Check your battery, starter, fuel pump and fuel pump relay. One could be not working properly. Hope this helps!

Sounds to me like you need the electrical portion of the ignition switch. It's a pretty common problem on this model. Alot of the times having too many keys on the key ring that your ignition key is on contributes to this type of failure in the switch from the constant excessive weight. Also check the clutch safety switch, but this isn't as common as the ignition switch. good luck, hope this helps.
