Yes, you could try that. It's the first step, to do a visual inspection, checking for wiring problems. Depending on the type of sensor that is shutting down. If my car was shutting off, here is what I would try first. 3.0L speed sensor. 3.3L crank sensor, same for 3.8L.
Sometimes the manifold absolute pressure sensor(MAP) will cause the engine to shut off, but it usually starts, runs for a second than stalls, needing a tow job. In 88 every vehicle, that died, made by Chrysler would have no codes, and than you would have to start diagnostic procedures for a no code situation, and the 3rd time was lemon law, so a new PCM was installed, simply because it's internal checks were not picking anything up. The speed sensor was another problem, especially if there is any problem with your speedometer or speed control. Ok
