On an SC the fuel pump should not run with the key on. If it does,
The cold start plug and the airflow sensor plugs are backwards Or the AFS is unplugged.

Lifted the car, turned out to be a loose yellow wire to the starter

Also slight oil leak

Hard to tell, but Chicago is one giant pothole)

But if i hit a pothole or bump as i was driving the car would have died on the spot?

I actually parked the car like I normally do in the garage and the next day no start

The car would run just fine with the yellow wire disconnected, just couldn’t start again.

Drove this morning, then parked the car and 4 hrs later no start

Lifted the car, starter wire was in place. I tapped the starter with a hammer, still no start

car wont start

I had a similar situation a few years back...
It was determined that the yellow start wire had a short somewhere between the ignition cylinder and the starter. To avoid replacing the 11 wire strand which is quite expensive, my mechanic (skilled and very knowledgeable) replaced the yellow wire in each section of the strand by disconnecting the original yellow wire in each section of the strand and installing a fresh and proper size yellow wire from the ignition to the engine compartment end of strand (LHS WALL) and from there to the starter...
Never had an issue since...

I think the starter is on the right side, unfortunately i may not have enough room to jack it up.. too close to the wall

Looks like a crime scene....

Sorry to sound alarmist but I want you to please be safe!

Excellent! Thanks for putting my mind at ease. Thanks for the offer! I'll keep an eye on your ads

Good luck on the car. I hope it's something simple again.
