I have a new 2003 PT Cruiser, and the trip odometer resets
itself if the car sits for a couple of days without being
driven. Any thoughts about why this is happening and how it
can be corrected?
When I first started noticing this happen I took it to the
dealer who replaced the instrument cluster. At first I
thought the problem was fixed, but then I realized that the
car simply had to sit for a longer length of time before its
trip odometer reset itself. I guess if I drove the car more
regularly I wouldn't have a problem. However, my job
requires me to travel, so I have to leave the car in the
airport parking lot for several days at a time. Anyway, I'm
concerned that I may have stumped my dealer's service
department as well as Chrysler's tech support desk. If I
take it back to the dealer they may just want to change out
the instrument cluster again. I was hoping that some clever
moparphile might be able to shed some light on the problem
before I take it back to my dealer.
Any help will be appreciated.
