Your problem seems to be a faulty solenoid. The solenoid is a little monster that lives on top of the starter motor, and its job is twofold. Firstly, it supplies full battery power to the starter motor, and secondly it drives a gear on the starter to engage with the engine flywheel.
Now, your problem. The first guess could be the ignition switch, but fitting a toggle seems like a fairy tale answer. Check the starter solenoid to see if there is a frayed wire on the thin wire that connects to the starter, or possibly a frayed wire on the battery cable that is shorting to the small connector. Otherwise, I have seen the terminal of this small wire actually become loose and turn in the direction of the battery cable, which is also connected to the solenoid. A short here will cause the problem you are describing.
Finally, the solenoid could have a short circuit inside the body, which means replace the solenoid.

I would start by checking the resistance of all of the injectors. I saw this happen last week, I had a new injector that was reading low ohms and it was making two cylinders misfire. Replace the new one with a another new one and both cylinder ran good. I dont know what the ohm value of your injectors should be but I would want at least 10 ohms, All of them will be about the same except the bad one..I did a web search on your problem and it was covered at several places.

Check the battery cables. If it is the braided type it may look good but not connecting like it should, Try connecting another earth cable from the battery negative to the same point as the original. Make sure that the contact area is clean and finally check every point where cables contact to. It is important to work on these points with the battery removed, in order to avoid short circuits.

I just had a similar issue with my Colorado. It turned out to be the BCM(body control module). I don't think yours has one but the ECU might control the same systems. Check your fuses and if those are good look at your wiring diagram and what the common denominator is between those systems. My bet is it's the computer.

Does it turn over, or don't turn over at all? If it does turn over, then my guess would be the control module. Because, when the module gets hot, it will not start until it cools off. If it does not turn over, then I would have to say the starter is bad. I sincerely hope that this helps you. Best wishes.
