On dodge/chrysler products, when you replace the battery and start the engine, you have to manually hold the idle up with gas pedal for a few minutes so the computer can relearn. it will eventually idle.

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Stratus wont start

first you want to make sure your engine is not seized, do this byy taking a wrench and turning the engine manually with the crank shaft, thats the one all the ay on the bottom, if it does not move your engine seized.

if it is not seized, check all of your battery cables to make sure they are not corroded or greasy, as an extra measure you may want to clean the neg cable at the block to make sure it is getting connection.

I have a 2002 dodge stratus rt i just changed out the altanator for a new one and now the car turns over but will die as soon as you take your foot off the throtle

Disconnect the battery for about fifteen minutes. Your pcm needs to clear out so it can get fresh readings off the sensors. Sometimes the idle speed control sensor gets a little squirrelly when you play with the electrical systems on dodges. Good luck.

Also make sure that the starter is getting 12 volts on the large wire, put multi-meter on the S term/purple or small wire on the starter try to start the car and make sure you are getting voltage there also. I'll recheck this post later on to see how you are doing.
