need help 2001 plymouth neon

I just replaced the battery and starter. Car still will not start. Wiring has been checked and the car is getting power. It will start when hot wired! I just know it is something simple but can not put my finger on it.

How are you "hot wiring" it? Sounds like it could be an ignition switch issue.

Does it try to turn over or anything?

Does it crank and stall?

If an invalid key is received by the PCM or no status at all is communicated, the vehicle will stall after two (2) seconds of running. The indicator light will be flashing at this point.

otherwise check the following
