Hi there,

You may have a faulty transmission isolator switch, try wiggling the stick while you try and start. Or it could be the starter motor or relay. A mechanic will be able to inspect all this for you easily.

There may also be an issue with the drive away protection (called EWS) and if so will require a trip to the dealer or someone with the proprietary software to realign.
