starting problems

I have a Renault 19 1.8i 8v petrol cabriolet 1993

been trying to find a funky smell that has been coming into the car i tracked it battery overflow. The car was running fine before removal of battery and now wont start. The engine turns over fine but i can smell no fuel after a long period of turning over from the exhaust. Assume fuel pump iis not engaging. I have been told the immobiliser has been disabled by the previous owner. The fuel pump relay is fine and battery is not an issue as this still happens when trying to jump start it.All fuses are fine and the central locking is still operational. I dont have a key fob as previous owner has lost it and had the immobiliser disabled.

Any ideas would be welcomed.
