Clio not starting after changing ECU

Hi there, just bought a -99 Clio witch ran just fine but the battery was bad. My girlfriend got tierd of me not changing it so she did it herself, but with + and - the wrong way! Needles to say the car wouldn´t start after this. Tried to access the ECU at Renault but they said that the ECU was shot.
So I spoke to a guy at Renault if it was possible to change this to a used one from a scrapped car and he said it would work. Did this and the car starts but stalls at once, the injection management light flashes all the time but the immobiliser light comes off as it should. Tried the central locking button trick and the full throttle trick but the immobiliser light just stays black. What to do. please help!
I do know the 4 number code from donor ECU
Currently in beercreek's garage:
1999 Clio 1.2
