Need help after jeep fire

Hi everyone. I had a little fire this morning in my jeep. Lucky for me there was a cop behind me on the freeway with a fire extinguisher. Long story short the pigtail going to the driver door was what caught on fire. I cut it off and now my problem is the security won't let the car run. I tried pulling all the "security fuses" and didn't help. Can someone point me in the right direction to keep it running? Thanks.

Ok, thanks I'll post the results and a pic of the pigtail. Any reason why it would catch fire like that?

If they are not too burnt up, the wires that are labeled "key switch" are the two in question. Best of luck!

Fixed, thanks guys. That being said there is a yellow wire, a purple/white wire and 2 purple/yellows wires. I thought it was two wires, the purple/white and the yellow wires. I got it working on the last purple/yellow wire of course.
