I've had the same problem. Change the starter solenoid in the steering column because if you don't, eventually it will not start at all. Right now, it is warning you.

Spray some starter fluid into the intake. If it kicks over but doesn't start, you have fuel issues.

Engine cut out while driving. Would turn over, no start.

If it were mine, I would check to see that there is fuel to the engine and the ignition system is working.
