TJ Stalling problem!!! HELP

Battery died last night because I accidentally turned on and left my interior lights on... All day today my car has been stalling when it comes to a stop, will idle at about 1-200 rpms, shakes like if I dropped the clutch to fast, it is a standard, and then it'll turn off, have no idea why.... Anyone have the same problem? Also, not sure if this is posted in the right thread, sorry if it's not!

you may want to try charging the battery up and make sure your alternator is charging properly. once you have done that and still have issues, you will have to dig a little deeper. not sure if this helps, but I would start there.

Battery, alternator, crank sensor, ignition coil would be things to check. If you know you killed the battery I would start there.

Put a battery charger on the battery. TJ's need good voltage or they tend to do this.

Check the battery and replace it.

I had the same issue after I left my lights on and killed the battery. I jump started it but it would barely run after I jumped it. I had to rev the engine constantly to keep it from dying. After about 15 minutes of driving/not letting the revs drop, it would finally idle and take the charge from the alternator. I replaced the battery and never had a problem since.
