Hi. I had a start problem and it turned out to be a relay (like a car fuse). It is housed in a black box under the bonnet. Try pushing or wiggling them and see if helps (you might need someone trying to start it while you fiddle) Check the number on it and swap it with another one the same and see if that works (you might even see marks which might indicate which it could be). Hope it helps but it's a cheap easy thing to try. Good luck.
