First check you have power on the red/blue wire when starter is being cranked (is the fuel pump going.) If no power then pump relay is faulty. If power = battery voltage 11 - 12 volts then you ecu may be faulty or there may be an earth wire to the ecu come adrift.

On the Astras, they have a relay that powers the ECU and fuel pump, it is located on the nearside shock tower. - (mounted to the coolant bottle).

I very much doubt that it is a ECU problem, I have NEVER had to Change one YET.

Last time I had a Astra that wouldn't go it was two feeds at the ignition amplifier. - the one that is supposed to work the rev counter. (pin 3 i think at the amp). Located next to the Battery, under the coil.

It sounds to me like the ECU isn't powering up, and as the injectors work on a ECU switched earth power should be there all the time.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Marky.
