Car Batteries

Why would a car die when my foot lifted off of gas pedal after being jumped and battery level is good and car is warmed up?

possibly your throttle position sensor is bad or not set

properly. Take the connections off the battery, clean then, and

wait 15 mins to reinstall. During that time make sure the throttle

position sensor is in the idle position, as in closed. Rehood the

battery, tighten the connections then crank. The computer may need

to relearn the electrical signals from the TPS and if you had your

foot on it when trying to start it with a dead battery, you may

have sent an errant message to the computer about the location of

the throttle blade.
