Help needed - ignition problems after instrument cluster work

Column shift? Did you drop the column to pull the cluster? Try grounding the NSS wire at the starter relay. Maybe the column shift linkage is off a bit now and
the tranny lever isn't quite in the right place and NSS isn't allowing juice through?
Yep - I did and when I wired up and retested before tightening everything in fully place it was working. And it worked again once after everything was tightened into place and then the current scenario. But maybe something got shifted or loose again in that final tightening fit - it’s just that it fired up and on second asking - then nothing. I’m going to look at this tomorrow or have somebody look at it, as it’s bloody Ubers and trains to the office tomorrow morning, that isn’t ideal.
