Default Scion xB died while driving and now refuses to stay on

Hello everyone,
This is my first post on Scionlife, unfortunately it is not on good terms

I have an 06 Scion xB, 334,xxx miles, 5 speed manual, everything is stock expect for my Viper remote start.

The other day I was driving for about 2 minutes and suddenly the car shut itself off, strange. I pulled over, did a quick look around, didn't see any leaking fluids or any other obvious signs of issues. When I tried to start it it fired right back up, sounded normal, and shut itself off after about 2 seconds of running. I ran the codes and it is giving me faults on Ignition Coil B and C, and pending faults for A and D. I have played around with the coilpacks a bit and am about 99% certain they are all sparking just fine, plus when I start the car it sounds completely normal, for the very short time it is on.

I have tried a few things here and there with no luck.

As it sits, it is able to start right up, but then shuts right off in 2 seconds again.

I have not found a whole lot about this on the internet and am really hoping for some insight on this issue.

Thanks in advance!
