#266 of 323 Goofy Dimmer lights
Jan 21, 2010 (8:29 pm)
My 2004 PT is acting strange. When I insert the key into the ignition the car dings like the lights are on, they aren't. Then when I start the car and turn the headlights on, the dome light comes on and stays on. I have to turn the dimmer switch into the off position before the dome light goes out. Also when starting off from a stop the car dings once. I'm wearing my seat belt. I've opened the door and manually closed the latch to see if that stops it, nope.. I'm thinking it is the turn signal/headlight/dimmer/Hazard assmbley. Any insights??

I had that problem a few months ago, My PT has 105,000 on it. It was the Plugwires. I also had the dealer Flash the computer with no luck. Pulled the plugs out and seen the Carbon tracks down the side of the plugs. Replaced new Plugs and Plugwires. That fixed the problem for me.

jBeavers;to day i repaired the same problems on my sons 2002 PT. what i found was the power feed wire to the fuse block under the dash had burned in side of the gray molex plug. to repair i pulled out the 40AMP green fuse under the hood that was marked head lights.then under the dash i released the molex lock pulled it apart. i cut the red wire with a white stripe feeding the plug and the same wire on the other side of the plug. went and bought a 50AMP toggle swicth at the auto parts store and wired it between the two cut wires for a quick safety kill switch and problem sloved.All lights on again. good luck!

Here is the fix, at the area were you untwist the harness to replace the bulb, next to this is a post. In this post there is a hole-fill with water proof calk, use alot on the outside area facing you, this area gets hit by a strong blast of water.

I'm having this same problem exactly right now with a 2003 PT did you ever get it figured out? what was it?

I had it narrowed down to the battery or ignition switch assembly I tested the Specific Gravity in the battery and found one weak cell. I replaced the battery and reset the computer now it works fine now. My wife's coworker had the same thing on her 2005 PT but had to replace the switch assembly on hers. Hope this helps..

just had this problem yesterday- I realize it's been a few months but do you recall which fuse # to pull? My owner's manual indicates the fog light fuse is #21 I think but there is no fuse slot for 21

My fog lights stopped working around 40K...but would come on intermittently when driving at night with the light on (of course). I pulled the fuse..I don't remember which one it was..
