When was the last time you cleaned the MAFS hot wire? If you have a pop charger that was just cleaned and oiled it could be that you have a contaminated hot wire. I would also check all the intake plumbing for any breaks or leaks as any un-metered air entering the system will cause the car to die when gas is applied.

45 minutes in rain? Do you have pop charger after market air intake whatever you want to call it?
If so and you hit a big puddle or two very possible the filter is just really wet and needs to dry out and this part of your problem goes away.

|austinpinelliz32||i thought my gas guage could have been broken but we pushed it to the gas station from where i broke down and threw $10 of 93 in it. car fired right up but then again shut off when i went to give it gas. my batteries are shot but im not sure about the alternator. my check engine light and battery light are on.|

I'm guessing it isn't totally battery/charging related. The fact it starts back up kind of puts that at the back of the list for me.
It does have gas in it right? I know silly question but **** sometimes it's the simple stuff. Never know of your gas gauge **** the bed since the last time you filled up.

Unfortunately there's a lot of complexity with our engines. You'll need to work thru and test various sub systems. I'd start with the electrical system, be sure the battery and alternator are good since both are fairly straightforward to examine.
Next question would be a possible vacuum leak? --did a hose slip off somewhere? Just before the issue happened were you driving the car hard, boosting?
If you believe there's an issue with either the fuel pump or fuel pump controller would be best to connect a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel line plumbing (by fuel filter) and monitor that.
Until you narrow it down a bit all of us will just be guessing about the issue.

Sounds like it could be a TPS issue.
And thank you for starting by running the codes.
