JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a GM. The GM Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: i replaced a few other parts. the altinator and a few pulleys.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: looked for loose connections, and unplugged battery for 10 mins
JA: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The GM Mechanic will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the GM Mechanic should know about your GM?
Customer: the battery is brand new and works just fine. everything ran great until i replaced the check air valve
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the GM Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Can not access my database at this time. They must be updating the servers.

Sometimes when the battery is disconnected and the throttle body is dirty you will need to clean it. Try cleaning the throttle body out with carb cleaner and a rag or tooth brush.
