06 Tj won't start

I'm currently in NC and just received my Oregon plates. I went down to go pick up my jeep from a friends house and it will not start. When I turn the key the dash lights come on I hear the fuel pump and the starter relay clicks. Battery is good and I tried to jump the starter and the jeep just won't turn over. I replaced the ignition switch last night (I definitely did it wrong) because the key freely spins in the cylinder. (The jeep has an automatic tranny) Any help will be much appreciated!

you will need to get the ignition switch in properly first. When you have accomplished that, you can make sure your battery terminals are up to the mark by removing them and cleaning the posts and clamps so they shine. Reinstall and try again

After checking the cables, fuses, relays:

Does the starter solenoid make any sound or just the relay?

If no noise from the solenoid, it may be bad.

Also, the starter may be stuck, try tapping it with a wrench or small hammer.

The starter is not hard to pull and the parts stores will usually check it for free.

Sorry for the extremely late reply and thanks for the help!

I replaced the ignition switch and then noticed that the actuator pin was broken. After I replaced that she fired up just fine.
