I would suspect a bad starter solenoid that you shorted across. I would use a test light or multi meter to probe the wire leads that go to the starter solenoid and if they test good, replace the starter/ solenoid as an assembly.

more then likely it is you Vehicle anti Theft System..... it says a signal to start your starter and your fuel injectors...... that's why it dies right after

How many rotations per minute does a car starter turn?

. "The ratio of the number of teeth on the ring gear and the starter drive pinion gear is usually between 15:1 and 20:1. This means the starter motor is rotating 15 to 20 times faster than the engine. Normal cranking speed for the engine is about 200 rpm. If the starter drive had a ratio of 18:1, the starter would be rotating at a speed of 3,600 rpm. If the engine started and was accelerated to 2,000 rpm, the starter speed would increase to 36,000 rpm. This would destroy the starter motor if it was not disengaged from the engine."
