Thought battery was bad

I had battery checked & charged & then my car started, but as soon as I took my foot off the gas, it croaked. Anyone know what's up with this? Thanks.

For some strange reason your fuel is not being constantly being fed in to your fuel rail and injectors. this most likely is due to a bad ecm brain computer which regulates signals to the fuel system. could be an electrical short in your harness that runs from your ecm.

Possible weak battery faulty starter or relay. Start by checking & charging the battery & making sure the connections are tight & clean. Check charging system too.

Why is the only way I can get my Jeep to start is holding the gas down.

did you recently have a dead battery or any charging problems such as a bad alternator. if so that is what caused this, you can fix it your self by simply starting and holding your foot on the gas for 5 to ten minutes. this will let your Pcu or on board computer re-learn the proper throttle position to let the engine idle. If you have not had these problems it could be any number of things. a bad throttle positioning sensor being the first thing i would check. could also be bad fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, or fuel injectors. if there is a check engine light on go to autozone and have it checked for free. they will tell you exactly what it is.

So I have a 99 ford ranger 6 cylinder I believe it's a 3 liter flex fuel Anyways the other day when I was driving to work I got up to about 30 and it wouldn't accelerate anymore I took my foot off the gas...

The battery light would have come on as soon as the engine stopped turning. The light means the alternator is not charging the battery.
You'll need to check fuel pressure and other factors to proceed.

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee wouldnt start,acted like a dead battery. (had battery and alternator tested both good) when I jumped it it started right up but as soon as I took my foot off the gas it

Have throttle body cleaned and "minimum air rate" adjusted. Computer looses learned memory when battery is disconnected and has to start over again.

Dies when foot off gas

I would get another opinion on the alternator. There are tests that I am sure that autozone did not and cannot run. One is a load test, This would indicate if the battery is getting any electricity from the alternator under loadm diodes in the alternator could be failing. There is no way to adjust the RPM. IT should be around 800 on an automatic tranny in drive.

The battery keeps draining. Any thoughts on what

My friend;
Try this;

Your Alternator NOT producing enough Volts & It's going to die soon.

I suggested that you check the performance of your electric Alternator; It seems it's NOT producing enough Volts.
It must produce at least 13.7 volts with some loads ON.
Such head light, air-condition ON.

Alternator produces between 13.7- 14.8 volts to power the car accessories & charging the battery.

Alternator has brushes might be worn or broken, etc.

OR : check battery post may has corrosion on it or the cable strands { wires}.
Need cleaning & thin coat of grease.

Try it, & PLZ; let me know if It work with You & If I add any benefits to you.
I hope I add some thing valuable to you.

96 Jeep GCL wants to turn over, but can't unless ur give gas

To begin with, a 45minute charge is insufficient to fully charge a battery. A "quick charge" can damage the battery by overheating the plates, causing them to warp and shed lots of oxide that falls to the bottom and acts as a short. I've found that charging at 10 amps or less for up to six hours works best. After charging fully, the battery must be load tested (generally a 200amp load is applied and the battery voltage should not fall below 9.5 volts...test is under 15 seconds or it can damage a good battery.)
Next is the charging system. I use a simple but fairly reliable method for doing this. With the car running, place a volt meter on the battery and read voltage with all accessories off. Volts should be under 14 and above 13...generally about 13.5....Then turn on everything electrical in the car. Volts should not be less than 12.9 but 12.5 is OK as long as it does not drop further. After running for about ten minutes, voltage should not creep downward below the 12.5 mark. It may vary as regulator comes on and off but it should not drop. When some shops check an alternator, they "full field" it...this tells you that the alternator itself is able to charge the battery but does not tell you if the regulator is working correctly.
If the voltage is below specifications either the alternator or voltage regulator has or is failing.
On some Jeeps, the voltage regulator is in the computer (I know...really bright) and if it is it cannot be replaced separately. If regulator is inside the alternator you can change it or replace the alternator.
You can also have something in the system drawing down the battery, but from what you wrote, I don't think you have a problem there.
