There is no ground wire for the starter.

And the small wire (probably purple) is not supposed to have power after you let go of the key

Yes it is a purple/white stripe wire, but most likely I think it wont stay runnin because security light on dash is blinking

That would do it.

I don't have any experience with resetting the security on a GM.

You should post a new questions describing what the car is doing and that the security light is flashing.

In the mean time, i'll do some snooping for an answer too.

I've got some more info

General instructions on pass-lock relearn:

So the engine cranks but it wont start? IS the security light flashing? If so try this
GM PASS LOCK RELEARN- Ignition to "run" position, try to start and let key return to "run" position
Approx ten minutes security light will go off
Turn key "off" and wait 5 seconds
Repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 relearns.
Turn key off, then start it
