hi guys mini noob need help

Hi I have a 05 mini one d and have been trying to sort out the door locks not working properly I managed to sort n/s door by just clipping the cable from the internal door handle back into place . on the drivers side the key was not turning and locking/unlocking the door so I got the panel off and removed the mechanism. I have now figured out the barrel is knackerd the doors lock and unlock but now the car won't turn over when I turn ignition on the fuel system pressureizes and I hear relays click but when I turn the key to crank I get nothing no clicking from the starter could this be ews the car has not been locked for ages and the key was not coded to the car until I found out how to do it today could it be starter or ews misalgned or something else thanks for your help in advance

Thanks I will try touching battery leads together pretty sure the battery is OK as I have also tried jumping it from another running car also all lights are bright and do not dim. I will also check terminals tight I'm curious to know what touching the battery leads together might do as I've not heard of this before
Thanks for your reply
