2002 Dodge Dakota V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 30,000 miles
I went to start my truck and the battery was dead. I jump started it and even with the jumper cables on it, the truck will not stay idling. I was able to disconnect the cables as long as I kept pushing the throttle, the truck would stay running. Once it got below 1000 rpms, it just completely dies. The alternator is charging so something else appears to be draining the battery. Possibly the same thing causing the truck not to idle. I also noticed that the ABS light is now staying on. All of this happened at exactly the same time.
