See if it jump off with jumper cables and another auto running or booster box. Chime back in to let me know if it turned over or what happens.

Little black box looks like a large relay under the dash & steering column. I believe its called the ignition starter relay either way my 89 did the same as yours and I could not figure it out and shop charged me to replace this gizmo and it started right up.
