Default PT Cruiser died no fuel and won't crank!

I have a 2005 PT Cruiser GT Convertible with the 2.4L HO motor. My wife and I were driving thru town and we slowed down the engine died and we pulled over to the curb. I tried to re-start it thinking it just stalled but it won't crank and it's not getting fuel. it has a full tank of fuel. We have plenty of electicity as the battery is only 6 months old. We tried to jump start it and that didn't work. Could it be the decelerate fuel cut-off relay or just a bad fuel pump? The engine will not crank! Thanks for any help you can give me.

listen under the car and see if you can hear the fuel pump prime when you cycle the key

do the headlights work?

how many miles?

what is the condition of the battery cables? mine corroded in half by the starter

does it click like a low battery when you try to crank it?

turn the key on off on off on and read the codes it displays in the odometer

let us know what you find.

If it won't crank over at all, many owners have had problems with the ignition switch.

Here are the codes that come when I cycle the key. FL007 EE 14 BL 01 It doesn't prime the fuel pump and will not click when you try to start it. I only have 38,000 miles on it the cables are in good shape. Tried resetting the ECU by holding in the trip reset button and turning the ignition to the run position. It still won't start. Thanks.

How did you get that code? That code looked familiar so i looked it up and that is the software version of the PCM. It usually shows when doing the instrument panel self test.

Ray's right, they aren't the fault codes only software codes. It means you didn't do the "key trick" correctly. Try again.

How to retrieve fault codes.

Okay, looks like I didn't do it enough times. I think I only did it 2 times before I left it in the on position. I'll try it again tomorrow. Thanks for all the input!

Tried the key trick today no codes appeared. But the airbag light stays lit does this mean it thinks the airbags deployed when they didn't actually deploy. Could the deceleration fuel cut-off relay have quit and caused the fuel pump to not work? Any ideas would help. Thanks
