You need to check your wiring harness to the fuel pump. Sounds to me like you have a wire that is shorting out and popping the fuses. Trace each wire, one at a time and look for any cracks or insulation that's rubbed off.

P2302 code. This code is for coil #1 Insufficient Ionization. This is a very common code on Chrysler vehicles. On this Chrysler style ignition system the Automatic Shutdown relay supplies battery power to the positive side of the coil. The voltage flows through the primary windings of the coil out the coil negative terminal back to the PCM. The PCM is the ignition module and responsible for primary triggering. This code sets when the PCM does not see proper primary events.

You might want to double check the connector for coil #1 that the coil connector plugs into. I had another member that found that connector was bad, went to a junk yard and found another one to replace it. It fixed the problem.

Has your timing belt been replaced on this PT Cruiser? The camshaft and crankshaft error in degrees is another area to look at that might be causing the P2302.

Please post what you find out.

Since you're saying that the cam sensor is broken, be sure to check the magnet behind it. It it's broken, that COULD be the problem and not your fuel pump at all.
