Unfortuneately the issue u have has a multitude of possibilities that would need to be monitored by a capable tech while driving the vehicle...best suggestion is to have the vehicle diagnosed by a reputable repair facility so that u don't go thru the hassle of replacing multiple parts before finding the culprit. newer vehicles have a array of wiring and electrical parts that may fail out of no where and intermittently. sorry but this is the best help i can offer today

I have a 1996 JXI, too, and had the same problem. It was a defective sensor. Unfortunately, it could have been any one of several so the mechanic had to keep the car, reset the codes and drive it around for a while each day until the event happened. Then he switched out the sensor and now all is well. It cost about $165.00.

I had the same problem a couple of years back. I brought it to the dealer, and they said it was the "crank shaft sensor." The dealer cost around 350 or so. Clearly the majority of the cost was for labor.

I had the same problem on my 99 sebring jxi it was the cranksensor . The part cost around $80 at autozone and was a very easy driveway swap. One screw and one electrical connector. Just make sure you leave the little piece of material on the end of the sensor, it gives the correct spacing when installing and will wear away on its own.
