1997 Gen 1 TL 3.2 No Start Condition

Hello all,

I'm at a loss and have turned to the forums, finally. My lady friend has a 97 TL 3.2, that has a no start issue. Her dad and I recently changed the starter no less than 3 days ago. Car was fine and started several times. No issues.
I have just received a phone call from her (upset understandably) that it is not starting. Electrics kick on, accessory power is fine, no crank, no starter click whatsoever.
My hunches feel there is a power draw somewhere (I know, vague). Or the ignition switch is kicking the bucket.
Does anybody have any insight on what I need to chase down? I've done the majority of the work for her and want her to simply have a reliable vehicle.
Thank you for your time, I look forward to your insight.

Already ahead of you on the battery. Less than 1 week old.
Regarding the ignition switch, what is the basic location of it in the interior?
