WHILE DRIVING THE CAR JUST SHUT OFF

2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser • 104,000 miles

Lights radio everything power works. When I plugged a scanner into it the scanner acting as if it wasnt even plugged into it. I thought the scanner was bad so I plugged it into my truck and it worked just fine. I retried to use the scanner on the pt and it still acts as if I did not plug it in. The scanner keeps ststing that I must plug into car for reading. Ugh

Check wiring harness at PCM to make sure nothing is loose. Check power distribution box under hood for loose connections or bad fuses. Check to make sure battery terminals are clean, tight, and the main ground to the engine block is the same.

I tried everything suggested and still no luck

There has to be a break between the PCM and where the scanner plugs in, unless the PCM is bad.
