Hi. Sounds like the starter is intermittantly failing. You can verify this by checking for power at the starter while you have someone turn the key to start position. Do you have a test light to check that?

Thanks for viewing my response to your question. Have you made any further checks at the starter? Let me know if you have more questions and also please rate my assistance. Thank you.
