Got it. The cam sensor can cause that but how did you arrive at that conclusion? The crankshaft position sensor is also involved. If the timing belt jumps two teeth, the Engine Computer will shut the engine down to protect the valves. It does that by turning off the automatic shutdown relay. That removes the voltage to the ignition coil pack, injectors, and a few other things.
There should be a diagnostic fault code related to which sensor has failed or if the two are out of sync. Chrysler makes getting those codes real easy. Cycle the ignition switch from "off" to "run" three times within five seconds without ever cranking the engine, then watch for the codes to display in the odometer. Holler back with those codes.
