Your problem needs better definition. Turn the key does the engine make noise or clicking? Does it take turning the key 2 to 3 times before the engine starts turning over? Does it turn over but takes 2 or 3 tries to actually catch? No good answer until you better define your problem.

I have the problem occassionally when I shut the car off without locking the steering wheel. Lock the wheel and try to restart the car. It should work.
