Default 2005 stalls when idle in gear or ac on no codes

my daughter has a 2005 pt cruiser non turbo. its got 103000 miles. and 12000 on the 3rd dealer installed motor.(the 2nd motor they didn't tighten the cam girdles ) the car stranded her in San Antonio. so I took my trailer and brought it back to Corpus. the ck engine light was on, we ckd codes and it had 17. most were crank sensor related. So I put a new crank sensor and it fired right up!

So I went to drive it and as soon as it warmed up it would die at every light or stop sighn. or by just turning the ac on but now no engine light! and it restarts right away and you can drive off.

she now tells me it was doing that 3 days before it quit completly

I aslo put a new throttle position sensor and cleaned the throttle body and ISC

I also pulled the cover off the cam gears and the belt looks new

Thanks for any help Bobby

found the problem!

where the harness runs around the back of the motor, it was chafed on a transmission bolt. i guess during on of the motor swapes the harness lost a bracket. and let the bolt rub thru friction tape and a large loom and was intermittly grounding a light brown wire with a black stripe. i just taped it re wraped the harness put a new section of loom and made a little standoff bracket.

runs perfect once again
