You most likely have a bad sensor in the ignition lock however the wires leading to it have problems sometimes.
You likely need a new ignition lock but they fail quite often. I can give you a way to bypass the lock sensor if you want but a new lock would be the right way to fix it, assuming the lock is actually the problem.
That sensor can be bypassed. You would need a digital ohmeter to measure the resistence of the pellet in the key. Now go to Radio Shack and buy a resister of the exact same value as the key pellet. Go to the base of the steering column and locate the two thin white wires that go up to the sensor. Cut the two wires and solder the resister between the two ends coming from the harness. This will permanently bypass the sensor but not the rest of the system.
