Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have more than one issue going on but if the powertrain control module is losing power due to an ignition switch issue that will cause the dying issue.

There are many things that could cause the engine to die ranging from the PCM not being awake to the crank sensor, coil, ASD relay and wiring, the fuel pump, etc. The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see if any fault codes are setting. Have you checked for codes?
