It does seem to be a contact or immobilizer issue.


I think Marcel was describing a sticking starter solenoid, the one that sits on top of starter motor. The armature can corrode and stick in casing, hence a tap with (soft) hammer freeing it. This usually manifests as loud click and no starting action though.

I would also go with immobiliser issue.
