    I have the same problem. My battery is discharging for some reason and after charging it yesterday for an hour it started but would not idle without holding the accelerator down until it the engine warmed up. This has been the second or third time for this. Dont know why.

    This is actually my son's truck. ( he does not have his license yet)

    so I drive it from time to time. I have a friend who has almost the same truck, and he said it is the battery.



    Thanks

The Dodge loses it idle calibration with a dead battery, after restart, try to keep it running, driving it a few minutes may help. It has to re-learn it's idle. But, you do have a battery or a battery drain problem also.

If the battery is dead,it is a dangerous practice
to jump start it,not recommended I should say

If you can charge it, or take it out and replace it, that
is your best bet.

Someone on your street will have a charger

Truck suddenly stopped running like battery was dead. Got a jump nut only ran for 1-2 seconds then stopped again


I have a 2003 Chevy Avalanche 1500 Z71 4X4. What you describe happened to me (6) times last week. #1, I replaced the ignition switch, $32.00. The issue happened again last night and recorded the code P1514 (Throttle Body performance condition). #2, I cleaned the MAF (mass airflow sensor) and the throttle body. These parts require specific cleaners, which can be purchased at any parts store. Truck runs like new. Best regards, Mike Pyne

1998 Dodge 1500 with 4.7L engine starts fine but won't idle. Yesterday it ran fine.


This symptom is classic for a dead/dying battery. Have the battery load tested. If it shows the least bit flakey, replace it.

If it is more than 5 years old I would replace it as a preventative measure.

I believe you will find the battery is your problem.
