Engine Performance problem
2003 Chevy Venture 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles

I recently replaced my idle air control valve. When I replaced it, I cycled the engine on for 10 seconds and off for 10 seconds and then started the car. No problems. Recently I pulled the ECM fuse for 30 seconds to reset the engine codes - I plugged it back in and now the car will not idle. The engine turns over but then immediately dies. If I hold the accelerator in while starting it runs fine, but as soon as I remove my foot from the accelerator the car dies. What did I do wrong?
