Its more than likely the flywheel sensor that tells the engine what position it's in (hence when to inject fuel) that is faulty I had the same problem and occasionally had to bump start the car Other symptoms were the car cutting out at random occasions at low revs...coming up to traffic lights A friend had the same issue and the garage changed fuel pump like yourself. I told her of the sensor issue and it sorted it straight away Good news, it is a cheap part around 30pounds and easy to fit. Just take the sump guard off underneath and look for the flywheel towards the passenger side the sensor is spring fitted into a mounting and just plugs into a solenoid connection. If you get the garage to do it they should charge you no more than an hour's labour plus the part.

If your stock engine ground strap is missing, you can install a nice big braided one between any good heavy engine bolt and the frame. As to no start, check fuel pressure with gauge, check for spark at plugs and ask again with this new info.
sounds like the dreaded renault immobiliser ,in which case its dealer only as software encrypted.whats happening is the immobiliser is stopping it from starting when key is in start position cranking but it will go with a bump as starter motor key position not activated .try a wire from battery to small connector on starter motor .if it starts which i think it will then you know what to do ...old fashioned way with a push button.but are you getting prepared to lay the golden egg ???just in case
I have a 2000 Espace and for years it has suffered from a non-start problem. It can be fine for ages and then, suddenly, there's nothing when you turn the ignition, not even a click. All instruments light up. It's not the battery. Does this sound familiar?
In my case, time and time again it has been what they call the 'firewire' connection on to the starter - the connection becomes corroded over time and fails to pass sufficient voltage.
If the terminal becomes too badly burned, where the voltage has arced because of a poor connection, apparently the only solution is to fit a new starter motor. But so far, in my case, it's just needed a clean of the connector and terminal.
By the way, holding the ignition key in the ON position for some time (30 seconds or more) can sometimes cause it to fire up.
