Did you change only the ignition lock cylinder? In some vehicles this is separate from the electronic/electric switch which is located just behind it which supplies power in the run position. You may have to remove the shroud covering the column to access the connections to check via a meter. Personally, I'd begin checking for voltage at the two connections for the radio and wiper and begin checking backward with the ignition in the run position and accessory on. The problem is not with a fuse or inside the fuse box if they work in ACC position.
