Hi and welcome to FixYa!
This is a common issue on this car. You definitely have a faulty IAC (idle air control) valve. If the IAC is faulty the car is hard to start, may experience an erratic idle or just stalls when depressing the brakes. The IAC is located on the throttle body so you will need to have it replaced to resolve the issue.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

This could be an anti theft security issue. This happens all the time in GM's. The anti thefts are known to fail and cause the car to not start, stall while driving, or start for 1-5 seconds and then die. A good indication that the security is failing is if you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a padlock thru the window. This link explains the problem, symptoms, and some DO IT YOURSELF solutions. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

It sounds like the vehicle has stopped charging the battery.Charge your new battery first and see if it starts,or put a volt meter across the 2 teminals and read the voltage ,if it is below 10.6 volts the powertrain control module and the transmission control module will nt funtion due to low voltage.The alternator has an external regulator located in the powertrain control module,which regulates the voltage at 13.6 volts.If this is the case you need to test the alternator.You can take it off and take it to an auto parts store(they will test it at no charge),or you can get a scanner and full field the unit.Start there and let me know because the underhood fuse panel(pdc)could also cause problems.thank you Ramundoo
