    If I understand you correctly it sounds like you have replaced the steering lock (ignition barrel ) and key ,
    But it sounds like you haven't the matching imobiliser chip out of the original key for the car ,As without this the car is NEVER going to start ,
    If you haven't got it then need to get an auto electrition bypass the imbiliser OR get another ecu +key from a breakers
