You have not mentioned whether you do a OBD fault code test on this, if not do that and post the results. Also jumper the fuel pump relay socket under the hood so it stays on all the time, you could have a defective starter switch, in this scenario the fuel pump is powered up as long as the engine is cranking, but as soon as the key is released to run position it shuts off.
A ground wire that is not grounding, until you wiggle the wires. Follow those wires, there is a loose connection in there. Start at the neg. battery post, clean and tighten. Follow the small wires you can wiggle, see any splices that may have started to pull apart? Find the ground screw or whatever the small wires use to ground, that may be loose. Maybe the small wire goes to that black box? Take it off and look for the ground that isn't grounding.
If the belt is loose, it would slip and not provide enough power through the alternator to power the car. Check for excessive slack in the belt. It's common for new belts to develop some slack after initial use.
The key has to be relearned,if you do not have the soft wear,then the dealer will have to do it,the relearn process has to be programmed to the computer,If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.
are you using the original key for the car because it sounds like a theft system problem I had a 2000 jeep that did the same thing it would start for a bit and then quit on me found out that the key has a chip in it so the key i got cut works for the lockes but cant use to run the car
