Default Trouble starting/running '95 Supercharged 3800 (update!)

Sorry to bother all of you with my cry for help as I just figured it out and it starts and runs great!
Here is what I did. Last year when I first wired everything up temp (a real rats nest) I had everything right, and, of course, it started/ran OK.

Then I went to work runn'n/rout'n wires permanantly. I have a bank of circuit breakers for 'Hot', 'Run', and 'Run/start'. I mistakely routed the injector 1039 power wire to 'Run' instead of 'Run/start'. Of course, the reason it would run with a shot of fuel from my squirt can is, it would fire up on (my) prime, then when I would release the key to the 'run' position, the injectors would get power and start working!

I have been trying to get this right (off and on) for about a week. I finally plead for help, then right away figure it out... go figure. Seems as though I do some of my better work with a critical eye looking over my shoulder, which is how it seemed after I posted my plea, so thanks for the help!

For some people putting pen to paper (or typing) gets the subconscious mind working and we often times solve our own problems. Good job.
