Nowadays when you flip a switch or press a button, it just sends a request signal to a module telling it to do something. Ignition switch just shows STATE of position and doesn't actually send current anywhere.
what are you referring to when you talk about the IPM?

The fuse box under the hood.

Default 2005 PT Cruiser won't start/ doesn't crank

I have an 05 pt cruiser that won't crank it doesn't even make a sound like the starter is trying to engage. I checked all the fuses and relays they all checked good. I was told that it could be the neutral safety switch but I don't know where it is at, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Earlier PTs had what you call a Power Disrtibution Center. When they went to CAN BUS in 05/06, they incorporated a TIPM, which is IPM and Front Control Module combined into one unit. An IPM can be unplugged and replaced, a PDC usually comes empty or it is included in the wiring harness. The earlier ones also had a fuse box on the inside, the newer ones do not.

What are you trying to fix?

I have a 05 pt that won't start all the lights come on just won't crank. A family friend who use to be a mechanic said it could be a neutral safety switch which i then called autozone and they said that the 05 pt no longer has a neutral safety switch but rather a transmition range sensor that does the same job.

2005 PT Cruiser 2.4L non-turbo 5 speed standard. I drove it to work, it ran fine. I got in it to go to lunch and it won't crank. I hear the fuel pump presure up and the lights are good, but it will not tun over. I can jump from battery + to the starter solenoid, it will crank, but will not start. Turned the key to the run position jumped from battery + to solenoid, it will crank, but will not start. I replaced the ignition switch, no change.
1) How do I pull the codes?
2) Will a defective cam or crank sensor cause an engine not to crank?

Thanks

2005Cruiser. I am having the exact same problem what ended up being the final solution to your problem?
