D90 not starting

Swapped over some bulbs to LEDs tonight and now she won't start. Fuel pumps is on, lights on dash are on, I hear the key in ignition/light buzzer, but no cranking... Fuses look fine. I can't really test relay but I did swap out a couple under the dash with each other for trouble shooting. Also, I tried to put into reserve and then back to park to make sure it was set and it's locked.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

DO you hear anything when you try to crank it, ie starter, etc??

Any problems with the ignition tumbler?

DO you have an alarm? Try removing the key from ign, arming alarm, diasrming and try cranking engine. If you were under the dash all I can think of is a lose wire.

Good luck.

If you're not even getting door chime, or intermittent success with some things and not others, check your ignition module - on the opposite side of where your key goes into.

Yep, I've had two fail on me on my Discos (which look just like the D90 ign).
