    Chances are that over time the small wires that travel up the steering column which allow the ignition lock cylinder to read the "chip" in your ignition key have become damaged. At some point the vehicle may not start. I would suggest you get this problem diagnosed and repaired. If it is indeed the damaged wires to the ignition lock cylinder - the lock cylinder will need to be replaced and a new ignition key made.
