First, Id like to thank everyone who has replied. Your help is greatly appreciated.
I have narrowed this down to a simple problem. The engine will start and run fine. It shuts down as soon as I use any interior and exterior electrical. This includes dome light, turn signals, horn, radio or even if I sit in the front seat. Whatever this has in common with the engine is the problem.
I have started the engine and disconnected the battery cables, it still runs. The alternator is supplying the battery with 14.5 volts. Cannot say this is a problem. Checked all grounds that I can find. All engine sensors appear to be good. Changed crankshaft, camshaft and throttle sensors. Disconnected fuseable link to exterior lighting, pulled all fuses. Still same trouble.
This one has me stupmed. Started just fine and ran home after work. The next morning it would not start. So here we are.

Had the alternator checked at the shop. It is good. Took the starter relay apart and cleaned the contacts, it looks good. The battery is a year old and holds charge well. Took the fuseable link for the headlights out of the picture, no help.
Call me stupmy!!!!
