My car has an automatic transmission.

There are several issues that could possibly cause this issue. A bad connection, a failed starter (or starter solenoid), a bad relay, or any number of other possibilities. It would be best to have a certified mechanic do some diagnostic testing to pinpoint where the problem is located.
