No problems until today. Turn key to start. Nothing happens; no clicks, no turning of motor nothing (battery is charged). Message center says: Start prevented. Try again. After several more tries, the motor starts turning over but won't ignite. Several more tries, engine ignites and runs fine. Stopped the engine for about 45 minutes. Exact same problem happens. When it finally ignites, I drive home, shut engine down and try to start again. It starts up immediately without problem. Any Ideas?

It's with all keys. I think I figured out what the problem is. The receiving end in the ignition switch is probably bad.
