CAR ONLY STARTS WHEN COIL PORTS ARE JUM

1992 Mercury Tracer

Electrical problem
1992 Mercury Tracer 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 80,000 miles

I have replaced the starter, battery, cooing fan, coil relay, brand new battery, alternator is good:
I was able to get the car started by removing the cooling fan relay and jumping the coil ports with a cotter pin: the key will shut car off but will not start it.
Could this be the Ignition switch itself?
if it is iginiton switch itself, is there a way to bypass it:
Thank you for your time and immediate feedback in the above matter:
