Hello and welcome!

My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 5 months ago.

Are there any anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the dash when this happens?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
no
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 5 months ago.

Ok, then the starter motor has likely failed and will need to be replaced. It is common for it to work intermittantly like your describing. I would have it fixed before it leaves you stranded and you have to pay a tow bill.

Good luck and let me know if you have any further questions.

YUP! A bad starter can in fact do this.
