    What kind of shape is your negative battery cable in? I had a truck with a bad cable and did the same thing. Make sure you have a good ground.

    Do you have a quick disconnect on your starter? I fried a plug in mine and the lights wouldnt even come on. That was a quick fix though.......after a week and a half of trouble shooting. Take a circuit tester and check the leads on the starter.
    Then again it could be your igniton switch. Not the lock but the switch on the inside of the dash.
