Sounds like you say it's trying to start? Check a spark plug or two to see if their wet with fuel or dry. The compression could be low for alot of reasons, ( flooded, overheated, oil gassed from past flooding). Why does it have a flip switch as the security system has to have the key to let the computer turn on the fuel injection and the spark. Has the truck been checked to see good spark? Has fuel been added to the air inlet to see if it'll start with added fuel? The ingtion switch turns on 6 circuits and 4 of them have to be good to set the engine to runing. The ingtion lock cyclinder the engine control computer and the body control computer and the instrument custer module all have to agree that the right key is in the lock or they will not turn on fuel control and spark management. It's almost impossible to make a 93 or newer dodge run hotwired even the transmission controller has to approve the key and all of these modules have to be of the same VIN and not be dead.

Have changed to crankshaft sensor the oxygen sensor spark plugs and wire and wont start even when it is turning over

Borrow a fuel pressure tester from Auto Zone and test the fuel system. It could be that you have a bad fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. It also could be a plugged fuel filter.
