i would try checking your starter wires. Alot of issues with starting have been simply the copper wire betwen the points and the solinoid rots off.

where is this wire located this may be my issue help please

The photo attached will specify the wire i am peaking off it is normally just a cooper wire exposed to the elements when i had my starter suddenly stop working this was the issue with my audi. Normaly the only way to fix this problem is to replace the starter. It would be hard to find out of tis is infact the issue so if you could provide the codes you recieved it will help pin point the issue.
