Another VLT that won't start..

Ok so I've been having some issues with my Calais, At first my battery died, then my battery in my alarm key pad lol. Once all this was sorted, I went to turn on the ignition, everything lights up as per usual.. But that's it. No crank, no fuel pump priming.
What could it be? Fuel pump? Starter motor? Ignition switch?.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys.

Did you charge the battery or did you buy a new one mus?
Sounds to me like battery dead or earth not on properly

New battery man, I recently changed the ignition switch so I thought it could be that. Then I bridges the starter motor with 2 screw drivers while the ignition was turned on and it didn't start. So I don't think it's the ignition switch..
What makes me think the fuel pump may be a issue is the fact that when I turn the key it doesn't prime?.. I don't know. Maybe the problem is the switch.

Have you checked for 12v at the fuel pump with the ignition on?
Run a wire from 12v + battery to red on the starter to see if the car cranks
A faulty fuel pump won't dis allow the car to crank
Now seems to me ignition switch or starter
Do what I said with the starter to rule that out

Unfortunately I'll be a couple days away from being able to work on the car, it's not at my place and in storage. I have O'Brien people coming tomorrow arvo to replace my wagons windshield and a sparky coming in the morning. I have a meeting taking up Wednesday, so I'm hopeful for Thursday.

It has a viper or vipec alarm fitted, at first I suspected it was a issue. But once I changed the remote battery I was able to arm and disarm it again.
Thanks

Thank you for the tip Deano, I used a wire to the battery terminal. Car started so my "reco" ignition switch, is a dud. Payed $50 for that
