Just wondering if you ever got this fixed? My 04 Armada is having the same problem. It will stall while driving down the road at 50 mph or when idling. Sometimes it will start right up after I pull off the road and turn the key, other times it will take a couple of tries to get it to start. The dealer has replaced both the fuel pump and the crankshaft position sensor to no avail. They thought that it might have to do with an aftermarket security system that was placed on the car by the dealer before I bought it . The removed the system but left all the wires under the dash. I've removed all the wires so see if that was the problem but it still happens. I called a car alarm dealer and explained the issue and he said that it was impossible for it to be caused by a security system. A security system would only disable a car from starting or even cranking but could never shut off a car while it was already running. He said that would be very dangerous and the systems are never designed to interfere with a car that is running.
Anyway, I'm thinking of telling the dealer to replace the IPDM. Please let me know whatever happened with your car.

Depends on how the aftermarket system is setup. For instance I do security installs on Subarus, and we designed our fuel-cut system to cut the ground wire on the fuel pump relay. So in theory if a part of our security system failed the fuel pump would cut out. This is also the most secure way to protect your car.
If I had to guess I'd say it's an IPDM issue.

The title is incorrect but the problem is the same. Look at these messages and you will find the trouble I had and the solutions that corrected my problem of stalling, sputtering, stopping etc.etc.etc. Item #556, 559, 565, 566, 567,and 568. the messages were sent to several people but the problem that corrected my troubles seemed to be more than one thing, as you read the things that were performed by the dealer. The dealer was only guessing at trying to find the problem and at my expence because it costed me $100.00 each time I took the auto in. under my extended warrenty. Only one time did I get a rental to replace my vehicle, that was the last time, when they put in the module (IPDM) and had to keep the auto and run it to check that it functioned correctly. The replacment of the fuel filter, fuel pump, computer and finally the Intergrated PowerI Distributor Module (IPDM), my stalling,hesitation and stopping problems are over, hope this help you with your troubles.

Here is the list of differences...
1) Nicer leather and interior appointments (a very noticeable difference in both my wife's and my opinions)
2) Better sound deadening all over the vehicle (see #13)
3) Longer warranty
4) HID headlights versus regular headlamps
5) More exterior paint/colors
6) More interior color choices
7) Add heated rear seats vs N/A
8) Body color rear splash guards vs Black
9) Electroluminescent instrument panel vs N/A
10) Burr-Brown audio upgrade vs N/A
11) rear camera has a slightly better view due to its higher mounting--less of the rear bumper in the picture
12) Chrome wheels and spare vs N/A
13) 400 lbs heavier--I assume more sound deadening and upgraded interior materials
14) Loaners provided when bringing Truck in for Service
15) Chrome side moulding vs. body color (plus fender flares?)
16) Leather center console top vs. rubber and plastic
17) chrome roof rails vs. satin finish
18) captains chairs seating easily available / split bench harder to find vs. split bench easily available / captains chairs nearly impossible to find
19) all windows auto up/down vs. only front windows auto up/down
20) real wood and aluminum interior accents vs. plastic and simulated wood interior accents
21) useless analog clock vs nice little cubby for something ipod sized
22) LED Tail/brake lights vs. Regular bulb lights
23) 3rd row seats matching leather vs matching vinyl
24) Engine tuned a bit for a few more HP & torque
25) 24/7 free Roadside assistance forever for original owner
Personally...we just purchased a QX and love it. Is it worth the money over the Armada? Depends on your definition of "worth" it? You get most of the QX in the Armada, but you don't get the subtle luxuries. We wanted those and they are well worth the added $$$ for us!

This sounds like the same problem I am having with my 04 Armada. It has happened several times over the last several months. I took it in once but they couldnt duplicate the problem so they couldnt fix it! That is so frustrating! Last night while driving home (2 hr drive) it sputtered and jerked and lost power all the way home. Every time I went up a hill it would start loosing power. I got off the hwy once and wasn't able to get back on for 4 miles! I couldnt get it over 40 mph and had to drive on the shoulder until finally just taking an exit and staying off of the hwy. This is very dangerous! I cant even think of passing someone on the hwy because it will loose power and then I'm stuck! Did replacing the valve body (I dont know what that is) help your issue?

Since the dealer was "guessing" and switching parts to try and narrow the problem down, did the extended warranty cover all the unnecessary parts that were replaced or did the dealer remove them once the problem identified and corrected?

My extended warrenty was for any problem I had to take it in and pay the $100.00 and they decide if it was a problem that was under warrenty. Of course I had checked that before I took it in. I waited and tried to get help like you did with this forun, I used several forums and this one gave me the best results. I got a rental only once over the foru times I took it in because it took more than two days to do what they had to do. They were required to test the vehicle after replacing the (IPDM). After $400.00, a computer,fuel filter, fuel pump and IPDM my Armada is OK now. I did change the air filter because of the smoke and sut from the fires hers.
