Does your car have a factory amp in it? If so then it needs a delay to the power wire because it is going into protection. Also could be the your holding the switch to long trying to start the car.

Have one of the auto parts places check your battery. Most do it for free. Your battery can be weak and able to run the car but not have enough amperage to turn the starter motor to get it started. The battery will eventually die and soon.

Starter motor not turning over when key is turned

Have a mechanic look but it sounds like the bendix which spins the starter is bad, usually if bad exactly what you are describing. When you try to start it engages and in a lot of cases if just a click and then will work at other times it is the problem---If the starter has been there for a while replace it and the bendix which almost always come as a unit.

so you start the car and the radio will not work? but the radio works with he door open and key off? its normal to turn the car off and the radio play until you open the door.

When i try to start the engine a light on the dash comes on and says check engine i've checked what i can but i cant seem to find the problem and when i turn the key theres nothing at all happening...

It sounds like your starter has stopped working. I could be a bad fuse able link but this is usually a problem on older vehicles. The service engine soon light should always come on when you start the car. If you turn the key to start and you hear absolutely nothing then odds are its the starter. If you take it out yourself, you can have it tested at a local parts store before you drop the cash to buy another. I hope this helps!
