so I pick up this cirrus drove fine first day . Next day in the morning I turned it on . About a minute went by and it shut it self off . Thought maybe it sat awhile before I bought it . So drove it to work and with in 25 minutes came to a light and it shut off at the light .started right up . Still doing the same thing . Replaced the alternator because it failed voltage regulator. Swapped the auto shut off relay . Cleaned the throttle body and cleaned the iac . No change . No codes no lights on dash . Any ideas ?

This might be an ignition problem. How does the coil look?
When you said that you cleaned the IAC, did you also thoroughly clean the housing where it resides?

Is this the engine where the distributor wiring runs under the intake manifold? There were problems with those due to chaffed wiring.
Agreed, this is a good area to look. In fact, you might also check the wiring coming off the sensors, the alternator, and just about everywhere else, for frays. This can be time-consuming, so patience is required. I had a similar problem on a Dakota (hot stalling immediately after starting, but not while driving) that was caused by a frayed wire near the connector to the throttle position sensor. A butt splice fixed it.
