Exclamation 1993 Safrane 2.0 starting probs

If anyone has come across the following, could you post a reply plz, before car gets scrapped, which will be a real waste.

Car was driven yesterday no problems at all, then today went out to it, and it refused to turn over.

The dash lights flicker in time with the fuel ECU buzzing... also the rear fuel pump...... there also appears to be a noise coming from the injector rail. You turn the key as if to start and there is nothing there, no starter kicking in at all, all except the noises I have mentioned above.
The starter motor was replaced a few weeks ago, so cannot be that, no wires are loose on Starter either, all the usual wiring blocks have been checked for corrosion and sprayed to make sure of a connection.
When the starter did pack in recently, the lights all worked fine on dash, and went out when key turned to start etc. This time is different, they are flickering..and staying lit in tandem with Fuel ECU buzzing... this is what I find odd??

Thanks in advance, open to suggestions, think we have tried almost everything, apart from a fuel ecu change... which will cost more than value of car i suspect.
