Check the fuel shutoff solenoid. It has to keep the fuel open to the injectors. It has two coils in it, one is always on,(small) the other, pulls the solenoid in to the hold position, only when key is in start position. (large). If the small coil is bad or it does not have voltage, the engine dies when key is released from the start position. Check the solenoid for voltage when key is on, and if it has voltage, replace the solenoid. If no voltage, look for the relay that powers it.
