car wont start

I have a third gen camaro rs that wont start. It had a 5.0 engine swaped to a 5.7 and crappy wiring from previous owner. Has 2 wires cuming from radiator fan to switch on the inside that i can turn on and off. I replaced ignition switch but no luck on getting it to start, im thinkin it has to do with VATS SYSTEM? when i get under the car and start it, it turns on but quikly shuts off. WHAT CAN I DO?

When you turn the key does the starter spin the engine?
