No power to ignition - ? please help! 91 amigo 2.3l
1 1/2 yrs. ago put new battery, starter & alternator (it was refurbished). Found out it was ignition. A friend ran wire & put in toggle switch for ignition. Now I'm in alaska (-21) started up, then stalled. Went to start again & as soon as I hit toggle to start- completely dead (no dash lights, etc.) Checked all fuses, tried to get jump start...nothing. I removed steering column housing & tried to start with screwdriver on ignition wires & still nothing. Got new battery. no help. It seems that when I turn key on - dash lights come on, when try to start - lose all power..... Pleeeaaaaassssee can someone help!?

You could possibly have a bad park neutral safety switch , power ( voltage ) from ignition goes thru the park neutral safety switch to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Does your vehicle have automatic or manual transmission ? And you should have voltage drop testing on the starter circuit done . Starter Voltage Drop You could have a bad battery cable .
My friend is a Honda Vehicle Technican who owns a 1994 Nissan Sentra which had kept dying on him. He had called the AAA driver who stated that the alternator was good as noted on the print out report when the AAA driver ran the check on the system. It turned the alternator was bad, which somehow also affected the starter. While the AAA driver had jump started the car, the ignition switch relay got broken; and the small positive cable connection got a short; so it all, he replaced the alternator, the starter, the battery and got a new battery cable connectors, ignition switch relay and fuse for the inside of the interior lights -- and he has no problems since after spending 4 days on this problem. It would had been easier had he had a lift and the right equipment but nevertheless he got it done but missed his work -- but at least its fixed.
A good hot battery shoulde do it. Have you had any problems with the security system? That's all that should keep it from starting now. Have you put a socket on the crank bolt to make sure the engine is not seized and turns freely? Good luck.
Car no start problem is sometimes very difficult to confirm.
You try all the possible things, but still you get no fault and problem is still the same.--------
In that case, you need to check few things individually.
Check the spark,the battery,the crank, the fuel and other most possible parts.

There is more information needed. If you can does not start, troubleshooting strates with the symtoms. If the engine is turning over when you try to start at a normal speed then the ignition coil could be an issue. Although most new cars do not have 1 ignition coil like the older cars did. If you replaced the battery and the engine is turning slow when you try to start it, you may have an issue with the alternator. If that is the case a jumpstart would get the engine started. If attempts to start the engine result in just a clicking noise it could be the starter. Also ther is a number of other components I didn't mention that could play a role. If you could describe what you see and heard, it would help narrow it down.
