If it was an old police vehicle it has probably got an ignition kill switch located somewhere. This will have to be removed. And the wiring put back to factory standards. If not an old police car you are not getting voltage to the starter which is a bad relay. Do you get a clicking sound when you try to start? If yes, have someone keep hitting the start and listen and look for a relay under the hood.

After some deep diagnosis with my Scan-tool, I have fixed the issue. Of all things, it was the Coolant Temperature Sensor. I was getting a PO118 code, so I looked up the sensor, graphed it with the scanner and saw that the sensor was flaking out. It would read an avg. temp. of 190 degrees, then all of the sudden drop to -40 degrees. This sensor adjusts the fuel/air ratio, thus explains my idle speed troubles. Basically, the sensor was giving too much fuel or "flooding" the engine. I have been driving for 3-4 days now and have had 0 problems since the replacement. BTW, the sensor is located by the thermostat and can be removed with an 11/16" deep-well socket. I bought the sensor for $15 at O'Reilly Auto parts. Anyway, hope this helps someone.
