try haviing your alternator checked advance auto parts can check it while its on the car and the can check the battery too. if thats not it it may stall due to a loose battery connection or a loose ground strap. if it stalls and everything turns of (electrical) it may be a connection or ground strap.

SORRY but you have a very typical dodge problem.dodges are VERY well known for these little and big wiring problems.you can find an electrical expert thats highly recomended or the dealer.if you don't fix it well,my grandads had some small problems fuel hand radio insturment panel would all stop working some times and some times work fine,then one day it burned the whole harness inside truck and under hood then it really cost a pretty penny.hope you get her fixed..

Check the sensors on the throttle body. There is a sensor that controls air to fuel ratio. If that sensor is bad then the car will run and then stall out while in drive. I had the same problem when it was cold outside last winter. If you dont want to dish out the money without knowing if it is that part at fault or not then start the van pop the hood and located the throttle body. Place your hand on the sensors and give them a little shake and then make sure they are plugged in all the way. You could also turn the van off and unhook the sensor clean the connectors and plug it back in. That should do the trick and if it doesnt stall anymore then I would replace those sensors if I was you. One more thing. If your giving the sensors a tug while the car is running and you hear it going to stall you could located the gas pedal cable and give it a rev or two by hand so it doesnt stall out and turn off. By the way. You van isnt over heating at all is it?

mcdevito75 Here, It"s possible the ignition Module is going bad, no way to test and if so, one day the car will not start at all.----------It can also be a vapor loc, wher the fuel is evaporating before it reaches the cylinders. Best Bet, have your local shop check both these items.

mcdevito75 here, It could be the air idle valve or motor, Best Bet while that check engine light is on, have your auto repair shop take a scan of your vehicles computer and sensors.
