Mine is doing the same thing. My check engine light did finally come on and when a reader was put on it the code is P0505 on the reader. When I looked that up it said "Idle air control system". I phoned my mechanic and he said to bring it in next week before it turns into a more serious problem. So far it hasn't stalled, but it makes me nervous. I am on oxygen, so I don't want to get stuck somewhere if it breaks down. So it will be going in for sure.
Hope it isn't expensive as I am on disability.

These cars are known for having engine related electrical problems that can be difficult to track down. One dead sensor is sufficient to prevent start up .
It is possible that your problem had nothing to do with the jump start or battery replacement.
Without a full diagnosis anyone not able to test the vehicle will be guessing.
One thing I would do is to check your fuse panels for all engine related fuses such as fuel pump, ignition and fuel injection to ensure these fuses are sound.
Check all visible wiring carefully including your battery connections. Carefully disconnect and then re-connect the battery at both terminals.
Your best option is to have the car towed to a reputable repairer that is familiar with these cars so he can run a full check and isolate the problem.
Whether you have blown something in the course of jump starting the car is unknown.
In future, when jump starting these older vehicles always turn the headlights on and do not turn them off again whilst the vehicle is running until after the spare battery used for the jump start has been fully disconnected. Everything else should be off.
