Remove door panel and check for power to door lock actuator - if power is available when remote is pressed then replace door actuator.

SOURCE: No power whatsoever to 2002 PT Cruiser

Start by checking the battery even if it's new. If the alternator is not charging it, it will go dead even if it's new. If a recharge gets it started, then get the alternator checked. Once running a simple check of the Alt. is to put a voltmeter across the battery terminals and see if you have 14v which usually indicates it's OK. If the Alt. is OK look for a battery drain. Something staying on all the time even when the engine is off.

sorry not sure the 12v prob will help this swtich works on 5v off 3v unlock 1v lock single wire lock/unlock logic signals
I found wiring diagrams at
it is 2004 but use the wiring diagrams to test the wires
(most likely to fail where they flex)
because it is using logic gates disconnect the plug at each end of the wire you are testing or the damn thing will find a few diffrent ways to trick you.

SOURCE: Power door locks quit working, both interior


how did you check the relays, to find the problem with the door locks you need to remove the door panel and test for power at the door lock actuator or you can just buy the master switch and put it in and see if it works.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 pt

If you scroll through these questions, you see this same problem over and over with all makes of cars. myself i think the best course of action is to have a dealer permanently disable it. it has to be in their repertoire of services because it is such a frequent complaint. if the dealer does it you suffer a much lower chance of collateral damage to other gadgets in the electrical system. pay whatever it costs as the thing will cost you in annoyance and dead batteries. however put a note in the back of the owners manual so a subsequent owner does not come on here and ask how to turn the system back on, which is another frequent question. and hey don't buy a used car with an air suspension system in it.

Where is BCM located on 2002 PT Cruiser locks working even when car is not on have been told to check BCM don't know where to find it

I don't find a body control module for your car, but according to the wiring diagram the door locks are controlled by a keyless entry module which is located on top of the dash behind the ac vents.
There are three fuses that power the module.
Check with your dealer for more details.

I was installing a cd player in my pt cruiser and now the interior lights and door locks and some of the dash lights want work i checked the fuses and they seem fine

Be sure too carfully inspect all the fuses especially the fuse running the interior of the car. You can narrow down the fuse by looking in your owners manual. Some blown fuses may look ok at first glance but may actually be blown.

My 2001 pt cruiser auto door locks no longer work nor does the key fob. The door locks were acting like sssharp's - doing their own thing and locking or unlocking on their own and rattling in the back door...

As stated above, it is most likely your RKE (remote keyless entry module). It is easy to find and relatively easy to replace yourself. I just recently did so on my 2002 PT Cruiser. Got a used module from a 2005 at a salvage yard. Put in the module myself. However, you do have to take it to the dealer to reprogram so your remotes work with the module replacement. That cost me $50. If you are interested in doing the labor yourself, email me.

During a cold spell, the door lock button and remote stopped working. I checked the fusses but I can't figure out what is wrong with it.

it's probably frozen...doesn't take much if there's moisture in your door mechanisim.
Try lock deicer or "rust chec"...and spray in your latch area on your door as well as in the "key lock" area.

If your remote still doesn't work change the battery in it.
