Start doing what is easy and cheap. First check your battery, how old is it? Are the terminals clean, it is amazing how many problems are cured by making sure you are getting full battery power. If you disconect your battery you will need to re-enter your radio secret code again, so be sure you have that.
You might also check the starter pinion .. it might need greasing. .
Starter pinion symptoms can be turning the key, the starter intermittently will not crank the engine over, and can cause starter motor noise.
