Did you try unplugging the battery cable wait 2 min and reconnect?

I try this if I dont have the necessary tools or parts with me as long as it wont damage anything if I am on the side of the road or hwy.

P0320 - No Crank Reference Signal to PCM
Possible Causes:
1. Crankshaft Sensor signal circuit open or grounded
2. Crankshaft Sensor VREF circuit open or grounded
3. Tone wheel or flex plate damaged or erratic CKP Sensor signals
4. Crankshaft Sensor is damaged or has failed
5. PCM has failed

P1684 Battery Has Been Disconnected
Possible Causes:
1. Quick Learn procedure was performed with scan tool
2. TCM battery direct (B+) circuit is open or disconnected
3. TCM power ground circuit is open
4. PCM/TCM was disconnected or it has been replaced

P1391 Camshaft or Crankshaft Signal Intermittent Condition
Possible causes:
1. Timing belt or chain stretched or jumped
2. Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
3. Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
4. Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection.

I would suggest checking to see if the wire harness is rubbing on the half shaft or rubbing against the chassis.

I got towed to an autozone. I think itís the fuel pump. I donít hear it coming on. Checked fuse and relay. I pushed the shreder valve in on the fuel rail. Very little fuel came out. A few drops. Iím picking up a fuel pump now. But I donít have tools with me to change it.

I have no clue on this but, could one of your faults tell the PCM to kill power to your fuel pump? I'd look at the systems the dtc's are steering you towards before replacing anything. At the very least throw a cam sensor in it. If no luck, box it up and return.

When the camshaft sensor failed on my Pt Cruisers I just unplug and plug the battery cable and I got the Pt Cruisers home to replace the camshaft sensor. Might not work every time but it did it each time the sensor failed on me.

What year is your Pt Cruiser?

The computer has to see signals from the sensors before it would turn on the automatic shutdown relay which powers the ignition coil(s), injectors, and fuel pump.

After replacing the camshaft sensor what diagnostic trouble codes are being triggered? This is important to keep from replacing unnecessary components.

Did you actually spray some starter fluid in the throttle body to see if the engine starts to run?

The fuses!
Does no one check the fuses?
One fuse can cause the symptom

Think of the fuses like children
Look to them first
Does no one think of the children?

Loose the ground on the pump and it will quit.
