Default Truck starts then dies
I have a 2011 ram 1500 outdoorsman. today my truck started being a pain in my a$$. I would start, let me drive and then die while driving. now it starts then immediately dies. I'm thinking it's the wireless ignition node. thoughts, tips, or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Either losing spark, gas or air. Something in ignition or gas filter clogged maybe. if it was something like a sensor protecting the engine you would likely be getting a code.

Need more info. How does it start? i.e., barely starts after cranking for 10 seconds, starts normal, etc. Also, when it dies, does it spit, buck & sputter or just cut off? If it's immediate, it's likely electrical. If it's more predictable and depends on certain factors, it's likely a fuel and/or air problem. Any codes?

Crankshaft position sensor will do what you are describing and wont always throw a code if at all.

New as in you just put it on then you started having issues? If so, I would look there first, could be defective.
