I spent many a day and dollar trying to figure that one out. Later, a mechanic friend of mine called a contact at Dodge and found ou that the computer had a know problem with the input connector. This is the connector attached to the computer, not on the wiring harness. Although, there were times that I could move the connector and the check engine fault light would come on. In the end, I had to replace the computer. I just wish Dodge had been honest about this and replaced these for free. It only fails when hot and can fail at any speed. I thought it was a safety issue and that Dodge should fix it, but they won't.

Yep had the same problem with mine. Replaced the computer (poor design by Dodge) and haven't had a problem since. There is a place online that sells reman'd ones for less then $500 and you can replace them yourselves. It's 4 bolts, a wiring harness, and 10 minutes of your time. DO NOT take it to the dealership, they'll charge you and arm and a leg

Does it stall at idle, just after you start up? Does it stall when you give it gas - or take your foot off of the gas? Does it stall at stoplights, stopsigns, etc? Does it stall when the engine is hot or cold or warm? I would love to try and help, but you've gotta give me something to work off of!

check your battery then the connections if it still wont start try changing the starter solenoid if possible

If a 2003 Dodge Diesel has a bad fuel pump, the vehicle will probably not start. If it does start, it will not run very long before it starts to spit and sputter and may even stall.

IAC its the same as the fast idle on a carb, its how comp controls cold starts **When this happened on my 1999 Dodge Durango it was a simple fix. Replace the Throttle Body Sensor. It is about 50$ at most auto retail stores.

to tune up for speed you should start with a cold air intake, a super-chip for the cpu, and buying a better exaust

Yes that is very possible. The fuel pump my also be defective.
