Palio 1.6 el starting problems

My 2001 Fiat Palio 1.6 el 16v has suddenly out of the blue decided that once you have drove it for a period of time in town and then park it to use latter again the palio simply refuses to start making a very slight klicking noice! Then when the car is left for a hour or so then it decides to start! I have had the Palio on diagnostics equipment which shows no electronic fault. I have a battery check test which passed. Please can anybody assist it what the problem can be! thanking you

Check the very thick wires that connect the battery to starter motor and battery to gearbox.
Also check starter motor.

That does sound like an earthing problem - battery earth clamps/terminals or where it connects to the engine block
