Went back to the car this morning and, just for fun, turned the key as usual--started right up!

Drove it home and re-started several times in the garage with no problem.

I also realized that my terminal box on the right fender is installed backwards, so I was jumping the wrong wires last night. (I've decided to chalk this up to the late hour & darkness and not my pathetic inability to interpret a photo.) The jump worked just as described today when I hit the correct wire terminals.

Other than checking all the electrical connections as described above, any other recommendations? Should I just drive the car as usual, or does this indicate I should consider replacing the starter or some other component?

Thanks again, all!
