This may sound really stupid but just as a start- is the car in park? I did this the first time I bought my car- I called RAC out and everything.
Assuming you arnt as silly as I was, it may be your ignition barrel, this happened to me a little while ago. If it is this it will cost you a couple of hundred dollars to get done at a shop, or if you or you know someone thats good with cars you can usually pick up the part for around $50 secondhand. Im not sure how to check this though sorry, when mine when the key was really loose, it didnt feel tight and click over like it should.
