Default 04 2.2 engine doesnt start after clutch replace

ok so i have posted other topics about dropping the tranny and putting it back it

this is for a 2004 cav 2.2 manual car


i did everything and now engine turns over but doesnt start the engine light stays on while engine is cranking

what did i miss? all i can think of is a have extra wire harness from of car its a 2 wire it has a Purple wire and yellow wire i have no idea where that plugs into??? its basicly right in the bunch of wires at the fan

and all i could think of is that one wire i had to put on the stud of of the transmission thats right behind the rad fan motor it has bumps on it to make better connection would that cause anything?

what can i check that would have caused this

and there are no engine codes as engine was running fine before i dropped tranny plus i had disconnected battery

The check engine light is an indication something is not working right. You need to go back through everything to make sure everything is connected.
