possibly your battery is gettin' around ten years old and needs to be replaced the 5 or 6 tries tells me that AMPERAGE ain't gettin' thru~ a Solid connection to a Fresh battery with brand new cable clamps or wirebrushed till shiny and you will have restored power...do not forget the cable to the block as well...you need SOLID power~

By messing with that screw you have changed the output to the ECM so it thinks the throttle is off idle but the engine is not running and it only see a crank signal, so it looks at other inputs and tries to average the readings, but if they are too far out of the specified range sometimes the system just shuts down or goes into limp in mode. Now you need to plug in the ECM Diagnostic port and using the live data setting reset the screw back to factory specs and then check for any other sensors that might be out of specs and repair those before even starting the engine, after those repair are completed, you can use the scan tool to clear the computer, then leaving it hooked up start the engine and run the total relearn procedure, all the while keep an eye out for any readings that might venture off the norm, after that and everything looks good and no more code disconnect the scanner and you should be good to go.
