Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Do testing with engine cranking.
Any applicable trouble codes?
Sometimes when battery voltage is lost some modules may have a problem, including your security system, but, you said you have already driven it. Your charging system work ok?

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!

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.

Usually from weak,(small gauge wire) cables , improper hook-up,(backwards) or not connected good. If your vehicle has something stuck on that is drawing lots of power is a possibility too. Match them up + to +, and - to -. Do negative last.
