Does The Odometer On A 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Track Miles While Flat Towing


Does flat towing a 2003 PT CruiserStandard Transmission add miles to the odometer?


Expert Reply:

Since you'll have the engine off there will be no power running to your electronic odometer and thus will not be able to track miles traveled.

If you don't already have all of the equipment to flat tow your vehicle I have the following recommendations for you:

Tow Bar: Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-522. The non-binding design allows you to release your vehicle at any time, anywhere on even or unlevel ground and large hookup radius makes connecting a breeze at any angle, even if your vehicle isn't perfectly lined up with your RV.

Base Plate: Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit # 278-1. The visible portions of the brackets can be removed when you are not towing for clean look.

Tow Bar Wiring: Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267. This diode kit allows you to use your Chrysler PT Cruiser's tail lights and wiring system while preventing feedback from your RV.

Braking System: Brake Buddy Classic 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System # HM39494. Get reliable braking with this lightweight, portable system. Actuator unit applies towed car's brakes after receiving signal via internal inertia sensor. Braking power settings let you adjust brake intensity based on your towed car's weight. The included charge line kit will keep your vehicle's battery charged while you tow.

Safety Cables: RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables # RM-643. The coiled design will prevent the cables from dragging in the ground and being damaged.

You will also most likely need a high/low adapter as well. Since this will require some measuring to find the correct adapter for your needs I have attached our help guide to walk you through these steps.
