I suspect what you're hearing is a single click each time you turn the key. If so, the problem is either a dead/burned spot on the starter motor that resists electrical current, or a dead solenoid that eventually moves after it's been warmed up by the repeated attempts to start. Other possibility is a defective starter switch; in this case, when the car won't start, hold the car on start and wiggle the key.

The weirs thing is. Its starting with my spare key!!


The car's still under full warranty; have the dealer address this. Might be a defective key or fob, and it might cost you nothing.
