PO442 means you have a small leak in your EVAP system. Most common cause is a bad gas cap, replace the gas cap with a factory gas cap,after market fail or does not conform to the OEM EVAP system. Other cause would be small leaks in the EVAP vacuum lines. P0445 is also related to the EVAP system and has detected a large leak in the system. Start with the gas cap as mentioned above. P1685 Is an issue with the ignition not recognizing the ignition keys and the car's ignition immobilizer my activate leaving the car not being able to start. That's going to have to be a Dealer repair. Good luck and hope this helps.

I had the same problem with my 1999 Chrysler Sebring 2.5L V6 Convertable. It started stalling at intersections; would lose RPMs' and die while driving it; and would not start unless it sat for a few minutes. Once it started, you'd have the scenario start all over again...
I hadn't kept up my maintenance schedule like I usually do, so I did the usual; I replaced my spark plugs and wires, changed the oil and filters, ect...
Finally, after it doing the same thing and wasting a ton of time and frustration on the side of the road, I took it to a mechanic that put it on his $9,000 diagnostic machine. The verdict; CRANK SHAFT POSITION SENSOR!
The Haynes Manual will tell you wrong on its location for the 1999 Lxi 2.5L V6 convertable; it is NOT LOCATED BEHIND THE BATTERY TRAY. The crankshaft position sensor is actually located about 4 to 6 inches below the distributor, which is about dead center of the motor, on the transaxle housing.
You do have to take off the tire and the skirt cover to get to it. I had to purchase two long socket extensions just to get to the bolt that mounts the sensor to the transaxle housing; but it was well worth the 20 bucks...
All in all, it took me three hours to find the damn thing, and then to figure out what I needed to take the old one off and get the new one installed.
The $65 dollars that I spent to find out what the problem was is worth it....
Now, the car runs better than ever....

why do you want your rpms higher while idling? you don't want them high because your gas bill will reflect that. slow shouldn't matter but if it's dying while on idle it could either be your mass air flow sensor or your fuel filter being clogged
