I spent many a day and dollar trying to figure that one out. Later, a mechanic friend of mine called a contact at Dodge and found ou that the computer had a know problem with the input connector. This is the connector attached to the computer, not on the wiring harness. Although, there were times that I could move the connector and the check engine fault light would come on. In the end, I had to replace the computer. I just wish Dodge had been honest about this and replaced these for free. It only fails when hot and can fail at any speed. I thought it was a safety issue and that Dodge should fix it, but they won't.

Yep had the same problem with mine. Replaced the computer (poor design by Dodge) and haven't had a problem since. There is a place online that sells reman'd ones for less then $500 and you can replace them yourselves. It's 4 bolts, a wiring harness, and 10 minutes of your time. DO NOT take it to the dealership, they'll charge you and arm and a leg

Does it stall at idle, just after you start up? Does it stall when you give it gas - or take your foot off of the gas? Does it stall at stoplights, stopsigns, etc? Does it stall when the engine is hot or cold or warm? I would love to try and help, but you've gotta give me something to work off of!
