Try cleaning the key and ignition switch with alcohol or electric contact cleaner. Try a different key if you have one. And GM's are known to have problems with the ignition cylinder and theft deterant system. A new ignition cylinder costs $280-$300. Sometimes you can turn the key to the run position wait ten minutes and then start it. Some people say you have to turn the cylinder to the off but not lock position before starting after waiting the ten minutes, but my sister didn't have to with her Malibu.

this only occured when the ambient light sensor turned on the headlights when it got to dark. if that is happening then check the headlight switch, the one that also dims the interior lights. mine had a burnt connector and fried the circuit board. replaced it and it works good. check for lose wires and connectors in there as well which likely caused the short.
