Starts up, idles for a sec, then dies if not given some gas>?...

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to this site, but I've had my jeep for two years now and really haven't had too many problems till now... Problem is pretty much what I described in the title... any suggestions?

Check your battery...some vehicles "forget" how to idle when the battery gets low. If that is good, check your IAC (idle air controller) on the throttle may be dirty.
