Mine did the same thing. I took the air filter off and there was about a half inch of gas sitting in the bottom, so I just soked that up started the wheeler and covered the air hole w my hand and hit the gas. After that it started working. It died when I did that and then it started right up.

Fuel pump or filter possibly

the idle control sensor could be bad give these websites a try and if all fails stop by your local GM dealership and ask for the manager and he can tell you what is going on if that fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for you car wish you the best Michigan Man.

My car idles high like at 6 rpm n i dont even gotta hit the gas to get it to go n to get it to stop COMPLETELY i have to shovee it in neutral while its in motion, it wont stop idling high and i ride the...

Well all cars idle at 550 rpm to 700 rpm depends on engine but it sounds like you throttle body is not shutting down .
yes could be idle sensor or you could have a hose come off the intake manifold so bypassing the body valve, ,check throttle cable for free play when not going..check for hoses off /crackedand leaking air/or hose off the engine block either big or small ..

Sub woofer

are your subs bridged? if they are try unbridging them... if that doesnt work try finding a better ground, and if neither of those work turn the amp down while music is playing until the palsating stops and the speakers are just hitting...

Sub not hitting constantly

The big speakers have wires from the frame to the voice coil. After longer use at higher volumes (or longer travel), the wire can fracture, and make contact only some of the time..line on a bounce or knock.

System not playing

Sounds like the output transistors on the amp are blown. Were you slammin when it stopped or how did you find out it stopped working. It could be the sub failed then caused the ap to go which is why you get a little something from the JL.
