View Full Version : Remote Start Won't!

I know this is not the PT Cruiser forum but it is the most read.

2006 PT Base with dealer installed Mopar remote start system. Has worked perfectly since 2006. Now, it won't start. Push the remote once and get one beep and lights flash. Push the second time, when it should start, two beeps and lights flash. Nothing else. Tested batteries in fob and they are ok.

Checked the hood open safety switch to make sure it hadn't fallen free of its mount. Any ideas?

OK, found the problem. The ground wire to the safety under-hood switch had broken off at the anchor screw. Took a section of wire I had and put on a new end and spliced it to the rest of the wire. All fixed!

Thanks for posting this info. I also have a cruiser, and wondered what that switch was. Now I'll know what to look for if I run into a similar problem.
