    if I turn the key it starts right up. The second I let go of the key it dies. If I hold the key all the way on it will stay running, but obviously make the little grinding noise indicating it's unhappiness that I am still turning the key after it is already started.

    I figured it was ignition switch so I replaced. This was not the problem. Other ideas?

    Sounds like 1 of the diodes in the engine harness might be blown, maybe just a loose connection at the engine harness connector.
