First make sure the battery if fully charged, if the battery is could then the most common problem would be a bad starter, have someone hold key in the start postion while you tap on starter and see if it starts if it does then starter is bad, another way to test is again hold key in start postion and test for power with a test light the small wire at starter if theres power at the small wire then starter is bad, there are two wires going to starter, one small and a batery cable size one, the bigger wire should always have power this cable wire comes from starter then the small wire only has power when the key is in the crank position. hope this helps.

i just had that same prob with mine. My Solution: NEW steering collum / key switch
what was happening was the key would get stuck in the igniton and i had to give it a little tap to get it to relese from the igniton. well, by giving it those taps, it popped a little plastic lever in the collum for the igniton switch. then the car would turn on with the key, but not turn off, i had to do the same thing that you had to do to to turn it off/on.

A steering collum later, and it was fixed
