Soemtimes it starts and sometimes it doesn't

I have a 2008 manual YR Yaris.

I've not had it long but on Friday it didn't want to start.

Unlocked the car using the remote fob sat down and turned the key and nothing happened. The dash lights were all on but something happened from the engine.

I thought maybe I has bumped the lock button so hit the unlock button again but nothing.

I locked it and then unlocked it nothing.

Tried that again and it started without a problem.

Left it to Sunday. Started with no issues but after it had been sitting a little while unlocked it didn't want to start again.

When through the same process again and it eventually started.

Any ideas what's going on here?

check the battery terminals are tight, Weak battery, bad starter, worn ignition switch (large bunch of keys ?) it could be any number of issues

have you tried a spare key ?

if it does it again give the starter a few love taps
