Look under the hood to check and make sure there is two steel wire cables connected to the throttle body. i had the same problem on my 02 dodge ram, turns out that just one of the cables came loose

Check to see if it is not your 'idle speed motor'. About the size of your thumb on the back side of the throttle body. Also, and I know it sounds simple, check your air cleaner.

My 2001 dodge ram 1500 magnum v8 idle is off,how do i adjust it?

It's computer controlled, so it's not really adjustable.
You might be able to turn a screw for base idle.
If the idle speed is low it may be due to a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve.

clean or replace idle air control valve located on the throttle body, this is the valve that adjusts the ammount of air allowed into the engine to adjust fuel mixture. If you change it clean the throttle plate of all the carbon build up

then the normal suspects are...
IAT (intake air temp) sensor

Engine dies at stop light.

The engine idle speed is not adjustable. You probably have a problem with the Idle Air Control Motor on the side of the throttle body.
