Default Starting issue

The car had a starting issue every now and then, I would just get a click of the starter and nothing else. My wife would have to push start me when it would happen.
I changed the battery first, thinking it was the culprit. I went with a MELE mount and light weight battery.

Soooo the battery wasnt the issue...I changed my starter. It wasnt the starter either....I cleaned my engine bay grounding.. still nothing. I remembered seeing a viper alarm paper in the initial paper work I got with the car. I didnt have the viper alarm key fob...I pulled down the dash plastic dash panel under the steering wheel. found some jankey wiring from the pervious owner. hes a monkey...
