    Default 03 PT Cruiser lights flickering

    have a 03 PT Cruiser/2.4 turbo. Headlights, interior lights, and dash
    lights all flicker. Took to local dealer, replaced generator, did not
    fix. Replaced pcm, did not fix. dealer service tech said this is nomal
    condition and that several pt's on lot did the same. I have replaced
    battery, previous battery was leaking, and cleaned cables. Car has
    63,000+ miles. Any suggestions?

    The dealer needs to see if there is an update for the PCM. If they just
    replaced the PCM with the same controller and did not update to the newest
    software your problem may still be there. The PCM controls generator output.

    typical repair and response from a dealer
    checking and cleaning all grounds and cleaning battery terminals will more
    than likely cure this issue pull the air filter stuff and inspect the
    battery for corrision/acid all over the top of the battery

    Hey Dirt bag..which part of the OP post did you not understand... here let
    me make it easier for you again.

    Why would there be acid all over a new battery Dirtbag? Is this the reason
    why they fired your ass from the dealer? damn I hope you don't work on all
    vehicles this way.

    Just a thought!!

    gee asshole you came up! with a thought!!! i'm impressed not bad for brainless
    and you can have a new battery and it leak acid around the posts from some
    dumass dealer tech that uses airtools to tighten the battery cables hence moving
    the posts and breaking that very fragile seal
    and i see at least 3 customers a month that come in with no starts after they
    replaced their batteries because they did not properly clean and tighten the
    cables esp. on the dodge mine vans
