Can you keep it running if you give it a little gas? If so, you need to start by cleaning out the throttle body and IAC motor and passage.

when it dies it is instant. its not a spuder. but if you give it throttle and let off it dies, it shuts off as if you were to turn the key.

first thing that popped into my head was maybe you might be hitting the key with the knee. if not that my cherokee did that and ended up being a crank position sensor. do these rams have these?
