Check the starter, it may have a short in it, causing it to short out the whole system when you turn the key. When you pull the battery cable, it will allow the drive to release, thus reseting the starter.

those were side post batterys, remove the negative and positive terminals at battery. Clean the connections, on the cables( the flat spot) retighten them and should be ok. GM had the same problem .
