Here are what the codes mean:

PO1698 - No messages received from the electronic transmission control module or the Aisin transmission controller.

PO601 - Internal computer error!

PO500 - Have not heard from the speed sensor lately.

I would start by having the vehicle speed sensor replaced. It is much cheaper than the control module and chances are it is the problem.

Let me know what you find.

I have the same problem with my 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser and then I replaced the vehicle speed sensor in the transmission and everything works great once again! Cost me $39.00 for the part.

I also have an 2001 Pt Cruiser, we rebuild the motor and now it will not shift out of first gear and overheats immediately! Please help! I have put a lot of money in this car and I am not willing to just throw it away.

It sounds like you have too different problem here can you post a new question for the over heating this will keep the subject matter clean. As far as the not shifting when you installed the engine was the torque converter all the way back? Here is a video to help you see what I am talking about:
