Oh. I understand. I didn't know the lead in story. Have you tried to jump / bypass to see if the starter / solenoid will work to crank the engine? I should think as long as the column / wiring are compatible it would basically be plug n play. If you're pretty sure the column and ignition switch are functioning properly I would then go through standard start system troubleshooting procedures. Also the neutral safety start switch could cause the symptoms you are experiencing. Again, standard start system troubleshooting would find that problem.Someone tried stealing the car and ripped out the ignition parts so we needed a new column and lock cylinder but the ignition switch on the column was missing a piece so we had to replace that.
