1995 3.8 Starting issue

Hello and yes I am back.

I have been trying to trouble shoot this issue for the last couple of days and I have pretty much have gave up (For now).

-- Information --
My car broke down and would not start when I turned over the key. I have located several issues that have been resolved (New starter, CCRM, starter relay (Fuse Box), battery and even double checked all ground points and the issue is still playing.

Real Problem.

After replaced all parts within the area located about, there is still one that I haven't figured out. When I turn the key too the (on) position, my dashboard lights up like it's suppose too. However when I turn the key to engage the starter, the starter will engage twice and then I lose all power too the car until I reset the battery connections.

Once I have reset the connection, I get full power back to the car once more until I attempt to engage the starter again.

--My Resolution--

I was wondering if it is possible to put the starter on it's on isolated path with a external relay. I have asked around but no one seems to know the answer as most of the connections are tied into the fuse box.

If it is possible, how would I go about doing this without damaging or making something else mad

I'm sorry, if you were right, I'd agree with you.
