what is it actually doing when you try to start it??, when you say its like it has a flat batery do you mean it is cranking really slow?? did you load test the batery?? it may have 12.4 volts, but the voltage may drop sharply when under load if the batery is crook

on the left hand side of your steering wheel give it a good thump on the lower plastic, between column and centre console......

BEM could have a dry joint.....

Hold the key over in the 'start' position while you do this.
