Default Fuel Pump not kicking in whilst trying to start?

Hi all I have recently purchased a 97 MX3 1.8L v6 and Iím trying to figure out why the fuel pump wonít come on straight away.
when I got to start the car I have to stab the key 4-5 times for a second or two before the fuel pump will prime then it will take at lest 10 seconds of cranking before the engine will start. It then likes to rev high then stall out so I then have to start it again.
has anyone else had this problem I removed a after market alarm system thinking that it might have had something to do with problem but no luck.
