Question about Chevrolet Suburban 1500
Ignition switch is more than likely bad. The start terminal evidently has power, however the RUN terminal does not. Check wiring connectors and ignition switch. When you release the key it goes to the run position so that is where the problem lies. Go to Chevrolet.com and then parts/manuals and look for your switch location. Autozone also has diagrams available.

If any codes buy or borrow a reader --when it dies test and check for fuel --test and check relay --what is the oil pressure no pressure bad sensor will shut you down --fuel filter--egr --catalytic converter-throttle body sensors-throttle body itself ---these are some of the reasons that your truck can act as it does so you will need a code reader multi meter--pressure readers -to test and determine your problem

I checked all of the fuseable links and they were all good. Next I decided to check all the power wires to the ECM and also the grounds from a wiring diagram because the Mil is controlled by the ecm and the bulb was good. The ecm is located behind the glove box. Bingo, the orange wire was only reading 3-5 volts at the ECM, but 12.5 volts after the fuseable link at the underhood fuse block (passenger side firewall). I ran a temp wire directly from after the fuseable link to the orange wire at the ecm and the ecm turned back on and the Mil or "check engine soon" light came on too. The truck started up and has never run smoother.
Note that at first the truck just stalled out and I could restart it right away with no error codes. Eventually the stalling became more frequent with longer reset times required. Once it threw a "code 54" and I thought it was fuel related as each time the gas stopped and I could still start the truck with gas poured into the TB. Ignition ok. My fuel pump turned on and ran if I tested it. I even checked the pressure regulator and the fuel filter to no avail.The orange wire that powers up the ecm is technically part or the fuel pump relay circuit as it also feeds the fuel pump relay 12.5 volts all the time. The thin orange wire from the fuse block is joined to two other thin orange wires in the large group of wires that heads to the ecm along the firewall behind the engine. I had to dig it out of the many wires to find it and remove a lot of tape. It is amazing to me that this one little orange wire could cause so much grief and be so hard to track down. I could not have afforded to take this problem to the Dealer.

If hall effect switch was bad you wouldn't get any spark.What year 2.5L is this?Is this a 2 injector Throttle Body? The pink wire on top of injectors comes thru a 20Amp fuse controlled by the Ignition switch you should have battery voltage with key on The dark green and dark blue wires come from the pcm which are called injector drivers the drivers supply a pulsating ground if you crank the engine with a test light between either pink/dk green or pink/dk blue test light should flash dimmlythat would mean injectors are being driven but there isn't any fuel at the injector or the injectors are bad no pulse means either a bad computer ( which these drivers are known for going bad)or the computer isn't being commanded to fire the injectors.

Been there before!!!! usually it turns out to be something really dumb that makes you say "Why didn't I look at that first???" (either while you are smacking yourself in the head , or, just after!!!!)
Good luck again!!!
