When this happens, you need to check to see if the starter is getting power. Have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check for power to the smaller wire on the starter. You should have 12+ volts. If you do, then the starter is going bad. If you don't, check the starter relay under the hood for power.

Let me know what you find.
