Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that can cause the engine to die and it will require some testing to determine exactly what is going on. If there are truly no related fault codes set then data will most likely need to be monitored at the time the problem is happening to determine what is happening. It could be an electrical issue, a fuel system issue, or it could be transmission related.

How are you checking for fault codes?

My truck will turn off if it does only a couple of minutes after I initially started probably about 1 to 2 minutes after I start it when it shuts off it is as if I just turn the key off no struggling no choking the engine or the throttle as if it was starving for fuel it isn't the transmission I know it's the transmission was to stop the engine how that would feel it drag and then It stops there are no check engine light what do you think

It looks like you should be able to read codes from the ABS module, correct? What codes are set there?

There are none
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 10 months ago
There is at least a C121c in the ABS module if the engine is dying.Does it restart immediately after dying?
Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
There is no code at all and when it goes off it shuts off immediately no stalling just a real quick shut off and yes it dose start right back up
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 10 months ago

It's not possible for it to die without driving without setting a C121c in the ABS module. Your code reader isn't able to see it, common with generic code readers.

There are many things that could be going on and it's going to require monitoring data with an actual scan tool to begin diagnosing it. The PCM may be going down due to internal failure or a loss of power or ground, a short to ground on a reference voltage circuit or a short to voltage on a sensor ground circuit. If it were a fuel system issue such as poor fuel delivery it shouldn't die abruptly as you're describing. A loss of cam or crank signal also shouldn't cause the engine to die, just an engine light, long crank time and lowered rev limiter.
