When I suggested long-term storage, I was indeed told that I needed to
disconnect the battery. I didn't want to lose coverage if something had
happened to the car.....and I had NOT disconnected the batter.
On the road again,

Probably the anti-theft system thinks you are trying to steal the car ...
among other things I believe it disables the starter circuit.
Try locking the door with the key and then unlocking... maybe this will
reset the system.
An alternative would be to remove the anti-theft relay and insert a jumper
wire in it's place. This is what I did to my 89 100 cause I didn't care
about the anti-theft feature and it was acting up ... intermittent no-start
condition due to an electrical glitch somewhere in the anti-theft system
(maybe in the relay itself).
BTW ... are you serious re: the insurance company caring whether the
battery was disconnected? Did they actually tell you that or were you just
thinking it couldn't hurt?
