I pull the battery out to clean up and paint the batterry base, I put the battery back and
my car star up but do not keep running. Its was running perfect before.

Need to Relearn the idle. Start the vehicle and hold it at 2000 rpms until the radiator fan cycles then it should now be reset . This is the next step. Let me know if this works .

I t have to be another way , car just star an die, is no way to hold it at 2000 rpms.
If the car starts and dies then this can be a faulty battery cable or ground . It can also be a faulty alternator . No issues prior to painting the battery case ?If not where the ground is is not making a good ground do to the paint. Scrap the paint off where the ground goes and it should be ok .
