It's an electrical short, have an electrics diagnostic run and start looking for a new wiring harness. Also, have alternator checked.

If you're not getting any trouble codes, check the fuel pump relay. It's just in front of the firewall, drivers side. I had this same start/stop problem with mine at 198000k. Swapped it out with a new one and it ran great.
