Thumbs down 2002 starting problem

Hi, I am new to posting but have got lots of help reading other posts. My wife's 2002 PT Cruiser has had a starting problem. We replaced a dead battery a few months ago so that's good. I have recently replaced the starter and the starter relay in the fuse box under the hood. The problem when she tries to start, the radio and everything works but it won't start, not even a click. After talking to her I had her move the shifter and nothing. Then I had her move the steering wheel several times and finally got it to start. Does anyone know of a switch of some kind in the steering that would cause this? Thanks for your help.

Default Re: 2002 starting problem

No switch in the steering column but loads of people have had accessory problems because the wires run down the column and are too tight and stretch and break. Moving the column up or down to a position where the wire looms aren't so stretched seems to help. Usually the problem is in the radio where it cuts out until the column is moved.
