SOURCE: rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas

it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

Have a 2006 dodge 3500 cummins that just stopped charging Friday

If you can jump start it and disconnect the jumper cables then let it run for a minute or two at just a bit off-idle to try a little charge provided your belt is turning the alternator pulley, then disconnect the negative cable from the battery. If it continues to run just off idle the problem is a sulphated battery. If it dies the it's time for a new alternator.

1999 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel battery gauge has been low for a couple days, tried to start it this morning and it was dead. I jump started it aand it ran for a few minutes after unhooking jumper cables,...

yes to a point. Obviously as you know if your alternator is dead your battery will drain and the car will die. But also, if the battery has quit so bad and maintains a voltage of no more than 8-1/2 volts or so the car will still die because there isn't enough voltage to maintain the computer and it will shut down.

My 2007 dodge charger didn't crank so I jumped it

A battery from 07 is still decently new to be that bad, but I would check the alternator first, just get the car running and unhook the positive cable from the battery, if the car dies the alternator is bad.

Car would not start for wife she had it towed home I tried next morning it started first try and sounded fine, check engine light has been coming on when fueling it has gone out added injector cleaner...

My first thought is that you may have a fuel filter issue or a fuel pump starting to go south. The part about the battery could be a dirty terminal, loose cable or the battery is giving up. Clean the cables and check fuel pressure. I would try to see what trouble codes are stored and address them as well.

98' Cav.. Drove it to store, shopped, didnt leave anything running or turned on. Went to car, opened dome light (thought, hmph, must have burned out -- fix later). Tried to start car... I turned...

this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery

Battery being drained and low beam light not working

check your alternator to make sure it is putting sufficient charge to charge the battery. he proper thest would be to take it to a parts store and have them tell you the voltage. a get by test would be to start the carnd disconnect the battery and see how long the car runs. IF it dies then your alternator is bad.

2002 sebring lx will not idle

Change out the other plugs, it may be difficult but they are meant to be reached. It just requires trickery.Be sure to check codes on the computer and consider changing the wires too.

Where is the Alternator located in a 1997 Lexus LS 400

If the car ran and got you home after a jump start I doubt the alternator is bad. Check your battery. And remember never ever disconnect the battery cable with the engine running.
