If it's not cranking at all when the issue happens, but you can hear the fuel pump priming, it very likely could be the starter, or a failed/failing relay in the immobilizer.
Before blowing a hundred notes on an entire new starter though, you might want to look for a seller on Ebay who sells refurb kits for the starter solenoid (which would probably be the only part at fault inside the starter). This did the trick for mine when it got to around that age. The kits go for around 15, as best as I can remember.
