Replace the starter automatic, looks not a big issue.

Either ignition switch of starter ,,, I suspect the switch. Try this ...put some side pressure on the switch and turn is slow ... see if that does it ... of course if it does then only the electrical part of the switch needs replacement ,,,, avoid changing the Tumbler because you will get into coding issues with a different key ... good luck
