Check all the connections on the cables. Not just the one on the battery. There should be a big ground on the driver send inner finder behind the filter box. Clean all the connections all the way to the end of both wires. If that doesn't work. Tap the starter on the side while someone turns the key. If that works you need a starter.

Will try all that and see. Do not understand why driver window goes down when trying to start, wipers sometimes make one cycle or radio turns on, all when trying to start. What are the little 1inch boxes on fire wall, dr side up high. They click repeadly when holding key to start?

These cars do weird things on low voltage. A bad ground can cause this condition. But the computer is a possibility.

On convertibles, the drivers widow goes down an inch to allow the door to close (open ??) without pinching/pulling on the rag top. The top overlaps the window and going down an inch or two allows the door to open/close smoothly. That how it works on some cars and probably the PT. Why your is doing it at the present time might have something to do with the switch/sensor seeing a signal from the ignition switch.

I've heard of owners resetting the computer to fix that problem. Take off the negative battery cable off for about 5 minutes.

Did the person putting the new battery in clean everything? Take Busted's advise and check on the connections.
