Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
It could be the alternator . measure the output voltage across the battery with the engine running and car in neutral with hand brake on. It should at least 13.4 volts.
If it does then I would get the battery checked at a car battery place.
A car battery place could also check your alternator.
If you are stranded at the lights suggest calling a mobile car battery replacement person or a road assist company if you are a member of one.
They can jumper a temporary mobile battery across your battery to get car out of traffic stream !

If you still have this vehicle, this car has a intermittent connection problem in the harness, or at the connections going into the firewall, the reason you're light go up and down is that it is making connection and dropping it, this will be a hard one to repair, as the TECH has to isolate the particular wire that is arcing itself on and off , if this vehicle is not had any collision problems this will help isolating it, the problem with electrical problems is that the repairman is on actual time, he punches on the time clock till repaired, if the reapir is situated to a particular part you may bring CHRYSLER IN TO IT AND THEY MAY PAY SOME OF THE CHARGES, ESP IF THERREIS A SERVICE BULLETIN ON IT, THAT'S ALL I KNOW SORRY, I AM A RETIRED MASTER ASE MECH, THIS IS WHAT I WOULD DO
