Default 2004 pt no start

I have a 2004 touring edition PT and two days ago while leaving the store I heard a scraping sound from the front passengers side. After returning home I went to leave later and it would not start. All I get is a whine when the key goes from on to run. I checked the error codes and got P0685 and P0688 going from this is replaced the ASD relay and still have nothing what so ever when the key is turned. Checked the battery and it is good. replaced the starter and battery last month.. I'm lost as to what this could be and really don't need/ can't afford a trip to the dealer.. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Had a similiar problem with my old Town & Country van a while back and it turned out to be a bad negative battery cable clamp. The factory cables are sealed in lead but over time the inside completely corroded. I cut the old clamp off and installed a new brass clamp from the local auto supply and that fixed everything. I was ready to change the starter as well but I had it rebulit not long before this happened and I knew the battery was good. Just wasn't getting current or voltage to the starter. It's worth checking.
