Question about 1999 Oldsmobile 88
With this being a gm car most of these have a sensor built into the key. If it doesnt click or anything maybe just the dash lights come on when turning it over then it could be theres a bad connection with this sensor or the key itself is going bad due to being worn. try spaying a lube of some sort into the key tumbler and see if that helps.

The most probable cause for this is a an intermittent problem with the Starter solenoid and/or starter.
When the car does not respond to turning the ignition key on can you hear a click from under the hood?
If you can that is the starter solenoid trying to turn on the starter motor. I would say the starter needs to be replaced.
If you cannot hear anything, then the solenoid ( which is just a relay) is probably bad.
I just replaced my startere on my F150, starter & solenoid come as a unit.... cost about $125.
Hopes this helps good luck Loringh
