Only reciently bought this car and this only just started happening, I stopped for a fill up and when I went to start the car nothing happened. The lights were bright and all accessories worked. We cleaned the battery terminals and it started again. 2 days later won't start for several hours that starts again. I noticed that the ignition switch turns without a key in it, could that be where the problem is or is it something else?
