Just a guess but there are two wires to your coil. One that is on while you start and a second that is like a resistor that is hot while the key is on. Check the later. Just a guess based on my mistake once.

That should be correct you have a wire that is hot when the key is in the crane postion. And a second wire that has a resistor that stay's hot when the car is strated. The resistor has blown. Which will not let the car run when you let off the key. The wire goe's ethier to the starter or the black wiring box by the master cylinder.
