Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a couple things going on depending on what actually happened and what exactly was replaced.

If the starter never engaged at all then the problem isn't related to the lock cylinder replacement. There are several things that will prevent lack of starter engagement and electrical testing would be required to determine what is wrong.

If it actually started and died three times and then locked the starter out then the SKIM system has not validated the key. If you do have SKIM and installed an aftermarket lock cylinder that came with a key that would explain this - that's not a correct part for the vehicle. The engine can only be started with a valid SKIM key.

What was the original problem with the vehicle?
