    Occasionally dies at stops

    I’ve got a 2003 DD SVT 5.9 2wd.
    Occasionally when it comes to a stop it dies. The check engine light is not coming on.
    All I’ve done so far is clean the throttle body, tps and iac valve and it is still having the problem.
    Any input is greatly appreciated!

    I would start with the battery. How old is it, and has it been load tested? Weak batteries can account for many oddities, including that. I had that happen myself actually.

    x2 on the battery.
    The electronics in these Dodge vehicles do strange things if the battery is not 100%

    +1 battery.. check the date code, if it is more than 4 years old just replace it.. don't even bother testing it..

    Even though it starts right back up, no problem?

    Yes.. X5 on the battery. Have it load-tested at minimum.
    This is a very common cause of the symptoms. I realize how absurd that sounds, but it has a history of driving FCA owners crazy.

    If the battery is even slightly suspect, the PCM can't keep idle, causing the dying you're seeing.
    My 01 and my 03 both had these exact symptoms as the battery started failing.
    New battery, feathered the throttle for about 5 minutes, drove about 10 miles and it was perfect again.
    PCM re-learned proper idle and throttle positions.
