My daughters car did the exact same thing. Lights and all. I replaced the pump twice and both relays (auto shut down and fuel pump relay). Very frustrating indeed.
The 1994 recall (see below) is right on! Right behind the engine block intake (the long aluminum block on top) is a tie rod that connects from the rack and pinion to the wheel. On top of the tie rod is a bundle of wires that are wrapped in cloth style tape, just resting on the rod. As the vehicle is driven, the steering rod will rub the wires (as the wheels are turned) thus causing a possible short. My daughters was. I used liquid tape, wrapped in tape and used zip ties to lift off the rod. I have driven it alot and have not had an incident yet!

timing chains either go out or not go out, there is no such thing as an intermittent problem with a timing chain, what about the ignition module? it is sensitive to heat, and like the crank and cam sensors can cause your kind of problem. U did not mention fuel pressure either, electric fuel pumps can stop from heat when they get near the end of there service life (100,000), this is even more common if the fuel tank is run below 1/4 tank allot, this overheats the pump in the tank because it is not covered in gas, that is how it is cooled.

Your exhaust system may be plugged, check your catalytic converter or muffler. At higher speeds exhaust gasses build up and prevent proper operation and will stall the vehicle until the built up pressure manages to escape enough to facilitate re-starting until once again youre shut down.
Your P.C.M. Power Train control Module (Brain) may also be the culprit as was the case with my 95 intrepid. After replacement of the module all system operations resumed as properly should. Theres two things that may well solve your problem. I hope so, good luck.
You might dare to disconnect your exhaust system above the converter (engine side) and drive your vehicle as usual, if its not too loud, preferably do this test drive outside city limits and see if your problem is resolved. If all seems well then the problem does indeed lie in your exhaust not flowing freely as it should.
