Default Problems with the Ram staying running

So last week I put my new exhaust on my V10 and it sounds super aggressive and has alot more pep... Been enjoying it alot and Saturday start up my truck and move it into the street to I could wash my wifes truck. Go to start it on Sunday and move it back into the driveway and I couldnt get her to stay running. She would turn over but as soon as I let off the ignition would stall right out. If I give her throttle as she turns over I can get her to stay running but as soon as I lift off the throttle she dies... Wont hold at idle at all. I was thinking it may be a throttle position sensor or something. I dont know if I could two foot it all the way to my mechanic... Might have to have her towed. Was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.
Thanks

Throttle body and IAC dirty? That can cause a running problem. Give them a good cleaning and if the problem exists, it's time to start looking for other causes.

Check your battery. It happened to me on a '96 Ram. It would start, but would not idle. I would even try to rev it and it would stumble and mis. This also happened to me on my wife's '06 Grand Caravan....same symptoms. According to a guy at the battery shop, this is common for Dodge's with shot batteries. Hope this helps ya.
