Q: car wont start but lights and radio come on on 2005 Ford Focus

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
when the car has been sitting for a few hours it will not start. the lights and radio come on and the lights dont dim after trying to start the car. once it starts then i can start it again if i shut it off and let it sit for 30 minutes to an hour but if i let it sit for a few hours then it wont start again.
