Car will not start

I have a manual 2000 Maxima with 122K miles. I recently had the slave "something" replaced on the car for the clutch. Since then the car does not start. The battery is fine and the head lights work and everything seems to work fine. The problem comes when I turn the ignition and nothing happens. Usually, turning the key halfway will power on the radio and show the warning lights, but now nothing happens. They guy who replaced the mentioned part swears he did nothing that would make the car like that and saids it's probably electrical. He has no expertise in electrical. Also, this doesn;t happen all the time, but enough to have me worried.
Do you
have the same problem?

It would be nice if we know the liter on this engine

How old is the battery/Is the connections tight and corrosion free. Also the battery cable at the starter.

How much did you pay him for the slave-maybe he wants more and rigged it to get more. You don't have to be an expert in electrical to figure out a missing fuse or link to replace, who knows that's what he did. If he is a mechanic he has to know the basic fundamentals of electricity in todays technology.

Could be the ignition switch

The engine is a 3.6Liter and the battery is about 3 years old. The connections to the battery are good. I paid him $220 to relace the slave and the upper and lower hose.

You mean it cranks over but w/n start-if so -remove a plug wire ground to the engine have someone be cranking the engine while you look for spark-Do you have spark?

My son's care has no power going to the ignition. The battery is good. He changed the clutch and that is when it quite working. He has headlights, horn, 4ways, interior lights, door locks and all emergency electricity but nothing else. It has a v 6 3000, twin cam and 24 valve. If some one can tell me what to check to find the problem also how to check to see if it is the silnoid

Check all the fusible links liitle colored square boxes that has a window on it in the power disribution box it has to go thru there to get to the ignition switch-When you turn key to On do you see them idiot lights like alternator and oil. If so and refuse to crank over-could be the ignition switch/neutral safety switch/starter relay or the starter itself.
