That's called the "start lock relay".
When all conditions are met, the relay allows the car to start.

The main things you're bypassing are the clutch switch and transponder pickup coil, IIRC.
I'll get out the shop manuals this weekend and delve deeper, but you can start by looking at those two things.
The clutch switch is easy enough to check with a DVM. The transponder coil is around the ignition and since you were in that area, it might be the more likely culprit (wires got unplugged, pinched or the coil moved and now is not communicating with the pill in the key head).
