you need to check the fuel pump relay to see if working properly and the auto shut down relay or the main relay sounds like it has stuck on and is draining the battery which in the interm has now burned up the rekay ((((like points in a older car )))) so now it wont activate the fuel pump relay for fuel pump activity..

I have two Ram 50's so have been using the one that is running. Interestingly when I checked for spark, had none, removed distributor cap, no rotation, pulled timming belt cover, tightner retainer bolt had backed off, belt inoperative. Thanks for feedback, great sight!
