    when you turn the key to position 2, you will hear a sort of buzzing noise behind you
    that will be the fuel pump priming
    an EWS fault will kill the pump as well as stopping the engine from turning over
    what alarm is fitted in the car
    if the pump is working, have to checked that your getting power to the starter motor?

    put a multimeter across it and get someone to turn the key to see if its getting power

    do you have the correct chip in the key?
    ive no idea what that alarm is, is it actually working?

    Are you 100% sure both cars had EWS 2?

    Try swapping back the EWS part from the old car and see if you can get it to crank.

    Is there a black ring around the ignition barrel that is powered to a white box under the fusebox?
