1. It could be the dead battery cell that means a bad battery
2. Corroded battery terminals and cables
3. A bad starter or starter solenoid.
4. Bad ignition switch
5. last It wouldn't hurt to do a tune up to the car (Bosch wires, Bosch Platinum +4 spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, synthetic oil and oil filter).
