First check battery cables for corrosion and bad connections check the battery voltage you should have 12-13 volts at the battery then see what you have at the starter where the battery cable is connected.You should have at least 12 volts there too.If you don't have 12 volts at the battery replace battery.

This could be a problem with your starter -- if you know a bit about engines try tapping the starter with a wrench while someone turns the key (not too hard so you don't damage it if this is not the problem). If your starter motor has a "dead spot" tapping it can get it to free itself up and might help. If this DOES help, please consider changing your starter so you don't have to keep going through this problem. If tapping the starter does not help, it might just be dead altogether. If you are doing your own work, try replacing it and hopefully that should help. If you are not going to do your own work on the car, a mechanic should be able to give you a proper diagnosis and repair the issue without too much hassle.
