Chrysler Repair/2000 Chrysler Sebring Jxi convertible


QUESTION: driving approx. 55-60mph, rpm needle jumps and car jerks or surges like it's trying to accelerate then acts normal, get codes from auto zone, advanced auto and O' Reilly's, no one will tell me with certainty if this year make and model 2000 Chrysler Sebring Jxi convertible, 24 valve, 2.? L 6 cylinder has a camshaft or crankshaft sensor or where it is located ' near the engine'  and if this will drain the battery or alternator. Car won't start after shutting off have to jump it, after jumping and putting the car in reverse the electrical  system went haywire-blinking off and on. Driving between 35-45 mph dashboard goes dark feels like no acceleration make it to destination car shuts off, does not start again. Is this a single process of elimination issue or a multi part issue?
Thank you for any explanation to make sense of it all.

ANSWER: what are the codes?

---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: The codes are P0300 and P1391. I understand that the car was only running on battery,altenator is not powering or charging like it is supposed to. So I was also told. All I know it went on the blink now it's dead.

ok  also haft to clear something up  the 2000  has a 2.5 engine  and an 01 has a 2.7  which is it  they are 2 complexly different engines.
As for the alternator issue  that will need to be corrected first  if its not charging the battery up  it will no allow the engine to start unless you hook it up to jumper cables for power to run the engine.
