2001 dodge ram 318, wont start, wont idle

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2. The other day afterrunning fine, began to idle bad. I tried disconecting the battery and after that, I thought my problems were fixed. After a short tript o town, it died and would not start. I had it towed tot he house and after a little research, I replaced the Idle air control valve. Now it wont start at all. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Coy

Dodge's electronics are known for not handling low voltage from a dying battery. Weird things happen with a bad battery.

he's right on that one, I just replace my battery 2 weeks ago and it solved my problems. My truck would start but not Idle, it would run if I kept it at higher rpms but would not idle, sometimes it would die as soon as it started, my radio would reset to scratch, my over head would show CCd, when it would idle it felt like it was missing. Changed the battery and its running like new again, 2 weeks and no problems what so ever
