Could be the ballast resister this is bypassed by the solonoid on start but the power to the coil is suplied through it on run it is a white ceramic block with a wire each end and is usually on the coil or near to it some vehicles have a resistive wire in the loom but if it's a late model it should be the one i have described. good luck

First things time it quits, if possible get a volt meter and see how many volts you have to the positive side of the coil.

Sounds like a fuel pump to me...

Do Fords use a ballast resistor?
Re: truck will fire but die Sam Watson 2-9-03  
Yes, in the form of a resister unit inside the wiring harness. It is inside the red wire that goes to the coil + and is bypassed during cranking. Check for power at the coil + with switch in run position. If the resister unit has failed,there won't be any power. To fix it, just put a resister unit, single type, from a Chrysler product in a jumper wire around it.
