Might have been a bad connection, you mention the only thing you did was check connections and it started. I wouldn't think starter at this point unless it'* getting slow or intermittently giving you a hard time.
When I turned the key, everything sounded normal, 'ding ding ding', the fuel pump turning on, dash on, etc. But it just wouldn't turn over... The car turned over fine today too. Wierd stuff.

I've had the chip not read after having the key in my pocket. Maybe lint? Cake icing? Whatever on the contacts. I automatically keep rotating the key trying then lock out the key for the time 3-5 minutes.
I did try to turn it over 3-4 times and I may have tried it agian after 3-5 mins. hmm.
My pass-key chip looks fine and I'm pretty sure i didn't have any cake icing on it.
Hopefully it continues to start right up.
