Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.

This issue comes from the tumbler pins inside of the ignition key barrel starting to get worn out and come out of alignment, this is what causes this problem. The ignition key barrel will need to be replaced to cure this issue.
