Vauxhall Corsa B - starting problems - smed706

hi all my P reg 1.4 8v ohc single point injection corsa refuses to start and i must stress i bought this car as a cat d stolen recovered off the blue cycle auction site which im sure many of you have heard of anyway i was given only the spare key but the ignition barrel and housing have been as good as destroyed . right i have wired the igition so the dash lights come on but the engine management light flashed constantly. again with a bit of technical wiring re-arangeing i have managed to achieve a steady engine management light but the fuel pump isn't working. i put some petrol directly into the carb and fired it up and it ran until petrol in the carb ran out so i no its not electrically immobilised (i think anyway) so i have bypassed the fuel pump and put it on a switch and it hums when turned on but she still refuses to fire up any ideas peeps pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaasse thanks in advance petrol heads hope to here from you soon cheers
