    if you think it is a security issue, use another key to see if the key is bad.

    It is the passlock system - get them to replace the ignition. In the interim, hold the key to "on" for a few seconds - as if you were going to operate the windows while the car is off - once all the dashboard lights come on and you hear the fuel pump, you can start it right up.
