Stalling during stop

A few days ago my battery was dead after charging the motor raced during idle. I checked connections and the problem went away. Starting today it will start and idle just fine, but went I an under power and slow for an intersection the engine stalls. It will start right back up and if I put it in netural and feather the gas it will not stall

    I had killed the battery boosting another vehicle. Prior to that there were no issues.

  • GerryM3296 May 23, 2008

    The battery was fully charged after it had drained by boasting a diffrent vehicle. It cranks over as fast as it ever did. Where it just started today I have not been able to drive it for an extended period. I will have to tomorrow as I need to travel a couple of hundred miles.

    I'll get it tested and replace if need be. I'll update you when I know more. Thank you.

Check the alternator to see what it is pumping out and also check the spark. Also check the fuel pump as it sounds like it isn't cranking out enough gas which may because of low battery. If you have another battery that you can try in the jeep, that would be great and see if you continue to have the same problems. If it is the alternator, after a while the battery will be down in power. Right now I would bet the battery or alternator is bad so have a look and tell me what you find. You will have to test the power output of the alternator

    When you try to start it, is it cranking over as fast as it used to? Try putting the battery on a battery charger until charged also to see if that helps, you shouldn't try and charge it by jumping it. You can also try and get it back up to full power by driving around at 55mph or so for an hour or 2 and see how it is going after that. Let me know what you have done and an update on the situation after trying the above options

    alright sounds good, Do you have another battery to put into the Jeep from perhaps a different vehicle to see if it runs better or can you test the battery to see what it has for a charge?



    It is also possible that a relay is bad but I would check into the first options that I gave you.

I think the battery is not properly charging to full cycle.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.


Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

I'd take it to any good parts store (autozone, advance, etc..) and have them do a FREE charging system test and load test your battery. Almost sounds like your alternator is not charging or starting to go bad (not charging at full capacity)

I would check the vacuum lines thoroughly as one may have collasped or previous owner replaced with a substandard one,which may be partially collaspe then upon warming up will vacuum itself shut causing the motor to surge then fail to run or start if it happens to be a main line that is affected.

HAVE IT SCAN TO CHECK FOR IDLE AIR CONTROL CODES.IF IDLE AIR CONTROL IS OKAY.YOU COULD HAVE BAD SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES.A LEAKING INTAKE GASKET OR MISSING VACUUM HOSES OR LINES AND A FAULTY FUEL INJECTOR WILL CAUSE CAR TO SHUT OFF WHILE COMING TO A STOP.

Truck loops during idle and eventually stalls.


Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

My car threatens to die during idling...the rpm drops down low and then goes back to normal. It started doing this during driving too. I just had the fuel filter and a few other fuel related things...

No power to dash or dome light in 2003 jeep tj.


As far as the guage issue it is most likely a problem with the body control module, have a trouble code test run on the BCM to determine the issue, the stalling is caused by the loss of the idle strategy learning when the battery went dead, the best thing to do is the following procedure I use to clear this issue.

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls (or very low idle) near or at idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Idle problem


If the car starts after charging but will not idle, I would suspect the alternator is defective. The alternator is fitted with a diode pack (all to do with the electrics, valve bocking AC but allowing DC to pass) this is the the part that fails.
It allows a correct current to pass to the battery (DC only)
If the car starts after charging and runs for a few miles before stopping and the evidence is a dead battery - It will definately be the alternator.
Hope this helps

I've had similar problems on Fords whit batteries going dead very quickly the fastest one was a relay stuck on specifically the fuel pump relay(1986 tbird) and once it was the EEC power relay (1991 F150) both caused the fuel pump to stay running and in less than an hour my battery was dead. I also had an f150 (92) that had a bad glove box light switch) but it would take a day or so. I'd check to see if you have a bad relay that is causing a motor to run, fuel pump, or electric cooling fan(if equipped) otherwise you have some sort of short in the system draining your battery they are usually not so quick.
