Hi guys .
I wonder if anyone can help with our PT electrical issue .
Starts and drives fine however :
No Speedo , Tacho or Fuel or Temperature guage
Radio is fine however no display
Headlights , tail lights , indicators and brake lights all work .
No central locking .
NRMA spent nearly two hours and could not fine a fuse for the instruments .
I am thinking that it maybe in the TIPM .
Any clues ?

Surprised the NRMA looked at it. It's not a breakdown!
Speak to Allan at Bleam.

Hey Dennis,

I've had a look in my workshop manual (albeit 2003 model),
it does mention a fuse "M1" in the Power Control Centre (the fuse box under the bonnet).
This apparently controls the entire instrument cluster, and maybe radio display as well.

Good luck.

Thanks Steve.
NRMA checked every fuse in the box , but no faulty ones .
I called Alan at Bleam on Friday and explained the faults , and he was very confident that it is the TIPM , which is the Totally Integrated Power Module .
He said they were a common problem with o5 and 06 models however were rectified in 07 .
Avi from A&J is going to speak to his Auto Elec on Monday and try to arrange for him to look at it , and then replace it for me .
Alan was very confident that it was the problem , and he has sold many of them .Thanks for your help .
Keep you posted .

I'd say you'd be pretty safe with Allan's suggestion.
I felt it may have been that but just wanted you to tell Allan all the issues so it would be better for him to confirm.
Recently I was up at Allan's and I took a interstate call with a non Member requiring assistance so I handed my phone to Allan and nearly had the opportunity to deliver that TIPM but he had the part delivered to ACT nearly before I got back home myself.
If you google the PT Cruiser TIPM it will list nearly if not all your issues.
I am flying up there on this coming Friday and returning Monday b4 our Tuesday meeting....though I think we are on a weight limit with our carry on flight luggage!
