SOURCE: 2002 pt cruiser Camshaft Sensor
change the crankshaft positon sensor in the rear of the engine above the oilfilter. Also check the wiring to this sensor, they have a problem shorting out. You have to change the camshaft and crankshaft sensors at the same time. Make sure you give your car a major tune up. Did you check yor starter?.........runjoe

Hello, First, you have to clear some of the Codes with a scanner or wait after 25-35 start-ups for the information to cycle out of the system.
Next, make sure you have replaced the correct Bank or lower or upper sensor when there can be 4 sensors on the exhaust.
The wiring running to your sensors may be bad. Also, if anyone has fooled with the wiring to the sensors, some have cooling tubes which are embedded in the wiring. Sometimes people rewire the connectors to fit different O2 sensor plug-ins and the cooling tube is cut. When these plug-ins are manipulated this way the sensors overheat.
I can't say offhand about how your PT cruiser has its wires configured into junction connectors. They may be replaceable junctions or may be moulded into the housing of the O2 control unit as 1 piece.
You will need to ask at an Autoparts store or go to a Salvage yard and try to find a harness you can use. It is not impossible that the sensors you purchased could be bad. You should be able to get some sort of continuity value from the prong connectors on the O2 sensors to see if you have a circuit in the part.
I hope my solution is helpful, perhaps a Chrysler mechanic will answer you.
