Did you replace with a new ignition cylinder and key? You'll have to program the new key to the car.

Did you install your original ignition switch into the replacement steering column? If not that's the cause for a NO start. ALL THESE vehicles in the last decade plus... use whats call an RFID Radio frequency Identification "CHIP" for generic name.. SAME as all the NEW CREDIT CARDS by the way! so the Ford EECV computer won't allow the anti-theft system to "STEAL" the vehicle. Regards
