Temperature gage stay low below 50c even new termostate being replaced.

a couple weeks ago i drove to town (2 miles) and my stratus died as i entered my driveway and would not start. it would turn over but not fire. did fuel system check and all was good there. check engine light was on, so i had 2 friends with different scan tools come over to check it out and neither tool would read the code. at that point (out of curriosity) i tried to start it and it fired up and ran great, after about 20 min. it started misfiring, wouldn't gain rpm but would idle, then just die and not start untill it had cooled off. i replaced the plugs, wires, and the ignition coil pack today. it fired right up, ran great (again for only about 20 min.) started thinking that it might be plugged up cat. converter so i went to pull it in my shop to pull the exhaust off, it started right up but now it only has spark on cylinders, 1 & 4. barely ran long enough to get it inside. checked spark at the coil and have good bright arc on 1&4 and nothing on 2&3. i have checked compression (good all the way around) i took the new coil off and put the original back on with no change. checked engine ground straps, (good), i have checked wiring connectors (look good), moved wires around while engine is running (no change) any help would be greatly appreciated :)
I have a 2002 Trailblazer LTZ with the airbag light and the phrase “Service Airbag System” scrolling across the dash in the info area. The Code reader shows only one code, and it’s B1000 which is ECU malfunction 2, according to my code reader. If you try and erase the code it says it is successful, but upon re-link it comes back. I already had reprogram the airbag module and get the same B1000 code. If I unplug any other sensors to the system then I get a code error for each of them. They disappear when the sensors are reconnected. I have no idea which component is causing the error. The Electronic Control module is communicating with the airbag module just fine. Is the Electronic Control module faulty? That is the module with three connectors located on the engine.
