MOTOR CRANKS BUT WILL NOT START

2002 Ford Explorer • 168,000 miles

Replaced steering column on explorer. When I went to restart it would just crank. Everything else works(shifting, lights, alarm, etc)had to replace one electrical harness but it turned out good. Used shrink connectors and excisting harness. Do u think the anti theft needs reset if so how do I do that.I checked to make sure there's fuel. Could the repaired electrical connector be a problem. Thank you

Is there a security light flashing on the instrument cluster when your cranking the engine? I would suspect the anti-theft first and second there maybe a electrical issue related to the ignition switch.
Is there any warning lights illuminated on the instrument cluster.
Why was the steering column replaced?
