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!!
