    Confirm your battery connection are NOT loose. Could be something in the staring system: Battery Cables,Starter Motor,Battery or even ignition switch. I would advise you to have your regular service technician inspect it before it leaves you stranded. Good luck.

    most likely it is the starter as you can hear the power reaching the solinoid by the clicking that you hear, but the staorter does not ingage when this problem occurs sometimes it will start upon several attempts just out of luck that the power goes through. take the small wire off the starter (should just unplug a single wire) then with key in start position test for power if there is power then disconnect the battery ,remove the starter and have it bench tested ( to verify) or just replace it.
