a vehicle. ex: slamming the shifter from Park into Drive, Drive into Reverse...so on and so forth. Not sure if I would want to buy a vehicle from this guy.

Woman: Update: New Battery died earlier today, so i gave it a jump. I think the MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH or the alternator need to be replaced. Will update again after mechanic checks it out

Sonata0610: If I ever pass a car dealership at night and I see a car with the fog lights coming on, I'd say "That car is haunted!"

cameron7710: ya i hate those cars that have 2 rev limeters

Saabkyle04: yeah I have no idea haha, it just might be

Saabkyle04: haha

syyenergy7: You'll need a new battery if you 100% discharged it several times. Also it is better to ground to the body vs the battery anyway. True Chrysler quality is pretty poor.

NickWilliam89: We have a purple PT Cruiser, but man, those jump start attachments to that car are f***ed up.

PMUBstudios: This just happened to me today! How did they fix the fog lights?

Joe Pine: sounds like a stuck relay

Brittany Morris: 1996 dodge ram 1500 error code p1899 solution?

Goldenrod636: Chrysler makes kick ass leather seats.

naterade21: @djkain2007 the limiter in my old mans malibu is 4000rpm

holidayjay9704: I had that same problem I just replaced the fog Steering wheel lights Control switch cost $89 for it easy to do but the box connectors are fragile and brake easy.

djkain2007: 3500 rpm rev limiter... damb!!! my 1999 chevy cavalier rs coupe doesn't have a tachometer but it also doesn't have a rev limiter like davesfarm - his 1994 cavalier has a rev limiter

andrenegwer: Solution : remove the fog light fuse

David Muñoz: your car is old and has over 10 years, it is obvious that you will leave details, is a very nice car, I have a 2002, very little maintenance that I have given,

Thee3rdprophet: i kind of laughed when you knew the battery was dead and u still tried to start it..only problem i have really seen is the bearings fall out of the ignition switch leaving you stranded in a pos...still better than some cars but i like sports/trucks not compact gocart type deals

t saint j: This is also EXACTLY what mine does, what did you finally have to do with it ?

TJC450: @filthydirtyhooker I didn't see that either

SilentServiceCode: It actually points to the negative jump point. The chassis is negative, so. I'm not sure why you haven't seen that.

Saabkyle04: Yeah that's the way my 300M was, this one is actually where I put it, if you go back and look at the video carefully, it says negative next to the big screw haha

keebler156: its a commonn problem with pt cruisers the problem lies with the multifunction switch (the switch that controls the lights and the turn signals and what not, you have to get that replaced, probably a 50 dollar part, for a temporary you can pull the fuse until you can fix it

I FLY TOO: hi, did you find any solution?

jdunn903: changing front struts

Bo Gut: I don't get how this vid can be called trouble shooting if you didn't look on what was causing the problem. It only a 7:53minute vid on how to remove a fuse.

eduardo montez: This car is freakin ugly

Troy Caldwell: this is the same problem with my 2001 pt cruzer

Datcoolguy857: @SilentServiceCode

bd398226: my grandmothers 300c just died they just got a 2009 malibu

WiiMan1012: I heard that WD-40 and fine grade steel wool will even it out, i am planning to to this experiment to my 2003 pt.

lg12368: you said fod lights

MegaBerserker1: switch in my 01 limited edition cruiser and my wife's 05 convertible gt high output turbo cruiser both went bad ya gotta pull the fuse so your battery doesn't get drained...If you notice you hooked the jumper to the negative connection it is funny because they both went bad about 4 years
