2000 XJ won't start NSS replaced

Hi everyone. I have a strange situation (at least I think it is). My 2000 XJ sits quite a bit. The battery has been disconnected and checked so I know it's not that. When I would go to start it in the past, I would have to rock it back and forth and it would finally start (it's an automatic). That finally quit working (wouldn't even turn over) so I thought it was the NSS. I tried getting the old one off and cracked it so I bought a new one. Put that on tonight and it still won't crank over. The reverse lights come on, but won't crank in neutral or in park....doesn't even click. I've tried search, but with so many other posts out there, I didn't see any that fit my situation. Any help would be appreciated. Also, I noticed a small leak in the gas line. I read on another post that if there isn't any pressure it wouldn't want to turn over. I've also replaced the crankshaft sensor not too long ago so I don't think it's that. Again, any help would be appreciated.

Bad starter. Maybe you just overlooked it because of your previous nss problem.

Have you bypassed the NSS to test for non-NSS issues ( starter ?) causing the no-start ? Have you adjusted the NSS to different positions and re-tried starting ?

Have removed, inspected, cleaned, and snugged firmly all the battery, starter, and alternator wiring connections ? At this point you may want to remove the starter and have it tested.

Did you buy a good quality NSS, or a cheap Chinese clone NSS ?
