Car won't start... Please read
The car worked fine the night before when i got home around 10PM.
Woke up the next morning and when I turned the key the lighst on the panel come on but no crank. My security light comes on for 2 seconds then goes off with the air bag and check engine light. I'm hoping its not VATS but it does go off after a second.
After I turned the key I checked for fuel at the rail, I have fuel pressure.
My battery is reading 12.58V, I checked all the fuses under the hood in those 2 boxes. I even changed the relays for starter, fuel pump with the fans, no use. I wasn't reading any voltage on the fuses themselves to ground but the large leads going into the boxes(main power) to ground read 12V. Not sure if that might be the issue. Also inside I checked some fuses inside drivers side, I had voltage to ground on all of them except
3 STG WHL CNTRL 1A
13 STG WHL CNTRL 1A
Everything else had voltage to ground.
I had a turn up 4 days ago but the car ran fine after that. I have to goto work in like an hour but I'd like a few suggestions on what to check.
Thanks in advance, this is my 1st LS1 and I'm clueless on what to check

Well if you have no power to the main fuse box ( If I read your post correctly) then you have an issue with your 1) battery 2) Battery Post or terminals 3) your cables....ground or positive.....have you tried to jump it?

Ok I get home like 10 minsute ago and decide to try it again. I turn the key I can here my starter trying to engauge, I can hear the bendix hitting the flywheel.
So I turn in a few more times then it starts up. I turned it off and restarted again 3 more times and it starts up fine. I'm not totally happy due to i don't understand what I just done.
I've worked on marine starter systems before, could it be maybe the teeth weren't lining up proper to turn?
