Question about Cars & Trucks
Have the motor serviced and pay attention to the charging system of the motor. The voltage regulator is probably corroded out and is not charging the battery. have a load test done on the battery as well as salt water damages the internals of a battery. If the battery is a "low/no maintenance) battery still have it checked as all batteries need some sort of maintenance. Battery terminals corrode in salt water and build up resistance to current flow at the terminals so make sure that they are shiny clean and tight and covered with spray-on wax

This problem is the relay solanoid on the right firewall in the engine compartment. Relay powers everything in the vehicle excluding the stereo and the starter.

SOURCE: Turn key, nothing happens
It could be the park/neutral switch, next time it doesn't start try wiggling the shifter in park while turning the key, or shift to neutral and see if that will work. if that doesn't change the problem I would replace the ignition switch.

I had same problem w/ my '88 Ram50. Turned out to be bad contacts on the battery cables. Temp fix and test was to put a little screw between the post and the end connector. Didn't have a problem then, so I replaced the cables.
