Default 2004 PT won't start.

Battery taken in and checked good. Replaced starter, Replaced Cam Position Sensor, Checked all wires and relays, have power to all applicable power points and all wires ring good. Checked fusible link, good. Bought a replacement PCM, immobiliser and ignition switch with key, installed all at the same time and still nothing! Reinstalled all original components and bought a new coded key, no help! I have no fault codes when doing the three switch code check. I get all other electrical. The red light on the console comes on when key is turned, goes out and then comes on steady. It won't turn over at all! I tried jumping the starter relay and it will give one quick crank then nothing. It's as if there is a problem with the security, but the new PCM, immobilizer, ignition switch and key should have overcome this. Any ideas? Would a crank position sensor cause this to happen? I would think that would throw a code? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Did you check the wiring from the cam sensor to the PCM?

I would love to, but the wiring diagrams are so bad I have no idea where they go. Do you know where I can find a good wiring diagram? I have the manual, but it is horrible!
