Hi team! have what I think is a real curly one! Put key in ignition, turn and nothing happens (all electrics have been checked out OK) take key out put back in and bingo, all is OK......happens every now and and again but I can't for the life of me understand why....my concern is will it happen whilst driving and everything just shuts down??

Ignition switch, or your key is well worn, but you say now and again, check that the connector is tight on the back of the switch, if thats ok, I would say switch.
