steering wheel not locking

2008 Impala SS
I had an issue with the key not turning completely to release the key.
Found purple wire broken replaced the connector assembly.
Unfortunately I did not think to disconnect the battery before splicing in the wires.
Today my battery was dead dead dead.

I then noticed that my steering wheel was not locked.
The key works fine but the wheel does not lock.
I rechecked to be sure that I had wired it properly.
So evidently the lock solenoid is not functioning and must be hot all the time, draining the battery.
Could I have blown a fuse and this is causing it to stay hot?
Which fuses control the key functions and where are they located?
Any other ideas?
Thanks
Martin
