Question about 2008 Pontiac G6
It used to happen just once in a while and it would eventually turn after about an hour or so of turning on the wheel and jiggling the key. Just yesterday it happened twice and one day leaving me stranded it eventually started but as soon as I got home and turned my car off I tried to start it up again and wouldn't turn. I tried again today and the same thing happened. What should I do? It's got to be either the key or the ignition, I can't find my second key I got with the car so should I take it to an auto shop and see if it's the ignition or should I try and buy a new key?
Key an lock cylinder maybe ! Try some WD- 40 first , Spray a little into the lock cylinder or use key stuff made for that Silicone spray or powdered graphite are the most easily found lubricants Under the Hood Dealing with difficult ignition switch

Do the dash lights come on ? They should come on when the key is turned to the on position. If nothing happens check the engine relay. It is not too expensive to replace if you really want to eliminate that as the problem. Check all wires going to the starter and make sure it is wired correctly.

SOURCE: 2000 Pontiac Sunfire wont start
Its likely that you have either a bad ignition switch or a bad neutral safety switch (if stickshift, clutch switch) Try starting in neutral...if it starts, change neutral switch (jump across clutch switch, check starting in neutral with your foot on the brake) Ignition switch is on top of steering column under dash.
