Had my battery tested at autzone after it failed to start, bought a new one, popped it in, it started once, turned it off, and now it wont start. When I turn the ignition, it clicks once but nothing

Battery and body terminal connectors clean ??

You would not be the first to find the starter motor positive cable or solenoid hot wire loose at the motor itself - and that's under the intake manifold.

Had it towed to Bill Mccurly GM here in Pasco, (less than a mile up the street from me), turns out the positive battery bolt on that cable was stripped, along with that I had the sensor for my air intake fixed, it broke when I attempted my hg project. Also had an ac vacuum line fixed that also broke during my hg attempt.

And as a courtesy they detailed my interior and gave her a thorough wash.

Sounds like excellent service! I wonder if my Cadillac dealer will do the same for me, I dropped it off yesterday for a new waterpump, alternator, stabalizer link and fuel level sensor ground
