Default help with an SL2 not starting

heya guys, wondering if you could help me, i have a 2000 Saturn sl2 and it is currently cranking, but not firing (as if it is getting no fuel). I took it to a shop before (because it was completely dead) and they said it was the alternator. So I replaced the alternator, then replaced the battery. Then Replaced the battery leads. the car will now turn over but still wont start. I get no security light when I turn it to run, and I hear no sound of the fuel pump.

I just replaced the crankshaft position sensor CPS (don't know if I need to reset anything after that) and checked the fuel shradder value, which is giving off fuel. (but again, I still cant hear it prime when I go to turn on the car). Also, i'm not getting sparks off the 1 and 4 coil. Any ideas as to what it could be?

oh! and I tested the fuel pump wires in the back of the car. The grey wire had no voltage but the purple wire did (I have no idea what the purple wire is, but I am told the grey is the one to worry about).

Thats about it. Any ideas?

cheers guys!

Check ALL fuses in BOTH fuse boxes. Does the SES light come on when you turn the key to RUN?
