Is the hood pin selected OFF in the bypass options in flashlink, it seem like the truck starts and then sees a hood or door open or unlocked and enters kill mode.  Maybe try the RAP bypass setting turn it ON?

I’m having the same issue on a 2016 Ram 2500 diesel tip start. Disable hood pin setting, enable RAP and truck stills shuts down. Tried grounding hood pin for testing and still shuts down. Door is closed. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I’m at a dead end after 3 days working on this problem. Red light comes on when engine turns off.
