So you changed the key and tumblers from your old column to the replacement column and it still won't start and run, so if that is the case then it sounds like you missed a connection somewhere on the column connector or they are not there.

Well then there's your problem, you either have to swap the key and tumblers or take it to a dealer and have the security system reprogrammed to the new key and column.
