Ignition switch replaced...now won't start

Hi, Ignition switch was acting up on my Boxster 98 so I replaced it. Turned the key on, all the lights lit but the engine did not turn.
I read that there is a fuse that needs to be tested (will do that next). If that fails, will test voltage going to the starter. Are these good troubleshooting steps or should I start somewhere else?

Double check your work, then try another switch.

Make sure you bought the correct switch. There was an update at one point and if the whole lock assembly was replaced on your car, you may need the newer switch. Happened to me on a 2000S.
