After attempting and it doesn't work sometime trying latter and it starts so I have no clue what problem it has so any help would be greatfull

Regards

Have you checked the wires at the starter? If they are loose or corroded that will cause the issue you describe. It is possible the starter is going bad and only works when it wants to. It sounds like a wiring issue to me though. I would check the simple stuff first.
