try hitting the underside? of the dash where the handbrake is it might be a smart lock issue.

(hold the key to the cranking position and hit the hand brake area with your palm) may take a few attempts

mine has had the starter motor failed (it was the solenoid) smartlock (had to re-solder the contacts) and the relay under the reservoir bottle in the bonnet i think it controls other relays and maybe (guess) ecu power

When you check the car next record how many beeps/flashes smartlock gives out it may be an error code? You can try leaving ignition on for an hour with key in and does your dome light work?
