Welcome to JustAnswer, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. When it doesn't crank do you still hear the starter click?

The most likely cause is the clutch switch then possibly the ignition switch. Next time problem happens unplug switch and jump wires together, if that allows it to start then clutch switch needs to be replaced. The clutch switch is located at top of pedal. If that doesn't help check to see if wire going to clutch switch has voltage with key in start position, if not then ignition switch needs to be replaced. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
