Thanks to all who wrote back. It's great to have such a great resource here 
on Audifans!!

I now have a another "new starter" and ignition. Believe it or not the 
replacement rebuilt starter I installed was bad somehow. I returned it this 
morning and got a refund and went to a different local autoparts store and 
installed theirs, also a Bosch rebuilt.. All is well and my car starts like 
a champ. In the process I became familiar with my steering column, under the 
driver's side dash, the switches on the pedals and fusepanel. I still like 
my car :)
