The car stalled while I was driving home from work and would not restart. The battery is still strong. Did the key test and where you turn the key and it shows code p0600.
Do you
have the same problem?

Thank you. Out of curiosity and just in case my eye site deceived me, would code 0500 have same symptoms? A friend is bringing diagnostic tool tonight, however was trying to gain as much knowledge as possible. Boy I miss my 1969 Buick LeSabre now.

No, the 500 is for a speedometer that is not working. The engine will not shut off or stall with that code.

Yep, me too. They were simplicity at its best.

Okay, when I turned key on off not hitting odometer button code said p0320. When I did it with button in it read 05-00. I know I am a pain. But so appreciative of you. Thanks to Roy for his patience.

Okay, you need to resolve the 600 code first. That may very well resolve all other codes. If the PCM has failed, it will effect many systems.

Okay. When I turned key on off not hitting odometer button code said p0320. When I did it with odometer button in it read 05-00, then went through 000000 999999. I know I am a pain. Had to put my glasses on to see it. So no p before that 05-00. Temporary dingbat mode, lol. So appreciative of you. Thanks to Roy for his patience. Will post picture of 05-00 reading. And what is p0320?

Okay, the 320 is most likely a crank sensor failure. Common issue. That would explain why it stalled.

Roy

Symptom:
P0320-No crank reference signal AT PCM

When monitored:
With the ignition in either the start or run position and battery voltage between 4-15 volts.

Set condition:
No signal from the crankshaft position sensor is present when engine vacuum is present or cam signals are present.

Possible causes:
- CKP signal circuit shorted to voltage
- 8 volt supply circuit open
- 8 volt supply circuit shorted to ground
- 8 volt supply circuit shorted to CKP signal circuit
- PCM (8 volt supply)
- Sensor ground circuit open
- CKP signal circuit
- Irregular lab scope pattern of CKP signal
- Stray signal from the camshaft position sensor
- Wiring harness intermittent
- CKP signal circuit shorted to ground
- CKP signal circuit open
- CKP Signal circuit shorted to sensor ground circuit
- Powertrain control module (CKP signal circuit)

Removal:
1. Remove the air cleaner lid, disconnect the inlet air temperature sensor and makeup air hose.
2. Remove the negative battery cable.
3. Raise the vehicle and support.
4. Disconnect electrical connector from crankshaft position sensor.
5. Remove sensor mounting screw. Remove sensor.

Installation:
1. Install sensor and tighten the screw to 13 Nm (115 15 in. Lbs.).
2. Connect electrical connector to crankshaft position sensor.
3. Lower vehicle.
4. Install the negative battery cable.
5. Install the air cleaner lid, connect the inlet air temperature sensor and makeup air hose.
