Cold start problem - 06' 4.7L

2006 4.7L 76K miles, 29 degrees F this morning...

Turned key, let it ding THREE times like I always do, radio was playing and all of a sudden I hear a "pop" in the speakers while turning the key to start it.

It ran rough for 2-3 seconds and died. Started again, wouldn't hold idle. Started again, kept my foot on the gas for 10 seconds and it finally held idle and I went on my way to work.

TPS/IAC are new. There is some corrosion on the NEGATIVE battery terminal. Could this cause it? Thanks for any ideas

Yeah, very common for Chrysler products to do that. They'll start but not stay running without help.
