I have a 2005 Magnum and was also having this problem. Stalled out a few times and continued to idle rough and feel like it was going to die when I would slow down. At times it would feel like I would get a hesitation and then a surge. Engine light would go on for a day or so, then go out for a few days. First time I took it in, the dealership told me that it was a broken seal (I don't know where), but they replaced it and it continued to happen. The second time I took it to a mom & pop shop, and they told me that it was the oxygen sensor/altimeter, replaced it (only a $35 part), and I haven't had a problem since. That was 6 months ago. Hope this helps...

SOURCE: 2005 v6 dodge magnum wont start.
Your battery is probably ready to be replaced. It needs a long slow charge or when you try to jump start with another car, you need to leave the jumper cables on for 20 or 30 mins at least. This will bring up the level of your battery and perhaps it will start.
For future reference the only true measure of a battery;s condition is by measuring the state of the electrolyte in the battery. To do this you need 2 things. Onew is a small charger. Not a bad thing to have with winter coming on. You can get one for under $30. The second thing is a hydrometer. This is a meter that tells you the specific gravity of a batteries electrolyte> you can get on for under $5. To use this device you take the covers off the top on the battery, put the rubber tube into the battery and draw up some liquid.. A reading in the green is good condition. One has to check all 6 cells, because what typically happens is 4 od 5 cells will check good and the others will not. TIME to replace the battery.BTW, these measurements should always be made after the battery has been charged.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating Thanksl

there are 2 sensor on the carb . you may need to replace both to find out whiche one it is . try this also give it gas while starting and when it starts you will have to keep your foot on the gas a little to keep it running if it runs that way its one of the 2 senors .

My story Dealing with Dodge
I had a 1994 Dodge Ram. The Red Dodge Ram I had it malfunctioned and my brake became the throttle. I had to put the truck in reverse then park. to stop, after it was out of control at 80 mph a hill slowed us down. Are you sure its not electrical and the curse control is not giving you trouble? Mine had multifunction switch was not working and the headlight switch burned up. I also found out that Audi had problem with the brake becoming the throttle in the 1980s Daimler Chrysler and Audi were German made. I don't think there is an easy answer. I hope you stay safe. Another man is having strange trouble also. I'm sure there are many more people with trouble with the vehicles. I wish Dodge would step up to the truth. and recall their nightmares. I saw many of their 1996 Dodge trucks at their dealers shop with all the electrical pulled out.
