Why did you replace the steering column? Did you use the same ignition lock cylinder? Reprogram the keys?

Did you put the old ignition switch and tumbler in the new column? Does it turn over or just do nothing?

Battery voltage? Does it crank? Fuel pressure?

If it cranked slightly then it still could be the battery or a bad starter(they sell bad parts right out of the boxes all the time). Check ALL connections at the battery and starter, make sure they are clean and tight. Try jumping it with another vehicle or a jumper pack. If it starts right up its a bad battery or the alternator isn't charging the battery. If it doesn't start it's probably the starter. Where did you get the battery and starter?

I got new battery and new starter from autozone i tried to jump it it stilldidnt start

All ma lights and radio works just wont atart ughhh its alredy costs me a nice penny smh

Well there could be your problem, Autozone electronics (alternators/starts/batteries) are not very good. They will warranty their stuff but like with any electronics YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. How long ago did you put them in? Did you shim the starter correctly?

Check ALL connections at the battery and starter, make sure they are clean and tight.
