Hello and welcome to just answer. My name is Chris and I will be assisting you today. I am sorry that you are having this problem but hopefully I can help you out with this. Tell me, when you turn the key on, does the red security indicator (dot) come on for a few seconds and then turn off?

Chris
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Yes it goes out
Expert:  Chris replied 1 month ago.
Ok. Then it is jot a security issue. Can you keep it running by stepping on the throttle a little bit or does it still die?

Chris
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It still dies

It had a code of p0132 it was the 02 sensor
Expert:  Chris replied 1 month ago.
Ok, that should not make it stall. Hmmm, when was the last time the fuel filter was replaced?

Chris

The only fuel filter on a dodge is in the fuel tank on trucks

Expert:  Chris replied 1 month ago.
I was getting ready to ask you to do a fuel pressure and volume test on the fuel lift pump. Glad that took care of this problem and thank you again for using just answer! I will be here for you if you have any follow up questions.
