Default Low Idle and dying?!

Just when I thought I was done repairing the truck, anew challenger appears lol. The other day it was about -40 and my truck would start idling right around 500rpm or a little lower. At one point, my dashboard light up with "check gauges" and noticed my battery gauage showed it was completely dead. I reved it a bit and it came back up, but was still idleing low. I drove down the road a bit, and my truck dies. It didnt sputter or surge or anything, just died. When I tried to start it, it wouldn't even click like the batery was dead. After waiting a bit, it would click like I had a dead battery. And after waiting about 10 minutes, it finally started. The next day, It would only start and run if I was giving it gas. AS soon as I took my foot of the gas, it would die. Any suggestions? Could It be leaking seal somewhere?
