Default car stalling.

I have a 03 turbo cruiser. It is stalling and wont start. I actually have to raise the hood and pull the positive battery cable off and put it back on after a few seconds. The car then starts up and runs for a little ways and stalls again. The cam sensor and the crankshaft sensor have been replaced. What could be the problem. It stalled on me 6 times before i got it home.

What engine trouble codes are you getting?
Are the cam sensor and the crankshaft sensor Mopar or aftermarket brand?
Is there a red dot light that comes on on the dash board?
Anything been done to your PT Cruiser recently before replacing sensors?

Codes P0201, P0202, P0203, P0204, P0480, P1681, P0622. And I dint think they were mopar parts. And the only other work done to it was replacing the battery.

I would suggest checking the voltage at the battery. You should be getting around 12 to 12.5 volts not running and 14 to 14.5 volts running. If you are not getting 14 to 14.5 volts you need to check your battery cables. Make sure they are clean and tighten down on both ends. If that is not the problem check your alternator wires. Make sure there are no loose wires going to the alternator. Check the wire from the PCM to the alternator and make sure its connected and making contact. If that is okay check all ground wires. If that is okay then check out the alternator.
Your engine trouble codes indicate possible poor electrical connections.
Before you replaced the battery did someone jump start your PT Cruiser?
How many miles does the PT Cruiser have on it?
Any time you replace sensors you replace one at a time and if it doesn't solve the problem you put the original one back in it. If you start replacing more than one sensor at a time you will not know if the new sensors is good or bad and you will have more problems then you started off with. Aftermarket sensors are known to not work well so its better to use Mopar sensors.
