Have you checked the battery ground cable wherever it attaches to frame, block, chassis. (especially if when you jumped it and hooked the ground jump cable to the battery post instead of another ground on yours ..if you grounded it frame to frame this won't apply)....follow it the neg- big wire and see if it's loose or corroded. If automatic try neutral....guessing...

Thanks for the chart,the pre heat light doesn't come on when the key is turned to ignition,would that still relate to a bad ground?
