Question about Dodge Ram
SOURCE: ECM SHUTS DOWN
I have seen so few ECM that cause your symptoms, do you know what you are loosing when it "shuts down" spark, ignition, fuel pump 5 volt ref? If I was sorking on it Id have to check all the ECM grounds there are several, and make sure all the incoming powers are constant and keep equipment hooked up and check to see what is missing when it acts up.
Please let me know how it goes so I can recommend net next course of diagnostics follow-up at

I would recommend having the ignition module tested. I have had one of these vehicles with the same problem and that is what fixed it.

SOURCE: ECM plug
it sounds like you have already located the problem, now you need to do something about it. Likely, by being partially unplugged, moisture and other bad stuff has gotten into the ecm connector. You need to carefully inspect all prongs and prong receivers for oxidation, dirt and burning. Make sure there is no problem with wires themselves where they are attached to the prongs. Once clean and securely plugged in you should be fine.
