Hey there, considering the symptoms and the recent repairs you made I would start by checking the fuses at the interior fuse panel.

I would also check the wires at the electrical portion of the ignition switch to see if you pinched or damaged the start wire.

Lastly did you replace the electrical portion of the switch (inside the column on the back of the tumbler assembly) or just the mechanical portion that the key goes into.
