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

Yes sir , you have a failing valve, soon it will snap in two....please have your head checked. You can do this yourself by placing a long-handed screwdriver , business end down to each cylinder while pressing your ear to the handle(while engine is running)...you will notice a definite difference when you hit which cylinder has the bad valve. Also makes sure the egr valve is clean and your exhaust recycle valve is not stuck.( located in the crossover pipe)

Hey have you tried disconnecting and re connecting the battery? my mitsi carisma startd doing that so i rang up dealer and aparently they do it when the computer thinks there is something wrong with the engine, so it enters slow mode (or turtle mode or something) so that minimal damage is done while you drive it slowly to yr mechanic. Could be complettly wrong tho. Good luck.

A common cause of this problem is a defective fuel pump check valve, hook up a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail test port and verify there are no leaks, start the engine and let it run until the fuel pressure is steady, then shut it off the fuel pressure should remain within 5 PSI of the running reading, if not then the fuel pumps built in check valve is defective. The reason this causes hard starting is the fuel drains out of the line due to the defective check valve, when you start you get air to the injectors for a second, this causes rough running and a stall in some cases, 2nd restart in most cases is ok. Do the leak down test and let me know the test results.
