Default 2002 sebring convertible 2.7L engine starts, dies immediately

2002 Sebring convertible 2.7 L 140.000 miles. After stopping at a stop sign the car died. Trying to start it it starts but dies immediately. After a few times it does not even do that unless you pull the start/fuel fuse. First thought was fuel pump, but it runs fine.
What could it be?

1. Does it have a grey key or a black key? Grey key has the anti-theft system. If that's screwed up, it will start, but run only for 2-3 seconds and shut off. Fixing that will require a trip to the dealer.

2. Possibly plugged fuel filter. The fuel pump operates but if the filter is clogged, it won't move fuel. Unfortunately, that requires dropping the fuel tank to get access to.

Are there any codes stored in the computer? Try the "key dance" to see if anything comes up. Without turning to "start", turn the key from "off" to "on" to "off" to "on" to "off" to "on". If there are codes stored, they will come up in the odometer space on the dash. Go from there.

It is original grey key, 1 owner car.
I am about to run diagnostics.
Dropped fuel tank, filer had dark colored fuel coming out, but it was not hard to blow it out. Filter is not in stock in most stores..... it is the PR 327

Fuel tank is removed from vehicle for fuel pump / filter check. So this one is logic.

Yeah, that code is probably not related to the stalling problem.

Is there a good way to check the filter?

Not that I know, other than to check the fuel pressure/flow when it's assembled. And they don't make that easy since there's no pressure port.

Have you checked for spark?
