I would definately suspect ignition switch or starter motor.You say that starter has been tested,but if it works the majority of the time then fault is very difficult to diagnose.As Ivor E Tower has said,Renault immobilisors don't stop the engine turning over.Is your car an automatic,because they have a switch to stop the engine turning over when not in park or neutral?.If so,switch could be faulty.
