Hi there... Sounds life aftermarket work was done to your truck..... or it has drastically malfunctioned....... The electronics in your car were not made to be codependent upon the engine. Everything works in unison and has a job. So the electrical system shall have nothing to do with the engine warming up, if the engine does not start this would prevent starting the alternator and would not charge the battery, eventually the battery goes dead and you look for why, but I think your barking up the wrong tree on this one..... Maybe something else is happening that is coinciding with the ending warming up thats affecting your electrical system. It must be operating somewhat normal because the truck would not start if not, as for the engine IS dependent upon the electrical system and the electrical system is only partially dependent on the engine (the engine must run to run the alternator which charges your battery). If you asked me I would say you have a bad connection at your fuse box (if you do not have aftermarket work(if you do have aftermarket work start at your weakest connection)) or other faulty connection- I think your getting normal power but your accessories and instrument panel have a short somewhere, also the battery may have enough juice to start the engine but not to run the accessories until it runs a bit a charges a bit, you turn the truck off and it sits dying more so when you go to use it, theres only enough to start the truck? idk but this should give you a good start and good luck to you
2011 Dodge Ram...
Is The release handle suppose to pull towards you on a 2006 dodge stratus? My new used car. Other owners hit a deer so hoods dented a little.
Yes, pull toward you and it rotates in an upward arc. It will likely require 2 people to open. One person applying constant pressure to the hood release handle inside. The second person then momentarily pushes down sharply on the hood, at which point hopefully the release handle inside will move out/up and hood moves to first stage open position.
If the release lever won't move using above procedure, the mechanism is jammed and will likely require some experienced help.
If the release lever moves, then mechanism is functional and hood is merely caught and needs convinced to be open, think pry bar...while keeping release lever in open/up position. Of course once opened it may be difficult to close.

2008 Dodge Nitro - Heater blows but not hot air,
There is casting sand in it (the heater core) and its stopped up. I just fixed an 08 nitro for nothing. Remove the heater core hose closest to the motor at the firewall. Cut off a piece of garden hose about 4 foot long and slip it over the core pipe, so you can flush it out. Now remove the other hose but leave the hose attached to the core. You will be unhooking it downstream on another pipe by the exhaust. Now get an empty milk just to catch the antifreeze and sand. Use compressed air to blow the antifreeze out. I used a 10 gallon air tank with a blow nozzle(rubber tip). Get some hot water from the sink and fill it up through the garden hose and repeat the blowing out. Reverse hoses every other time you blow it out. You will see sand in your milk jug at the bottom. It only takes a teaspoon of sand to stop it up. When you stop getting sand your done but dont forget to top the heater core back up with antifreeze. Your done for free. Chrysler wanted $1200 to fix my daughters nitro and I did it for nothing. Works like new again. Jeep is the worst about casting sand left over from the block molding process and Nitro is just another Jeep. Also, you dont need to go crazy with the air. Just hold it in the hose with a fairly firm grip and gently give it a little air till you get the feel of it. Anyone can do this job and on the hose clamps I used a pair of short channel lock pliars and be gentle while you twist the hoses off. Take your time. I spent 1 1/2 hours doing this and its new again. Have a great day friend.
