Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,
Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...
Initially, the description of "...jumo ign switch terminals it starts..." is critical as the possibilities are:
• new ignition switch has an issue;
• wiring and/or connector fault.
Please post back how many and what are the colors of the wires to the ignition switch.

Appreciate the additional information.
Please confirm the 6 terminals:
• 1st White/Red;
• red/white + another red/white;
• red / black + another red/black;
• black + another black;
• brown + another brown.
Disconnect the connector from the new ignition switch. With the use of a multimeter, which wires of the connector has +12 please?
Using the Ω function of the meter, which terminals of the new iognition switch has continuity when turned ON only? ...when turned to START?
