If you can hear the pump prime, how long does it run for?
With the key at MAR and foot on the brakes, can you select any gears?

Will have to check on thatabout 10 /15 secs I think, but when foot on brake no gears at all. The wife driving it went into neutral at lights that was it, After new pump went in was all ok took it for a run changed gears fine pulled up and parked and stuck again

Pump running time sounds about right; with a new accumulator, system should be holding pressure OK, so problem may be clutch push rod length or system calibration, which needs the diagnostic software.
One other thing to check is the multi-pin plug between battery and engine; workshop manual says "stress connection"; I take that to mean wiggle it about; the connections are sometimes iffy in the plug.
If this doesn't work, you'll need to find someone with the diagnostic software and cable or get hold of them yourself (recommended).
