I suspect that the starter is failing. check that you have battery voltage at the big starter cable, and battery voltage at the smaller START wire at the starter when your assistant turns the key to START. If so, and the starter doesn't run, then it's faulty.
I HAD THIS SAME ISSUE AND EVERYONE SAID IT WAS MY STARTER BUT I GOT AN SECOND OPPION AND I EXPLAINED THAT IT WOULNDT CRANK AND ALL THE LIGHTS WOULD COME ON BUT THERE WAS NO CLICKING SOUND. PLUS IT DIDNT DO IT EVERYDAY AND THEY FOUND THAT MY IGNITION SWITCH WAS WORN OUT ONCE REPLACED I HAD NO MORE ISSUES. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.
