    I don't know about the hazards but it sounds like VATS is enabled. Have you tried the resistor method?

    I will also check all your wiring again to make sure there is no frayed or pinched wires.

    Sounds like a ground wasn't hooked up. There are two straps that go from the block to the frame (one on each side). Check those first.

    Isn't there a ground that bolts to where the starter goes?
