Lots of older posts to get you started. The only thing I'll add is that I hope you used genuine MOPAR sensors as the PT doesn't like the cheaper aftermarket sensors. They either don't work at all or don't last very long because of inferior, interior parts. They may look the same but aren't. Now, here's some of the other threads on starting problems.

Cam sensor connector an Coil connector aren't mixed up?

like alread said byuptown if everything is hooked up the correct way it has to some how be related to the timing like 1 tooth off or 180 out
