We would need the "P" codes to help you out.
This is how its done
cycle the key on off three times ending with the key on
read p0000 code in the odometer area
or try a visit to your local part or repair shop they can supply you the code
most likely free
let me know
good luck

June 22,2009 I took my car in because check engine light was on. The chrysler dealer tested it for $98-00 &recommended replacement of leak detection pump.
At a price of $588-00, if I get fixed within 3 months the $98-00 that I payed for test would apply for total of $490-00. On july 9,2009 the check engiine light went out and is still fuctioning properly. Someone told me although they are not sure that ounce the light has been on it remains in the computer and could keep the car from being smoged as I live in calif. The light has been out for a month now and was not cleared by dealer before the light went out because I told the dealer I would get it fixed later when I get more money. Hope you can explain if I need to get cleared from computer as would sav me lots of money.

If the light is out and has stayed out you should be fine. After the engine has been run through cycles, it shouldn't show any codes if the problem is gone. If you are worried about it, take it to a nationally recognized parts store and have them scan the computer and reset it. Most of them will do it for free.

My '04 Cruiser has been cruising right along since I purchased it in July '07. I got in one day and when I started it the engine began bucking and rolling. After awhile the "Check Engine Light" came on and would not reset. I took it in for service and I was informed the "code" stated cylinder #4 misfire. I was talked into a "major" tune up since I was above 30,000 miles. Won't tell you the cost. Anyway after plugs, wires, throttle plate and air intake cleaning, etc. I received my car and it worked fine - for 40 miles. While cruising at about 60 mph the "Check Engine Light" popped on and approximately 1 minute later the engine gbegan running rough. I could accelerate slowly and get to about 45 mph. Back to the shop where I was told the battery was on its last leg and it needed a new battery. After another $125.00 I got the car back. This time I was able to travel about 150 miles when - while cruising at about 45 mph the "Check Engine Light" popped on and after about a minute it began running rough. I could accelerate slowly to about 45 mph to get it home. Two days later I got in and started the car and the light reset and the car ran fine for 2 1/2 days (about 150 miles). This time I was traveling about 60 mph when the "Check Engine LIght" popped on and after about a minute it began running rough. I could run with an occasional bout of missing. Got to work and left early to stay out of traffic and get it home. While running on the interstate it would start "missing" at high speed and I would have to coast for a few seconds then continue. Eventually I had to get off the interstate and use the back roads because of the inconsistent acceleration. Finally got it home and that is where I am now. I am getting it ready to take it back to the shop but I am afraid of what I'm goinf to hear next as the problem. I found a couple of forums that talked about this problem. The only "fixes" major tune-up (done), new plugs/cables (done) replace PCM. This last one was mentioned as a potential but one the company won't suggest because they have to replace it under warranty but it makes sense. The only other thing I noticed was the alternator output sometimes is low (using a lighter plug-in meter). Something is causing the Check Engine LIght to go on before the ignition problems begin in earnest. I guess that's about it - any insight/help/assistance is deeply appreciated. I would like to better prepared when I go back to the dealer.

Thank You!

Hi:
It could be many things, but a tune up at 30K wouldn't have been one of them. Rather than going to the dealer, take the car to anationally recognized parts store and have the scan the computer. They will do it for free, and hopefully identify the problem. If the light is coming on, there is a trouble code being set.

Let me know what you find.

Do these solutions apply if the engine light comes on and the car sputters. The car has been sputtering off and on, but today the engine light came on briefly and went off as well.

If the light was on, I would recommend having it scanned to determine why it came on. Most parts stores will do it for free.

Let me know what you find.

On June 22, 2009 I took my 2004 pt cruiser in to the dealer with only 31,000 miles on it to be checked because the check engine light had come on while driving. They charge me $98. Oo dollars & recommend replace leak detecton pump for $588-00. The amount would be $490-00 because of the $98-00 ipayed for test if done within 3 months. I didn"t have the money then so I told them I would bring car back later. On Juily 9, 2009 the light went out and is working properly & is still ok after more than a month, however, someone told me that once light comes on it remains in computer and may cause it to fail smog, is this true &what should be done if it is? I don"t want to spend that much money if I don"t have to. The dealer had not cleared the light after the test. My phone: 619-265-2881 thanks.

Hello and thanks for the donation!

If the engine lamp is still illuminated, you can have almost any local auto part store to delete the stored codes. If the lamp is off then there are no stored codes at that time. If the code is deleted then the engine lamp illuminates again later, you will have to get the proper repair made. If the lamp stays off, the problem must have been intermittent and no further action is required.

Check engine light came on and car does a chugging thing until I get up to 30+ mph. Tried putting fuel injector cleaner in, light went out for couple days, then back on. Code reader says misfire cylinder 2. Is this an easy fix?

You have to know what the fix is before you will know if it's easy. At the mileage you listed it's due for spark plugs. I'd start with that before we go looking for expensive stuff.

My 2004 PT Cruiser check engine light came on. It then went out after a week. Now it came back on again. I was told by a mechanic that the engine is misfiring. I am trying to
change the spark plugs and wires. I was able to remove the (5) bolts holding down the intake manifold cover but could not proceed further. What do I need to remove in order to get free access to the plugs?

Here are the directions for removing the intake. Chances are you forgot to remove something.

1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
2. Remove or disconnect the following:

Negative battery cable
Inlet Air Temperature (IAT) sensor and air hose
Engine cover
Throttle and cruise control cables from the throttle lever bracket
Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor
Idle Air Control (IAC) motor electrical connector
Throttle Position (TPS) sensor wiring connector
Proportional purge hoses
Brake booster vacuum hose
Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) hose from the intake manifold
Throttle body support bracket bolt
Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) tube from the upper intake manifold
Upper intake manifold

3. Clean the mating surfaces.

Fig. Remove the EGR tube from the upper intake manifold

The Engine Computer detected an intermittent problem, and since it's related to something that could adversely affect emissions, it turned on the Check Engine light. It also set a diagnostic fault code to indicate the circuit that needs further diagnosis or the unacceptable operating condition. Since this is a relatively low-level problem, the light goes off when the problem is not occurring, but that doesn't mean it's okay to ignore it. Minor problems can turn into big ones sometimes if they aren't corrected.

Chrysler makes reading fault codes yourself much easier than any other manufacturer. Cycle the ignition switch from "off" to "run" three times within five seconds without cranking the engine, leave it in "run", then watch the code numbers show up in the odometer display. Reply back with those numbers and I'll figure out the likely causes.

Code 700 just means there are codes in the Transmission section of the PCM.

This is from Mitchell ProDemand:

P0882-TCM POWER INPUT LOW

Set Condition:

This DTC is set when there is less than 3.0 volts present at the transmission control output circuits located in the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) when the Transmission Control System request the power up of those circuits. Note: Due to the integration of the Transmission Control Module and the Powertrain Control Module, both systems have their own power and ground circuits..

When Monitored:

When the ignition is turned from "OFF" position to "RUN" position and/or the ignition is turned from "START" position to "RUN" position.

Possible Causes:

RELATED TIPM DTCS

TRANSMISSION CONTROL CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
TRANSMISSION CONTROL CIRCUIT OPEN
POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE

I have a code p0882. I checked the wiring diagram and the procedure to resolve the problem. The manual says to check the T15 circuit for open or shorted to ground. The circuit is not shorted or open so now I have two more option either the TIPM or the computer is bad how can I verify it?
