to be more specific... on the positive post I installed a battery cut-off switch (with a level that opens and closes for theft protection) it stands a little higher so with my weight it touched that point on the lever. Also when I open and then close the positive post I hear a "click" and then my dash born lights work and the "key in ignition buzzer sounds" then when I turn the key I hear another "click" and then dash lights go off... the click I hear then seems to be coming from behind the glove box... could it bee the component located on the firewall just behind the glove box in the engine deptment? I also hear a "click when I open and close the battery lever in the vacum solenoid. part # ***** I TOOK

Ideally here your going to be looking at a fuse or fusible link issue of the car was working fine before grounding the positive terminal.
Magen turning the key to START are you getting a single click? Fast click? Cranking? Or nothing at all?
