Did you charge the battery in the vehicle or did you take it out ? If charged in vehicle removed battery terminals and clean then reinstall.

Battery charged out of car & terminals were clean. Ended up having it towed to the shop to get looked at. Will let you all know what the problem was after we find out tomorrow. Thanks for all the input though. It was much appreciated.

Well, we finally got our car back after having it towed to 3 different shops! Ended up at the GM dealership. Starter was bad and there was a bad relay that was shorting out in the fuse box up by the engine. Thanks again for the input. Maybe this will help the next person with this problem :-)
