Thank you for the donation. And the novel. Lol
First thing to do is get that starter checked, go back over all the electrical connections and make sure that nothing has been missed, getting the electrics wet is not a help so I would run a scan and check for any unresolved fault codes, not all codes will set a mil, contrary to popular belief, there are no old school tricks that can randomly cause these problems, I woulds be doing a current draw test as well to find the voltage draw down problem and get that sorted, as with these cars and the electronics involved, you do need everything working for you and not against you, your alt charge rate should be up around 13.5 V min, so this is a concern as well, also get the battery fully charged and load tested to prove it is in good condition, start here.
