Would most likely be the solinoid in the starter motor....Wack it with a spanner it will normally let it start up once she has had a good wack....

Could be alot of things I guess. Check out whats been suggested above, I'm not sure how the auto's work but if you give it a jiggle while you try to turn the car on, its worth a try.
