Angry e36 3181s wont crank

Hi all, Hopeing someone can help me out. I just did a water pump and starter on my 93 318 coupe and also a drivers door handle. So i got it all together and it started perfect and ran like a top(found 3 vacuum/air lines with splits) then i pulled it back in the garage as i still had to put the door handle assembly back in the door,well as i leaned in to shut the key off i hit the lock knob and locked the door without the handle in so put the handle and door back together ,well now it wont crank at all and cannot figure it out. Not sure if somehow antitheft did something when i locked the door or what but hope someone has experience with this or knows how to fix as i really dont want to have to take strter back out,lol, that sucks!
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!

Take the battery connector off. Leave for an hour. This resets the computer.

Talking

Update- Was a bad solenoid on starter. Guess it just went at that time which made me think it was security related but new starter fixed it
