Hello Andy and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
MY apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.
do you have a manual or auto transmission?
if manual, do you have a clutch pedal switch?
did you try swapping the relay, with another one? or are you getting power at the relay coil?
PS: the ignition switch is the most common culprit on this model, however, we still need to confirm.

Hi billy
Thanks for your reply.
Don't worry about the delay, it's fine.
It's automatic, (see first line) so no clutch pedal, and I have am getting power to 3 out of 4 pins on the relay.
If I I power the starter wire at the relay, the starter cranks, so I know circuit is good, however, it still will not start.
I have not tried a relay, and there is no diagram on the relay for me to check the relay, although I will take it apart and check it.
I feel it may be the ignition switch, but need a diagram or pin information to check what's coming out.
I am a renault master tech ( 15 years) so can use a multi meter and diagrams etc
Any help you can provide I will be most grateful, and will have no problem accepting and paying.
Kind regards
