Re: Finally~Yesterday I jumped in, turned the key and click, just as i was about to get out the car, i just turned the key again, it started.
So now I'm thinking, the fuse pulling was just exercise, the starter is doing the exact same thing the old one did. Multiple key turns to get it to catch. Once it catches it always turns over so how could this be a starter issue?

Might be ignition switch. Good catch ranger. My dad's s-10 had that problem.

Well guess what.. compound problem!
There was a short in the fuse box (which ignited one morning b4 work) AND a bad starter from EBAY. (Remind me never to do that again...)
Anyway, the galloping ghost is back on the move..
thanks guys for all your input

Continuing with an added statement; Ranger you really are on top of things. I just repaired my 94 deville which was doing the same exact thing. It was the ignition switch. I finally had it replaced and they also replaced the cylinder. Now, with Purlwhyte's problem; they may have told him it was the fuse box, but I think they replaced the ignition switch which eventually goes to the fuse box. I think this thread should be tagged, because I've read many people having same or simular problems and it would eliminate frustrations to end up with the same solution. Agreed, good catch Ranger.

I was there... the fuse box had white smoke coming from it. I had been saying all along that something in the fuse box wasnt right.
Everytime I pulled fuses the car would work again.. my ignition is untouched and i waitied at the shop for the fuse box and starter to be repaired there was no ignition switch replacement. similar issues.. different fixes.
