I have a 2003 tribute. The key was stuck so I changed the column and put in a new ignition switch and key tumbler. It will not turn over at all. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

Was the new tumbler set up for your existing key? If not the car will not start till the new key is programmed in order to work.
