Well Chad, you could check a few things that are free. I would clean and make sure both battery connections are tight. You can use a mixture of water and baking soda to dissolve most of the corrosion on your battery terminals. If you have a battery terminal brush that would be even better. There are a number of things it could be and this is just one step in eliminating a few things. If that doesn't work or help, I would check all the cables for a possible bad or loose ground, you could also have a short somewhere. From the minimal information you gave, it sounds like an electrical problem. Without witnessing the vehicle acting up myself, it's kind of hard to help you out in more depth. If you can provide a few more details, maybe we can find the problem.

Let us know how you do.

Check engine light is on, motor runs rough, sometimes stalls


Go to Advance or Auto Zone and have them run an obd scan on it and it will pin point why your light is on and could solve your problem. This is often done for free.
