A: It sounds like something was not connected ...

It sounds like something was not connected properly or was put in the wrong place. Make sure the range selector is in the right place and not reading reverse or drive. If the range selector is not in park or neutral, the vehicle will not start at all as a safety measure. Check over your work once again and if you are still stuck, consider hiring the assistance of an experienced professional like a technician from YourMechanic, to assist with your steering column replacement.
