Car Start Problem

(1990 Honda Accord)
in Alexandria, LA on February 22, 2011
The problem started this winter. The first thing in the morning when I tried to start the car, I would turn the key in the ignition, but nothing would happen. If I kept trying to turn the car on, it would eventually start right up. (Took anywhere from 3-6 tries - battery is okay-had that checked.) Now that warm weather is back, I don't seem to have as much of a problem with starting the car, but I am afraid to take the car out of town, because I'm scared the problem will reoccur. This particular problem has not happened before. Please advise.

I'm suspicious that the ignition lock cylinder or the ignition switch is worn out. Get it checked by a Honda specialist.
