take your caseing off round your steering wheel and check the rear side of your ignition barrel and use a screwdriver to insert in the rear of your ignition barrel to test that you can turn the car on and off,you may have a problem with your ignition barrel which is quite simple to replace!! as for the cut wires no idea!!!!

Cut wires under the car ???? very strange, has it ever had a tow bar ???
