There could be an issue with the connector between the lock cylinder (where the key goes) and the actual ignition switch. If you look at the pics below, I highlighted the two. Note they are two separate components.
When this happens and it doesn't work, do the dash lights turn on or does absolutely nothing happen. I'm trying to determine if it is an issue with the ignition switch, a relay issue, or a bad starter.
Let me know.
See pic below.
