Dandy. It does indeed sound like you're on the right track. To get the car home, locate the starter relay and jump it. Be sure it's in "park". I'm not familiar with the style of relay GM used back then. Can you find the starter relay and describe it to me? By 1998 they were in an under-hood fuse box, they were about 1 1/4" square, and had four terminals arranged in a square. If you have the metal relays that bolt to the inner fender, GM used some connectors that made jumping them real hard but not impossible. The easiest thing to do with those is to pop the cover off, reconnect it, and squeeze the contact to crank the engine. You can do that with the newer square style too but those are easier to jump with a piece of wire or stretched out cotter pin.
