I replaced the ignition and had a lock smith instal it But car will still not crank. Locksmith was sure this was the problem. Spent 264.00 on ignition so cant spend too much more on it. What else could be wrong?

Is your security light blinking?
If so scan BCM for codes
did you check to start the car in Neutral (checking neutral safety switch )
have you checked the starter
let me know

Thanks for the help.
I checked all the above and no luck. One question the security light stays on all the time. Wew checked all the cable connections to the starter and even the ground and still no luck. Nuetral safety switch was not problem. Still confused
