Default 2001 PT dies and won't start

I have a 2001 PT and when I got it the engine was overheated severely. I pulled the motor and rebuilt it. Then put it back in and hooked everything up. It would not start and I figured out that I plugged the coil plug into the cam sensor and the cam sensor into the coil. It damaged the PCM and I got a reman from Dodge dealer. I installed that and it fired up and seemed to run fine. I drove it for a day or two and started having it die when I would come to a stop. It would restart if I turned the key off but not if I just turned the key from on to start. The problems started getting worse over the next two weeks, it would cut out as i drove down the rode and would get harder to start. I checked it for codes and there is 6 or 7 of them and they are all open circuit codes. the ones i pulled out today are P0403, P1389, P1489, P1595, P1282, P1388, P1490, P0645.
I cleaned the grounds on the drivers side inner fender and didn't help. Today It will not even start.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have 60 psi fuel pressure. After it dies, if I leave the key on and pop the hood I can hear relays and the fan come on and off.

Not sure if this helps but read somewhere that oil pressure need to be at least 4 PSI before allowing engine to start. Again not sure where and how long ago.

Thanks, I have checked with my scanner that I am getting oil pressure while it is cranking.

No more ideas of what it might be?
