Hi, I had a similar problem with my megane would start perfectly at times, and others it wouldn't do anything when I turn the key, but then after a while it will fire up.

I followed the red lead from the battery down to underneath the engine (to the solenoid I think it's called) and it was literally just a slide on clip - with no protection from the road/grit/water it had become corroded - just sanded down the connections and has been fine ever since - starts first time every time (however I'm still having problems with it stalling sometimes and sometimes revving really high on idle - fun!)

Hope that helps.
