Check your fuses under you dash. There is a fuse for the electronic ignition. it could be the fuse had gone out it would be spot 15 from the left i Think
Don't know if you've fixed your problem yet or not. But mine was doing good the same thing. I changed my master cylinder for my clutch and it fired right up again. Didn't feel like it was going out, and clutch felt the exact same after I replaced it, but it fixed my starting problem. Good luck!
