94 Dakota auto shutdown issue


I have been dealing with an issue that has gotten worse and grounded my 94 V6 dakota (auto trans) - it will idle in the driveway all day long, once i try to leave it will shut down within a half mile......will not restart for about 2 mins - then will restart and go for another 1/2 mile or so. I have replaced the cam and crank position sensors (twice, in case I had a bad one), the ASD relay, re-worked the splice near the PDC, also replaced the PCM. I am reading codes 43 (spark, ignition control circuit problem), 42 ASD relay circuit problem (codes shows twice), 47 Battery voltage sensing circuit problem (volts too low) (codes shows twice), 21 Oxygen sensor shorted to voltage, signal too high.....I am at a loss what the problem could be...

Sounds like bad wiring.

When it doesn't start do you have spark, or correct fuel pressure? Does the injectors spray fuel?

I would check the battery wires, my sons 95 did this and after lots of checking found the cables had corded up inside of the crip on the wires, replaced the ends and it ran great.
