Could be the sensor at the gearbox which tells the car whether it's in gear or not. If it thinks it's in gear you'll need to push the clutch down and hold the start button in. If it thinks it's in neutral you should be able to press the button and it'll start itself. This fault often goes along with faulty reverse lights - have you checked these lately?
