Did you have the vehicle in run mode when you did the purple wire trick? If you have a normal key, rotate key like you do to normally start and let go of the key. It will rotate back one notch to the run position. Then do the PWT.

If you have a start button and do not use the key to start your car, push the button and hold for 15 or 20 seconds. As you hold the button, the vehicle will cycle through accessory mode and then run mode. While it is in run mode do the PWT.
Hope this helps. You probably already were doing this, but trying to help. Good Luck.
