Sound's like your factory security ( If you have a Transponder ) is preventing your vehicle from running.

Or it could be a problem with the ignition line. You said you shorted something under the dash right? If thats the case then it sounds like there is an issue on the ignition line on the car. Check under the hood for big ass fuses or fusable links.

I think most transponders will start for a second or two before cutting off. But I'm not sure about your car. Check to make sure your getting fuel.

Well, you learned a very valuable lesson. I'm not sure what the lesson was, but I'm almost kinda sure you learned it.
