Could be many things. Crank Position Sensor, Fuel Pump, Map sensor. Chryslers also have an Auto Shutdown Relay that the computer may activate. I would have the codes checked that are giving you the check engine light. Many autoparts stores like Advanced Auto, or Auto Zone will do it for free.

I have a 04 PT cruiser and it stalled out on me and would not crank....my son replaced a 30 amp fuse on the file close to the dash under the hood and it cranked right up
