156 2.4JTD 2002 Intermittent starting problem

Hi I wonder if somebody can throw a little light on a problem that has developed recently

My car has always fired up off the first turn of the key come cold or hot weather. Twice in the past week however I will turn the key andthe engoine doesn't crank at all. All electrics work but the computer display and the trip meter reset to zero as if the battery was flat. (It has a new battery and the charge is fine). After a couple of turns of the key the starter solenoid starts to click and the engine will fire up.

Seen a similar thread from a 1.9 where the OP thought it may be faulty starter but problem persisted with a new starter motor fitted.

Any ideas?
