The first problem is your idle air control vavle it is located on the thottle body . the idle air control vavles job is to have the engine run a little high to warm the engine ,and then shut off once engine warm. . the other is a your blend door is stuck open or close. you may have something stuck in it. the bend door motor is located in the heater box in the dash

SOURCE: Key stuck in ignition

Under the steering column is an access plug. Remove the plug and insert a small shaft driver into the hole and push up gently, the key will release.

SOURCE: 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi Quad won't start in morning

could be that the electronic throttle could be icing up. just remove the air cleaner and have someone cycle the key. the throttlebody will cycle prior to starting to do a self check. chrysler has a tsb out for this concern. tsb # 14-002-05
