Could it be the ignition switch itself? Not a hard job but you'll have to deal with the chip in the key.

thanks i will give it a try , no chip in key

Are you sure about that? My 1999 F 350 did. You can get it tested at most places that cut keys.

deff no chip replaced starter switch, and ignition switch , still nothing
