Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you're having an issue starting the engine. There are quite a few things that can cause a no start condition and it will require some testing at the time the problem is happening to know what is going on. The problem could be with the ignition switch, transmission range sensor, the starter, starter relay, wiring, even the powertrain control module itself.

Is there any noise from the engine compartment when turning the key to the crank position?
