Check the power hold relay and fuses. This could be the Computer Box or the Key Reader as well. Check the starter relay as well. It could have a short circuit. If its satred raining, check the large rubber blug on the wiring harness on the left hand side between the engine compartment and the passenger compartment, Water has possibly got into the computer box as its located on the left side A pillar under the dash.
