Will not power up starter and no shift indicator light

After replacing lights in the cluster, I now have no power engaging the starter. Engaging the silonoid at the starter Will start the engine but only for three or four seconds then everything shuts down. All fuses are in tact with the exception of in line fuses that I don't have access to. The system acts as if it were in theft mode that still doesn't explain the shift selector lights not working. I'm still thinking maybe a fusible link somewhere has blown but have no idea where to find them.
So to recap; starter is good, the battery is good, fuses are good, it will start when jumped at the solenoid, but then shuts down after a few seconds . The key turns on everything except engaging the starter. I am stumped !!!! For the record this is a 2005 Pontiac Montana base model.

did you replace the lights in the cluster with the battery connected?
do your brake lights work?
