Default 1996 Honda Accord won't start?

Recently, I misplaced my alarm key for my 1996 Honda Accord. I still had the actual keys to the car, so I opened the doors to the vehicle, and logically, the alarm went off. I called my father, and he proceeded to explain to me to pull a "White Wire" from beneath my steering wheel area, beside the hood latch. There wasn't a white wire, but I explained to him that there was a thick Yellow wire that hung low. He proceeded into telling me to pull that wire. The alarm didn't stop all at once. I continued to mess with some of the wires beneath the steering wheel area, the alarm stopped. I put my key into the ignition and the alarm starts back up.

It didn't take too long for my father to just remove the wire that feeds the power to the alarm altogether from the vehicle. So I process into starting the vehicle, but now it won't start. The lights still turn on, even the radio, but the ignition won't start. The yellow cord is still unplugged, and I'm not for sure if it had a plug to begin with, or if it was just a loose wire. But the car won't start, and there isn't a place (to my knowledge) of where this loose yellow wire is supposed to go. I Googled the wire situation quickly, and it said that the wire may have something to do with the ignition, but I'm not sure and I'm not trying to screw things up further. Does anybody have any suggestions?

The security alarm was probably installed to prevent the vehicle from starting after being tampered with like you just did. I guess it worked.
