How are you? I have an issue.... I mistakenly drained my battery, then I got a jumpstart and drove the rover to test it out and have the alternator charge it and it performed flawlessly. I drove it for about 5 miles each way and then parked it. I then shut if off and tried to start it back up and this is what hapened:

10 miles of driving will not charge a dead battery. Was the jump connections proper. + to + and neg to metal engine ground not battery. Seems you may have to totally unfasten battery and while leads are disconnected, touch + and - together for a few seconds and then refasten to battery. + first the ground, never unhook + before ground. This sometimes resets computer. If it doesn't work you will need to run a diagnostics. Charge battery fully before running. You cannot charge a dead battery with an alternator without running for a few hrs. Alternators are not a charging device only a method of maintaining the proper voltage to keep systems running and replacing the charge that is used.

That's interesting that you said something regarding the computer. I have taken the old battery and purchased an optima red top battery with a 800CCA. I installed it and it still did the same thing. In the case I accidently reset the computer, is there anything else I can do. Here is what I've done since install in the new battery:

1. Take off the MAF, start truck: same thing. Reconnect back.

2. Took off the TPS, start the rover, same issue...reconnect

3. Took both battery leads off for 10 mins, same issue, reconnect

I'm now thinking the BECM may be damaged.

Even after I idle for a min and then put it in drive it will move forward a little and then die
