My 2006 will start then just die I think its something to do

Customer Question

My 2006 Monte Carlo will start then just die I think its something to do with the theft derrent system what can I do to get it started
JA: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?
Customer: I just went out and got a new battery today
JA: Are you fixing your Monte Carlo yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Well first I thought it as the battery and every morning id have to use the jump box to start it and usually once it turned over and even attempted to start everytime it usually would. But the only way I can get it to do anything is if I unhook the battery cable then wait for a min then put it back on and the first time I turn the key it starts but then immediately. Dies and when I try the key again there nothing but a click
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no
