does it try to kick over, or does it just tick?
I had an EF that did something similar and it was my starter motor on the fritz, sometimes it'd start and other times i'd have to bang it with a hammer

It doesn't make any attempt to turn over I can hear the relay next to the ignition clicking if that helps I think it may be my immobiliser
