Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many possible causes for the engine dying and it will require some testing to determine what is going on. It could be a sensor issue, wiring, possibly the ASD relay, a loss of fuel pressure, even the powertrain control module itself.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting. Have you read the codes?

The engine is actually dying and you have to pull over and restart it?

this little lightning light comes on and it dies but only when I'm at red light or stopped not while driving if it comes on while driving it just reduces my power
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

P0457 sets when the engine controller perceives that the fuel cap has been left loose. It will require some testing to determine what is wrong but if the cap was not let loose then this is most likely being set by a bad ESIM.

P0430 is a failure of the left bank catalytic converter.

The electronic throttle control light is coming on because of the P0507 and that's most likely related to the engine dying. This code sets when idle speed is higher than commanded. There are quite a few possible causes for this also and it will require some testing to determine what is going on. This could be throttle body itself, a vacuum leak, or the PCV valve.

Well the gas cap is on and not cracked and also my cluster display is showing (gascap) and how can I find out what the actual problem is?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

A scan tool and evaporative emissions leak detection machine would be needed to test the evaporative emissions system.

I do have the scan tool
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I was told it could be the gas pedal sensor so could that be part of it?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

You can run the ESIM monitor then and you should see that the ESIM switch does not close during the procedure. From there though to know for sure what is wrong the system needs to be leak tested and the ESIM wiring tested. That said, if the ESIM switch isn't closing and it's switch state on a scan tool does change when jumping the circuits together then replacing the ESIM should take care of it.

The accelerator pedal position sensor is not a concern.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
