Check and test the ignition switch and starter relay-You sure the starter relay is hooked-up properly?

We checked the wiring on the starter relay and found it would only work one way for we had the wires switched the first time and we also replaced the ignition switch but not the lock cylinder could the lock cylinder be causing the problem thank you

Do this disconnect the red and light blue wire from the starter relay, now turn key to run position -check power at the wire-power there check and test the ignition switch-power is not suppose to be there only at starting position.
