WHAT WOULD CAUSE MY TRUCK TO CRANK, FIRE UP THEN DIE AFTER CHANGING THE BATTERY?

2002 Chevrolet Suburban • 167,000 miles

Truck is running fine I start it up this morning and I notice the doors dont lock when I put it in gear, the fuel gauge isnt working, ses light is on, abs light is on and the battery light is on also. So I take the battery and alternator and have them tested, alternator is fine and the battery has a dead cell in it so.I replace the battery (correct for 2002 burban). Truck starts great, doors lock in gear now, the ses, abs and battery lights are off and the fuel gauge is working. Everything is working normal and truck runs great. Ok here is the problem: about an hour later I go to leave in the truck and I start the engine, its fires up then dies. And that is all it will do now. I turn the key, it cranks great, the engine fires and then dies, fuel pump is working and I have pressure at the rails. Please help!

Unfortunately GM anti-theft systems are real effective at keeping owners out of their vehicles. I only know a few of the common problems like broken wires in the tilt steering column, but there is a relearn procedure that involves leaving the ignition switch on for multiple ten-minute intervals. KHLow2008 might be able to describe it better. You can also try disarming it by unlocking the passenger door with the key or by using a remote key fob. If either of those work, you might suspect a broken wire between the driver's door hinges going to the switch on the lock cylinder.
