Punto 1.2 8V 2000 DEAD

I just did a long post (about 16 minutes about my problem, but my login timed out so now Iíve lost it (and itís late)
IN summary.
Fuel injection system light been showing intermittent problems.
Before, flexing under bonnet connections helped.
So now I also re-mated some easily do-able connectors (both fuse boxes).
Each time the light stayed the same when turning ignition on (no cranking was performed).
So I decided to try starting Ė fired for half a second then nothing since.
Tried:
Battery off for 10 minutes.
Flexing connectors again.
Resetting fuel shut-off switch (didnít seem to need it?).
Flexing throttle body ECU connectors.

Observations:
Not much smell of petrol around the exhaust pipe.
Heater fan does not operate any longer (fuse ok)
All other obvious fuses ok
No time to check fuel/sparks now.

HELP, any advice appreciated. Thanks.

Sometimes it is caused by the steering lock switch.
