Day two: Google is wonderful! I researched the issue and narrowed it down to my ignition lock cylinder. I bought the part, gave it to my husband and - tada - its fixed! It was the starter spring that went bad on the cylinder. It looks like a scary job but once you get to the assembly (behind all the plastic covers) it only took about 1 hour.
