    Wow, Jan 25 and no replies yet???? Are you 100% sure the battery cables are not crossed, seen that before! Is the engine even turning over, that's the 1st step!

    Sounds like my '93 splash when I got it. Bad ground at ecm relay was my problem. There do you have a loose 2 pin round connector coming off the negative battery cable? That should be plugged into something underneath the fuse box in the engine bay.

    Does it start in neutral? The "wiggle the key to shift" issue may be lock cylinder getting wore out and messing with alignment of the lock pin for the column shifter. Do you mean 30 seconds as in you crank it for 30 seconds? In that case bad check valves in fuel pump most likely, or leaky injectors flooding the intake.
