Hi everyone

I'm a newbie to wiki Wirral and require some help. I bought a 83 944 for not a lot of money which had been stuck in the back of a warehouse and not ran for 3-4 years. After putting on new
Ignition switch (split in 2)
Fuel pump (seized)
Fuel filter
Drained and put in new fuel
Battery
Fuel pump relay
The car would turn over but not fire as the fuel pump was not getting any power. I put power direct to fuel pump via 12v jump start pack got the pump goin and the car started first time.
I'm no mechanic just a tryer and I'm guessing it could be alarm (wire hanging loose) or immobiliser which has been crudely snipped out.
Could anyone help me out with a auto electrician or someone who knows there way around these motors. They would have to come to me as the car hasn't been on the road since 2004.
Sorry about the essay just want to get all info out, I look forward to hearing from you
Kev

if it's nothing to do with the alarm check the hall sensor.

Can't be sensor otherwise it wouldn't start with the fuel pump relay (or DME relay) bypassed
