    It sounds like your ignition switch is defective and needs replacing. may need the lock cylinder as well.

    Had the same problem. Just add a lubricant safe for that area of the car (see an auto parts store for that). I haven't had any problems since February and now it's almost July. If that doesn't fix it, you may need to see the dealer.
