Default Throttle body

While driving my car, it displayed a redused power message. The throttle body was very dirty. So I bought a new one instead of cleaning the old one. Put it on and tried to start the car. It would not start. It continues to just turn over and not start. The battery dies down and I have to put a charge on it. I have tried to figure out maybe it's a fuse but can't even find the correct fuse if any. Can someone please give some tips because I'm getting real frustrated with this. Thank you for any help.

I'm new to this forum as well as a new owner of an Equinox. I've read plenty of post of issues where they go into limp mode, seems to be the pcv system is stopped up which can blow the main seal. May not be your issues but I'd start reading up on it and wouldn't try to start until you figure something out. Do you have the 2.4 or the v6?
People should probably know that in order to better help you.

Thank you for your response. I didn't think to check into that. I'm going to research the pvc and see what happens. And I the 2.4. Thank you again.
