Hi MO MO,
When you said hesistation in startup, is it the starter feels like it wants to crank but just got stuck?
If it is, then it could be the ignition switch, wire from ignition to starter solenoid, starter poor carbon contact or a failing battery(high rate discharge is poor).
Ignition switch is an electrical item.
I don't know about the warranty so you need to check it locally.
