I would say he's routed the two blue wires to a secret switch. Put the black direct onto the solenoid
Or, zooming in, is that blue just a link?

if itís a diesel what is the choke for? , the red switch is like one i have its a keyed isolator in one position unlocked you can remove the key the other it rotates into through 90 degrees is the on position normally but as you say your dad may have second guessed the thieves,
I'm almost scared to put my head above the parapet on a technical thread and apologies if this is a really daft suggestion... but could it be some kind of immobiliser? My van's got one - it's nothing I ever have to 'set', it's just there and, once the ignition's on, I have to press a button on a separate little remote to allow the engine to start. The visual sign on mine is that the blue main beam light comes on with all the other lights when the ignition's switched on. Took Martin and I a while to work it out... we thought the battery was constantly draining somehow
Give us a picture of engine,seems like confusion whether its petrol or diesel.
If diesel then a small squirt of easy start into the air intake will get it going,not to much now.
If petrol then the dist cap and leads will require drying with a hair drier plus inside of distributator cap, one lead of at distributor to confirm a good blue spark,dont pull of at plug to do this as at 35 th volts your eyes will light up,and as others have said turn over with no choke and pedal down,then only slighty touch pedal a small amount and turn over ,if it starts either small jabs of the choke in and out or fast small pumps of the throttle,ps chokes dont work half in or out,either full in or full out as they have a spring bypass when you rev engine before you push it in.
Dont over crank a engine as you will bugger the starter,10 to 15 sec with a 5 min break between tries.
