a/c low pressure cycling switch is located on top of the accumulator. The accumulator is a large silver canister located toward the passenger side rear of engine compartment. The switch has a two wire electrical connector that needs to be disconnected, the switch can then be unscrewed and replaced with new. Strongly recommend replacing the o-ring that seals the switch.

The correct battery size for the '02 PT Cruiser is: 26R. The "R" means that the positive and negative posts are in a reversed position from a normal battery. Replacement… is not as simple as it would be in most cars, but I found a how-to-video on YouTube that walked me through the process. I just replaced the OEM battery in my '02 and had a little trouble finding the proper size in my local retail shops. I chose an Optima yellow-top battery I found from a dealer on eBay (Optima Trays.) Optima batteries cost a little more, but are excellent. They have great cranking power and deep cycling abilities. This will probably be the last battery I have to buy for my PT.
My research says that the switches use LEDs which are not replaceable in the traditional sense. It appears that the only option is to replace the entire switch or switch assem…bly.
The 2002 PT cruiser is equipped with an automatic transmission. The automatic transmission does not have a standard clutch. The transmission will need to be completely reb…uilt.

I drove with my wife to sedona from mesa AZ (100+ miles) in our 2002 pt cruser Limited Edition to celebrate our one year aniversary, and my alternator bearring went bad. The t…ension bolt sanpped, and I have no clue how we made it there. It was Saturday and all the shops were closed, so I took it to a checker auto. My brother had to drive up the alternator, they didn't have it in stock. I guess he even had a hard time finding one in the main city. I was able to change it there in the checker parking lot, I ended up fishing it up through the top between the firewall and engine. I had to press some of the lines against the firewall really tight to the wall in order for it to fit it. It was a really tight squeeze but it fit, and it saved me from having to remove the transaxle. Also the eletrical harness/clip going into the alternator has a red thing that slides to one side in order to unclip it. they keep making those things harder and harder to figure out. My brother bought the part for $252.83 at pepboys. They were the only ones who had one in stock. There is a $52 core return when you take back the old one. they didn't have the tension bolt, so I had to use the lug wrench to pull it tight and just put a bolt and screw through the top. It wasn't fun, especially having my bother bunk with us on our aniversary night, car works, and my wife still loves me. Thanks Checker for letting me use your tools. Those guys were awesome!
First jack up the front of the car and suspend it with jackstands from behind the front wheels, you'll need to drop the crossmember under the steering in order to get th…is done. Unfortunately that crossmember is also attached to your suspension. Before dropping the crossmember too low, you must disconnect the steering shaft from the steering assembly (it's a resistance pin, I just used an air hammer to knock it out). Lower the crossmember, replace the steering components by removing the 4 bolts holding it to the crossmember and the 2 fluid lines, and the ball joints at the axles. Finally, put it all back together and raise the crossmember back in place. Oh, and then go get an alignment at your normal dealership. Refill with ATF+4 fluid when you're done. By the way, the 2007 PT Cruiser with 38,000 miles that I just replaced this on cost $263 for the remanufactured parts from the local Chrysler dealer, I did the work myself to save the $550 labor charge. New parts were quoted to me for $485. So if you want new parts and them do the labor, around $1000. And hopefully you're not like me with 2k miles over the full warranty and having them laugh when you ask if it's covered under the 7/70 portion of the warranty. It's not hard to do, took me about 4 hours total and I'm an amateur mechanic working out of my house garage. Total replacement cost including the alignment (less my labor) was about $325.
The multifunction switch attaches to the steering column. It contains the turn signals, wipers, headlights, etc....
To replace the motor mounts on a PT Cruiser, the motor must be held in place and kept from falling with jacks designed to hold the weight. Then the old mounts can be remov…ed and new ones put in. If the motor mount is not readily accessible from the top, some engine parts might need to be removed, like the battery. Never go underneath the vehicle to remove the old motor mounts.
easy as taking off the two bolts that hold it and take off the clamp that holds the hose to the housing..it should take 30 minutes tops. I changed mine in about that tim…e.
Remove the battery, radiator support brackets, battery air filter housing, and air filter hose. Raise the vehicle, and drain radiator. disconnect the transmission cooler l…ines, and the radiator fan. Unbolt the radiator an remove. Reverse the process to install.
The led light in the window switch is not replaceable. It is onlyserviced with the entire switch.
On the turn signal lever next to the headlamps switch. It's the one that controls the dashboard light brightness
It is the combination turn signal, high beam, head light switch.
I believe the starter relay switch is in the fuse box that is under the hood. On my 2005 this is right behind the battery on the drivers side.
Chrysler vehicles do not have inertia switches.
Need to clarify what you are asking. The Horn Relay is inside the relay/fuse box behind the battery. The Horn Switch is located in the air bag in front of the steering wheel. …You must replace the air bag module to replace the Horn Switch. The Horn switch grounds the relay which then powers the horns.
