I had this happen to me a few years ago.. It turned out that it was the starter wire. It kept blowing the 10 amp fues in the fuse box in the engine compartment. Happened while we were on vacation too. The local dealer ship ended up running a completely new wire all the way from the fuse box up to the iginition. If only they had done that at the start of the vacation when it happened rather than on the last day we were there. :(

The symptoms were that we would put a new fuse in and it would run for a while, and then the car would die, and we got absolutely nothing from the ignition. (raidio and everything else worked okay though) let me know if that works for you, because my 2001 Town and country is the absolute worst vehicle I have ever owned from a maintenance standpoint.

At red light engine seems like it wants to cut off.

try changing your pcv valve. if its dirty it may be causing the shuttering. as for the check engine light going on and off, you may have a bad gas cap. if the cap is faulty it will cause the engine light to come on at times because of a poor air to fuel ratio.

Truck doesnt go anywhere

Hi Amanda
You might have a blocked fuel filter, which is commonly installed on the metal fuel line which runs from your tank to your engine bay, and the filter is usually installed near your fuel (gas) tank. Sometimes its a plastic item and semi-transparent, and sometimes its a metal can. I assume you have a normal petrol engine and not diesel.

If its a diesel truck, it might be blocked injectors, which can be costly to fix. Have you tried some fuel cleaner in your gas tank? This stuff is available at most auto shops and helps clean out the sludge and hard deposits wihich can block up your injector nozzles (diesel engine) or fuel injectors (electronic fuel injection system) or carburettor jets (normal engine carburettor found on much older vehicles),

If all of your lights and horn and radio work, and nothing seems to dim or stop working eg eg dash lights, radio, when you turn on something that draws a lot power (like high beam headlights), (ie lots of current from your battery and alternator circuit) then its unlikely to be truck's electrics. If the truck starts without hesitation, the battery is probably OK and the alternator is doign its job ie charging the baattery and supplying 12 volts DC to the trucks electrics.

Most modern cars have an engine management computer under the hood to control fuel mixture, igniton spark, fuel/air ratio (sometimes inside the vehicle) and any auto service centre can hook up a test unit to your car/truck computer and run a diagnostic test.
