2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 55,000 miles

I have a 2006 PT Cruiser (convertable). Last night while driving home, my windshield wipers would only work on the highest speed and even then were very sluggish. About a mile from my house, they stopped working completely.

This morning my car wouldn't start. The interior lights came on (and I'm assuming exterior as well), but wouldn't start. It made kind of a ticking sound (it sounded really angry so I didn't do it much).

Could the two be related? Any ideas as to what's wrong?

Thanks so much and Happy Thanksgiving!

Start by trying to jump start, if you can get battery checked at most autoparts stores.
