I replaced The ignition switch only not the tumbler
OK well you get key on power, but nothing to the starter side of the solenoid. have you checked any of it with a volt meter, or even a test light?
I would still check the back of your new switch to see if you get power when you you turn the key to the start position. If no power then its still a bad switch assembly. if you get power then you have a bad wire!
yep, by now you'll have to pull out the test light.
first thing to do is to check at the switch.
if you can jump start it at selonoid and it stays running, then the problem is either:
- the wiring from switch to 'S' port of selonoid.
- the connector at firewall
- the NSS
- the ignition switch itself
how do you know it's not the NSS? how did you check that?
if you have a testlight, check the 'S' port while someone turns the key. there probably is no power, that's the reason your car is not starting. work your way back from there

Many times the NSS is not bad it is just out of alignment. Bypassing it is not a good idea.
