hey how are you

1- have all the fuse underhood been checked

2- Can you check the battery cables from battery to starter for being loose or corroded

3- the ignition switch could be causing this for sure ,but u said u replacing it so hopefully that will fix

4- Please check all ground point from engine to from for being loose

5- check the underhood fuse box wires going in to it for melting or burned spots

6-Battery Has 12 volts correct ?have you tried for 12 volts on battery with key in start position , do you still have 12 volts

Please let me know

Thank You
