The early GM products would build up restance in the wire that went from the alternator to the starter. The easy cure for this is to install a 10 guage wire directly from the Alternator Batt. lug directly to the battery postive post. Do this using the correct end connectors.. do not just wrap the wire around the termanel. This was a big problem on these cars. especially the Diesel cars. Always disconnect the battery ground terminal before you work on this.

How full do you keep your fuel tank ? If you repeatedly let the fuel level low ,this will cause premature failure ! Need's to stay around 1/2 tank or fuller , keeps fuel pump lubricated . So if you run your vehicle with a 1/4 tank or less all the time , this will cause fuel pump problems .Could have a resistance problem in the electrical circuit ! Does the connector at the pump look burnt when changed ?

If it is out of time too much between the cam and crank, you stand a good chance of bending valves. A stuck lifter can cause a push rod to bend which will produce a noise and a cylinder to not work. Engine won't idle or rev up well when this happens.

There is no such button. This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/

There isn't one as far as I know.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check for a fuel injector pulse.
Your obd1, you should be able to check for applicable trouble codes, if there are any.

I use a set of allen type drivers on a 3/8 drive breaker bar or ratchet. Most parts stores sell a set of 5 or 6 sizes.

I'm sure there won't be a separate fuses for each window, therefore the cause will be the drivers door switch. Also check for corrosion on the terminals.
