There is a starter relay--probably in the relay box by the battery. Swap the starter relay with the horn relay and try to start the car. If that works, replace the relay. If it doesn't work, please see my tip at . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Check the ignition switch to see if it's coming apart. You will have to remove the lower trim on column. The electrical switch will separate causing your concern. Good luck.

Sounds like a bad motor to me and the other one is on it's way out. It does happen over time.
You can find them fairly cheap at a junkyard.
If you take off your door panel you can see them inside the door frame on each door. They are fairly easy to replace yourself. Just make sure that the window is all the way up before you take it off track to put in the new motor so you wont need to re-adjust it after you get the motor in.
