Default 1997 Saturn SL starting issue

So I bought this car for a deal. It runs and drives but won't start sometimes. If you wiggle the wiring behind the fuse box, most of the time it will start. During this dance of electrical bs, the door locks click and make noise, all four doors, and the hazards flash like security has been turned on. I've unhooked several harnesses and have looked through wires for any I can see broken etc... what am I missing?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Pin F5 is burnt up, may possibly be able to tear it apart and fix it but the long-term fix is to not use the cigarette lighter outlet to power anything, ever and replace the fusebox hopefully with one that hasn't been used as a charger.
