sounds like your battery is dead.some will get to a point to where they wont jump start.(NOTE)with todays vehicles,it is not recomended to jump off one car with another.you may have a bad altanotor also.

My friends car has this same issue, she has to turn the key real hard or jiggle the switch just to get it started, I initially thought it was the starter, but it wasn't. The battery checked out fine, the starter checked out fine, I was left to believe that it may be the ignition switch. I don't want to rush the purchase of a new ignition switch because I don't know if she has a transponder switch or a non- transponder switch. I am beginning to think that the transponder might be what is going out.
