We have had lots of cases where the car cranks but won't start, or cars that stall intermittently caused by bad connections at battery cable ends or by internally corroded cables. You need to examine the cables at both ends as willwren advised. Also check the condition of the PCM ground by the oil filter, the ICM ground on the mounting bolt underneath, and the body ground near the battery. These should be all clean and bright and put back together with dielectric grease.
