Try holding the key over to the 'start' position while giving the lower dash just above your left knee a thump. If the car starts then, you have a dry joint in the B.E.M. (Body Electrics Module, controls lighting, variable wipers, smartlock etc..). Is becoming a common issue with these cars as they age.
Can be repaired but it's easier to replace the whole unit.

Hi Esteven8

You was right, I hit the dash has you said & it started,
at least I know what the problem is & how to fix it.
