With a bypass active, in what sequence are the wires connected (and then disconnected) to start and turn off the engine?

red (constant 12v) to purple; starts accessories and powers up green wire
green to black/blue; cranks starter

then when red stops being delivered to purple, the car shuts off

Basically, if the car had no alarm or transponder, whats the right way to hotwire it and then turn it off?

I used to know, but can't remember. Best thing to do is to grab a meter and check. Make a table of what each wire does at:
off
accessory
ignition
crank
