You will need the factory wiring diagram to be able to do this...
and as long as you take your time and follow the diagram, you too can become an automotive electrical specialist... get good glasses or magnifying glasses or in my case, bi-focals LOL

We thought it was just a regular ignition switch problem, but after removing the bottom of the dash (under the steering wheel) we found...Get this... a duplicate key taped to the wires, and secured by a...

Okay, I like challenges so will take this on! I would guess that either you have a wire that was rubbed through the insulation and is now making contact with your steering column (check for a blown fuse) or you have a bad ground in the steering colum that the channel locks was compensating for. Hopefulling it is a shorted wire because that is easier and more localized to find. A bad ground will have to be figured out by where the channel locks were located before.

Note: If the car started with the wiring harness plugged in, then that was part of the problem but something else happened when you closed it up and made it pretty. Suggest you take the steering column apart again and as soon as you do, try to start it with no changes other than the covers off. If it starts look for that shorted wire - BUT check for the blown fuse FIRST!

Are you the original owner? It sounds as if there is a remote starter on the vehicle. There may have been a remote start added to the vehicle by a previous owner. Does this happen at the same place all the time?
