After a few dies and restarts I now know I need a new battery as it ran dead again. Could the battery be the problem? I searched a bit but did not find an answer. You guys are always great!! Would someone please throw me bone? Thanks for any help anyone has to offer.

I put a new battery in today and everything is perfect. I guess not having a good battery will cause idle issues. Thank you very much for all that helped me. BTW the battery that was in there was BMW and build date was July 08 and shipped date was Sep 2008.

Happy New Years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
