that is a starter solenoid problem.
starter has its own solenoid. the big round thing besides the real motor.
it has contacts inside which could be worn out .
that is why sometimes it make contact and sometimes not.

hi sounds like your starter motor has packed in with all the trying.. just quickly put your car in 5th gear and give it a rock this might release it if not then you gota replace it and as a must get your battery charged up so it has the correct cranking amps to turn the starter

Dirty terminals, happens all the time. Did you have the battery tested? Or just know it's OK? Did you check the water? How about the electrolytes? Get the terminals cleaned off with a wire brush, and scrape the insides, make sure they are tight. I have replaced more batteries this week, must be the weather. One was stone dead, 5 volts and still started the car?? Couldn't believe it, good car. The other 2 were dead with 12+ volts but wouldn't start anything, both got new terminals, and both got cleaned up. NO problems. Check it out. Lastly, the solenoid in the starter could be bad if everything else checks out, whack it with a hammer while turning the key, if it jumps, you found it.
