    Start with the basics, check that the battery connections are clean and tight. It's possible that the auto shutdown (ASD) relay is failing and shutting down the engine. Locate the ASD relay and tap on it or wiggle it when the engine's quit running and see if it helps. That would point to the ASD getting intermittent.

    Hi, I am having what sounds like same problem with my 04 crossfire. Just quits, but cooling fan runs and when cooling fan shuts down car will start and run. What did you figure out problem was? You mentioned a auto shutdown relay. thanks

    I'd like to know whether you got this fixed. I am looking to get a crossfire and anticipating problems like this. Several typical problems show up on the internet, earlier referenced a pulse module, not sure about that. definitely join CrossfireForum.Org , 0. battery voltage has to be high, 1. cheap, lookup crank positioning sensor, also check slk320 problems. 2. cheapest, and more likely, the relay module in the box by the battery, it can be taken apart and checked visibly, resolder the connections in one spot, manufacturing defect, 3 the SKREEM security module, expensive and requires update using factory scanner, 4. the PCM computer, more rarely the problem, and very expensive, requires using the factory scanner at the dealer, sometimes 3&4 there are detailed writeups on these, I got the factory manuals and am reading them cover to cover, I am buying some scanners, might find one that gives the Chrysler codes I need, the factory scanners are too expensive, and you have to have special dealer priveledges to get stuff like the PIN and flashes I also signed up for the Mitchell's online repair manual, many good writeups, including this http://www.justanswer.com/chrysler/613m6-chrysler-crossfi...

    long answer, but there is more
    the factory manuals have detailed pin references where you can check basic electrical problems, short to ground, short to voltage, open, using just a multimeter(with high impedance) for most of the circuits, otherwise you are dependent on the very expensive and proprietary factory testers

    Crossfire must communicate with transmitter in key fob, otherwise will not crank and will die if running. Easy answer; extend key from fob, open key case as shown by arrows under key slot, replace batteries if over 8 years old, if newer simply rub both batteries front and back, and around edges, with fingers (to remove invisible film) and reinstall batteries, both with plus side up. Has fixed "will not crank" and "dies suddenly" problems every time on local crossfires.
