Question Intermitant Motor shut off

I have a 94 Dodge Ram 2500, 2WD with a 5.2. Recently I notice that if I take a hard right the motor shuts off. I was at a roll and I put it in neutral and started it back up no problem. but it's only on right turns. it doesn't sputter out it just cuts out completely. any Ideas?

check the connector thats under the truck on the right side just behind the wheel well cover its a multy pin connector that goes into the cab. if my guess is right this is the pcm connection. look for dirt, loose wire, corrosion. not to say this is the prob but its a good place to look. bad place for a plug. hope it helps, good luck. let me know how it works out.
