Well first have you charged your battery back up, if so then try to by pass the ingintion switch by just connecting the two main post of the colenoid with a piece or wire, this creates a direct wire basically from your battery to your starter, if still no luck you will need a new starter located more to the drivers side close to right under the pedels on the bottom side of the truck.

You need to have the alternator re-checked and be sure the wiring is clean & correct. If an alternator is working properly & wiring is correct, those batteries should be charging as you drive.

Battery wont charge and when i turn the key back it makes a clicking noise

that means the battery cables are dirty clean them
or the charge system is failing.
the clinking is the sounds of electronics going nuts, with too low a voltage to run.
can be 4 things.
  1. battery no good.
  2. cable to same green with corrosion.
  3. alternator (or related )bad.
  4. phantom drains, you charge battery and while asleep it dies.
forget all those odd symptoms, the battery right now is dead
fix that first, (cause )

Unhooked battery when hooked back up on the 2005 isuzu ascender vehicle idles low and dies when defrost or a/c is turned on

Common problem, will cost you about $8 and some time to fix yourself. Unhook the battery, remove the throttle body and clean it with sensor safe spray like Seafoam. When finished, hook battery back after clean throttle body is installed up and with all HVAC on off, driver around for a while so the computer relearns the newly cleaned tb.

These are indications of a dead battery. Have a load test done on the battery to check for a dead cell. check that the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight.

Wont start, wont turn over, no sound what so ever

check that the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight.. Batteries can read 12.5v on a multimeter but under load they die to virtually nothing. have a load test done on the battery as the indications are a bad cell

Location and difficulty level of cleaning the throttlebody

If I read this right, you changed the battery and now when you start it and turn on the AC the engine dies?
This is not a throttle body issue.

Sounds like your alternator to me. The alternator is not charging the battery so when you drive it, the battery is being drained. It can die even while you're driving. I would get the alternator checked and get a new one if necessary

Not Idleing right

First off,connect something to the cigaret lighter that has 12 volts,and make sure the lighter plug in socket is working,then remove the battery cables and clean the cable ends real good,like shiny clean,and the battery post.It sounds like the alternator is having a hard time charging the battery,and the ignition system requires a lot of volts,and amps just to run,when turning the fan on,the engine revs up,this tells me it is possibly causing the alternator to put out more volts.

Battery keeps dying?

clean the cables, if still not working, every time you finished using the car disconnected the negative cable from the battery. and then connected it back when about to use it again.
