Default C5 Will not Start

Need Help,
I have a 2003 with 23400 miles on it and it was running fine. Went to start it and all I get is clicks on the inside of the car with no starter action. I read the forum and pulled my Ignition Switch. I followed the direction posted by bill (thanks Bill) and it Ohmed out good. It looked good with really no burn marks. I reinstalled it. I get all dash lights but when I turn it over to the Starter position, all lights go out like it has a bad ground. I pulled the cables clean and retighten, checked battery and it is fully charged. I jacked the car and turned on the key on. Jumpered the purple wire to the hot wire and the engine turned over, started and immediatley died. I did this several times with the same result.

Any Ideas would be helpful.
