Question Answered: 

i think a lock smith should not do this repair,nothing against lock smiths ,it not an everyday lock and it may need to be carefully cut out , ,it could be one of three things ,#1 key #2 tumbler # the complete cylinder ,if the key does not get to a certain position than the steering lock needs to be cut out ,it should be 2 hours labor plus parts for a complete set up

Question Answered: 

first line of diagnosis is to have multiple keys ,test each key for a day ,or unless it happens right away ,then probably want to take it in and narrow it down to an EIS electronic ignition switch ,or it could just be low voltage in the vehicle , hope this helps
