Default Re: 01 PT Cruiser fires up but dies

First thing to try - disconnect the negative cable and then press and hold the break peddle down with the key on for about a minute. Then reconnect the cable and see if the car starts normally.

If that doesn't work, I'd be thinking about a bad fuel pump. What you described as the symptoms sound a lot like a bad fuel pump. Luckily, the 2001 PT has a Schrader valve on the end of the fuel rail where you can check fuel pressure. But that doesn't usually have anything to do with changing out a weak battery. So I'd look for something else first. Do you have any trouble codes?
