After the letting it run for a little it eventually just shut off by itself, tried starting it and it ran for a few minutes and shut off again no rough idle or stumbling before it shut off,it's almost like somebody turned the key back to shut it off
Well excellent!! You've made real progress! In addition to checking the grounds, I would trace back the mods made to the third brake light circuits and then undo the mods so the circuits are back in their original configuration.
