Was the car acting the same way before the battery change? Turn on the lights to see if the battery is charged--they should run for ten minutes or so without dimming. If not, charge the battery with an external charger--several hours with a high current charger, overnight with a low current charger. If charging the battery fixes the problem, then measure the battery voltage at the posts with the engine running--you should read 13.5 volts or a little more. If you read 12.6 volts or less, the alternator is likely in trouble. Take the car to AutoZone or similar business for a free check of the charging system. Hope this helps, but if doesn't, check back with us and include any additional symptoms noted plus what you have done to rectify things.

My dodge durango will not stay running


Will not idle unless gas is applied?
Will stay idle after a bit of running?

First i'd recomend starting off with a new battery if yours is older, durangos have a quirk with voltages and sometimes wont play with 12v.
Also the TPS could be an issue.

CAR WONT STAY RUNNING


disconnect the battery cable for about an hour to restart the engine computer. It will then need to relearn your car's operating paramters again. Once the strategy is relearned, it should be ok.
