Check the battery cable for corrosion and have the battery tested, if both are ok you may have an ignition starter switch problem. Have a shop confrim this guess.

SOURCE: try to start car and nothing happens. replaced

Do the dash lights come on ? They should come on when the key is turned to the on position. If nothing happens check the engine relay. It is not too expensive to replace if you really want to eliminate that as the problem. Check all wires going to the starter and make sure it is wired correctly.

HAVE YOU HAD THE BATTERY TESTED? ARE THE BATTERY TERMINALS/CABLES CLEAN AND FREE OF CORROSION? ARE THEY TIGHT?

Had the same problem. In my case, it was the battery cable ends that needed replacing. Car works fine now.

Bad or loose intermittent wire connections to and from sensors. Some unauthorised mechanic has been working on the car? Take it back and talk to the service manager, or the shop owner.
