Default 2001 cruiser stalls after start

My wife 01 cruiser intermittently stalls after she starts. It starts in the starter position but stalls when key released and return to run position. Does the ignition use a ballest resistor and bypass wire? Maybe a bad relay. I dont know where to start as Im not familier with this car.

I would suggest checking out the SKIM( Sentry Key Imobilizer) and the RKE (Remote Keyless Entry).

Im a new to the pt cruiser. Im a old muscle car guy. I hate all the electronics. Give me a carb and points and I will be happy. Even my Jaguar has small block chevy.
I was thinking the same about immobilizer. What confuses me is that the car starts in cranking position but stalls when key returned to run position. If it was immobilizer would the car even crank over? Where do I find these components and/or relays?

Yes, if the chip is bad or you try to start the car with a door key (without a chip)...the car will run for about 2 seconds than shut off.

My wife lost the other key and door fob at the beach when the tide came in. She left them on a sandbar.
I didnt think this is a chipped key. I will xray it at work tomorrow. If so I will go to dealer and get a new key.
After that I must fix the liftgate. I think the handle broke inside. That will be a pain.
Thanks for all the help. I will post on what I find.

We need a THANKS tab like they use on my Jag forum. Its very convenient.

if the key is thin and black, no chip. if it is thicker and tan, it has a chip. no need to x-ray it.

and you can have it cloned at an acehardware for under $100 if it has a chip.

The dealer will overcharge you for a chipped key , Home Depot cuts and Programs them for $69
