I hope you didn't fry something along the way.  I was a bit worried when
you started applying 12V power to lines of unknown purpose.  You know,
electrical work should not be taken lightly.  You should really have
started by studying the wiring diagram of the car so that you know
exactly what you'd be doing, and plan accordingly.  You should also have
a volt-ohm meter handy to check things out along the way.  Random guessing
and trial-and-error is absolutely not the way to go.

Sorry to hear about your problems but I think it's time you do some
good debugging with a wiring diagram and a volt-ohm meter.
