Might be a faulty ignition lock cylinder or switch. have your mechanic diagnose it.

That's the problem, my mechanic will not answer the phone & I can't afford to take it to a shop. If we can figure out what's wrong with then we couuld buy the part & my boyfriend couuld fix it. Just for some reason we can't get anyone to come look at it even after we've offered money.
