Default 2005 2.4 Turbo stalls sets code P2305

My daughters 2005 Pt Cruiser Convertible Touring Edition has the 2.4 Turbo engine and automatic trans with 92000 miles on it. Two weeks ago it stalled on her and restarted fine and check engine light came on and stayed on. I was able to pull code #P2305 with my code reader. Alldata info was check plug wires and plugs for cracks or carbon tracking. I installed new Autolite wires and Platinum plugs and cleared codes. I noticed her car was turning over slow and I load tested the battery and it failed. I replaced the battery and sent her back out into the world. It ran great for two weeks no problems and yesterday it cut off twice. She said one time the rpm's shot up to 4500 for an instance and dropped back to normal. When it cuts off it will start back up no problem. It cut off once at traffic light and twice driving down the road. It is not setting any codes this time and check engine light did not come on. Any idea's where to look would be appreciated.

Your not alone. Read this and see if it helps:

Ignition coil problem...maybe?

Ok I will try a coil capacitor. It must be a dealer item as I can't find it on local auto parts store sites. Below are possible causes for setting code P2305 from a pay site. I'm assuming that if this capacitor quits it kills the coil.

Engine Running.

If PCM detects that the secondary ignition burn time is incorrect or not present an error is detected. One Trip Fault


* Intermittent condition
* Spark plug
* Ignition wire
* Ignition coil operation
* Ignition coil control circuit open
* coil control circuit shorted to ground
* (A142) ASD relay output circuit
* Ignition coil

After my last post the PT Cruiser finally set a code after stalling for the Crankshaft sensor. I replaced it 3 weeks ago and it it is still running great with no stalling out. Thanks for your help.
