Exclamation 03' Sport having problems starting

Hey all. Newbie here. My 03' Wrangler Sport 4.0L has had a problem starting. I checked the fuses to the starter etc, took them out checked them, put them back in, and just made sure all the fuses were good. Syptoms seemed to indicate a dead battery. Tried to start it and got nothing. No lights on gauges, gauges went all haywire, no clicking nothing. After checking the fuses and stuff and plugged them back in, it started and ran just fine till a couuple days ago. Same problem now, however new symptom is when I got it to start, i had to keep my foot on the gas or it would die. Eveuntually after about 5 minutes of starting it and warming it up, she stayed idling, and I was able to drive it. Now it starts fine, runs fine like nothing happened. Any of you had the same problem or have any suggestions? Dont know much about cars so any help would be good. Thanks. You can email if you like.
