Try this pull the steering wheel as far to the left as possible and while it is in this position try to insert key. Sometimes the steering wheel lock will get in a bind and prevent the key from being inserted. Hope this helps!!!

I have had the same problem and I have come to the conclusion it is the security system. After 3 minutes the car will start so there is nothing wrong with the battery or starter. I have had it to the dealer a few times and they cannot solve it. It may be the locks on the doors and they may not be resetting properly. I have learned to live with it.

EIther the IAC or throttle postion sensor is dirty or faulty. Or leaky vacuum hose somewhere. As long as it is not missing and running weird, then you may have bad coil packs.
