Escort starting problem

Hi there
Can anyone throw a light on this. L reg 1800 EFI manual, will not start. If the car is pushed forewords (or backwards), a few inches (not in gear and
ignition off......) the car will then start ?? The ABS sensors are the only thing related to moving the wheels only but after disconnecting the ABS the problem is still there. The alarm system shows no faults. HELP....
