Hi there.

Over the past few weeks, I've had quite sporadic issues with the ignition. Jump in the car to rush my son to school and it starts first 'press' every time, but If we go out for the day I often have to re-press the ignition button several times for the car to start. It will go days without a problem, then all of a sudden I'll have a few days where it happens multiple times during the day - sometimes it takes 2 presses, sometimes 15. All I get is a click of recognition like something is happening, but apart from that dead as a Dodo as if I have a flat battery. Wait a minute and it fires up just fine.

Anyone?

Thanks

Check the ground cable under the battery, can often become loose/fail, also you fail to mention your engine type...

If the dashboard goes dark when you press the start button, it could be a clutch / brake pedal switch issue.
