The next time it fails check for voltage to the pump. If it's there for one second after turning the ignition switch to "run", the pump should run for that one second. If there's no voltage, we have a wiring problem. If there is voltage for that first one second, watch if that voltage comes back during cranking. If it does not come back suspect the crankshaft position sensor or the camshaft position sensor.
If you have voltage but the pump doesn't run, have the fuel tank steam cleaned at a radiator repair shop before replacing the pump again. Chrysler pumps are real quiet because they are built with very tight clearances but that makes them susceptible to the impellers locking up due to microscopic debris in the tank. That is a real common cause of repeat pump failures. By about the fifth or sixth pump the debris will be gone and the next pump will work fine. That's often the one that people get frustrated enough to buy one from the dealer so they think the aftermarket pumps are junk. In fact, NAPA pumps, (and perhaps some others), come from the same supplier that Chrysler gets them from so they are just as quiet as the dealer's pumps.
Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Internet provider was down again yesterday for the entire day.
