I was referring to the entire positive cable should be inspected as sometimes the way it`s routed can hide where it`s got a break in the cable and corrosion has set in. I`m sure the ignition switch could cause this issue. but if you replaced the column it`s not likely. I`ve had a issue like yours in the past, sometimes the car would start and when it did the starter would stay engauged. Other times I`d hit the switch and it would do nothing. Turns out the small terminal on the solenoid was so loose it was about to fall out and that was due to the solenoid being melted.
