Most likely the anti-theft system is active, it is possible that the chip reader has also been damaged, your best bet is to take it to a dealer and have it checked.

Best Answer Mark helpful

the theft reader etc located in and around the ignition has been taped back in place and the ignition turns ,but can't hear fuel pump kick on

And most likely has turned off the spark also, but you might want to check for sure. You can always jumper the fuel pump relay just too see if the fuel pump even runs.
