CAR SOMETIMES WON'T START

2001 Mitsubishi Mirage

Electrical problem
2001 Mitsubishi Mirage 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 218000 miles

Sometimes when I turn on the ignition I get no dash lights. Then when I turn off the key the back on I get the lights and can start the car. But when this happens the clock and radio lose their presets and have to be reset to the correct time and such. Also sometimes when this happens and I step on the brake and move the transmission lever then the lights will come on and I can start the car.

For a start get the ignition switch and park/neutral switch tested.
