Could be vacuum leak, but I’ll let someone with more experience elaborate. Because if it does not happen when parked, I am at a loss.

When did it begin to happen? Were there other problems with the car (especially electrical or transmission) at the time it had happened? Does it really completely silent, or do you hear some relay clicking sound, but the car does not turn over? Did you check the fuses (in the fuse box, or in the engine compartment)? Did you check connection to the starter itself? If not, check and clean the terminals, if they are dirty or corroded. Also, check the continuity from the starter to the battery, then go from there. If it is an electrical problem, then, as always: check connections, and wires.

Do you have after-market fog lights attached to the bumper? It is older car, so I assume something like that. Or is it an OEM equipment? Why can’t they just put two fog lights anyway?
