First, welcome to the forum from the great sovereign state of Arkansas!

You should tell us more about yourself and your PT in the New Members section.

What's likely happened is that you have blown a fuse and when you hook the two wires together, one is hot and the other is on the circuit with the blown fuse. So hooking them together back-feeds power into that circuit. I'm betting you are connecting wire #5 to either wire #6 or #7 to get the effect you are reporting.

First, are you using an adapter plug or have you cut off the factory plugs? The 2001 PT is unique in that it's the only year model of the PT to use the two plugs for the stereo. In 2002, Chrysler went to the larger single plug setup.

Here's a pin out for those plugs:

You will need to check for a blown fuse too. My guess would be fuse #10.
