I had the same prob in a 90 Caravan when rats got up into the dash and chewed on some wires... the van started and ran as long as gas pedel was pushed down... Im not saying that rats chewed your wires but it might just be some of the wires that's under the dash are getting old like and falling apart on you...

Hi, The battery has enough power to turn the starter, but not enough to run the computer. You can test it this way. As you try to start the engine, give it a little gas to keep the engine running above idle. If it runs above idle then dies at idle it is the battery. I have had this happen twice in the 10 years with my 2000 Durango.
