96 xj won't start

I can get it to start by bypassing the starter relay so the battery is good, starter is good and it does run.  the dash lights dim when I turn to start. swapping starter relays didn't fix anything.   tried bypassing the nss as I had seen online but with no luck.  even unplugged the screwy aftermarket radio with no change.  is a 96 new enough to have some sort of disabler?  it's been sitting a while with no battery in it, but it's not the first time that's happened and it's never done this before.

no need.  I'm positive it's yellow because that was the one that was disconnected. :D  seems a previous owner installed a new ignition switch and hacked up the harness in the process.  the yellow wire simply popped out of a butt connector.  good as new(-ish). :thumbsup:
