    When i updated my site and added SSL to it i didn't do enough researchto know i had to redirect my http:// with a 301 redirection to https://

    Some website now are indexed in google with https that have 0 PR.

    Because i don't handle private information for now i decided to deactivate the SSL before installing it again in the future.

    I redirected every https:// that is indexed in google to it's original url with pagerank.
    Does this fix my ranking problems?

    If it ain't broke don't fix it. Did you 301 http:// to https:// in the first place? If not, I don't find any reason to redirect indexed https:// to http://. Whatever the case, remove all the redirects and let your site index settle down like how it was before. You can also try pinging all old http:// urls and upload the new sitemap to GWMT.
