Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).
When you jumped it and it started, it stalled when the headlights were turned on. Were the jumper cables still connected or removed?
Thanks, ***** ***** vehicle is running the alternator supplies all the voltage needed for all the electrical systems and the battery stores that voltage. In this case it looks like your alternator is not charging the battery with enough voltage and that is why it stalled when you turned the lights on which drew more volts than the alternator was putting out. Do you have a digital volt meter so we can do some diagnostics?

Hello again Chris here,
I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you're not pleased, or need more help.
Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.
