Sounds like the PCM is bad...P0601 CHRYSLER - Power Control Module Internal Fault... Possible causes; Faulty Powertrain Control Module (PCM), Powertrain Control Module (PCM) harness is open or shorted, Powertrain Control Module (PCM) cicuit poor electricl connection, Low battery voltage...The P0601 is a common code with Chrysler vehicles and the most common problem is the PCM. Erasing the codes may temporary fix the problem which you know it don't.

I don't think it's your pcm you have bad electrical connections, some where take your car to a good smog tec, here's a phone number,this guy is good 1_626_307_5771 and ask for donald.
